Weekend of Pancakes

So I guess I went a little pancake crazy this weekend. I think I made pancakes 6 times in the span of 3 days. But, sometimes pancakes are just so much more fun to eat than a bowl of oatmeal.  And yes, I have oatmeal nearly everyday and no one can convince me otherwise.  AND pancakes make a great dessert too.  Eating carbohydrates at night does not make you gain weight.  Eating too many calories in general makes you gain weight.  I workout in the evenings so I eat a lot of carbohydrates after my workouts to repair my muscles and help my body recover.  This means, the more carbohydrates I can consume the better!  So, that leads to pancakes.

Anyway, I thought I would round-up my pancake recipes from the weekend so I could share with you all.  Do you like pancakes?  Well try these bad boys out!!  I’ve posted the ingredients below each variety and then explain the instructions for all at the end!
