Breakfast for Dinner

On Sunday, when I'm at a loss for what to make for dinner I usually end up with breakfast. We've had a late lunch and possibly a nap anyway. After you wake up, you need breakfast, right? I'm not really a fan of breakfast for breakfast, especially not anything sweet, and definitely not blah pancakes. I like some umph to my pancakes, no syrup, but still a little fluffy. Allrecipes did not fail me and the key ingredient, orange juice, was growing in my backyard.

In a blender combine until smooth:
3 egg whites
1/3 cup applesauce
1 cup of orange juice
1/4 tsp lemon extract
In a bowl mix up:
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 TBL sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Mix 'em both together, just until moistened. Put 2 TBL at a time on a hot griddle coated with cooking spray. Flip and cook like typical pancakes. (Do you really need instructions on this?!)

We had breakfast for dinner here, too! No fancy ingredients growing in our backyard, though... :-)

Best pancakes ever! Yes, better than IHOP. Nothing sweet for breakfast? You? Must be someone else eating glazed doughnuts, swigging milk from the carton!
