If you guessed Monster Cookie Pancakes...

If you guessed Monster Cookie Pancakes...

...then you guessed...

...then you guessed...



Sweet heavens above, there are no words to describe these Monster Cookie Pancakes.  You might as well call me Lara, because these tasted EXACTLY like Monster Cookies.  I don’t kid people.  Drizzled with pure maple syrup + crushed walnuts…I, ah…hmmmm….errrr….yep, no words ;).

Chocolate-Covered Katie – consider this my official entry into the Dessert Pancake-Making Extravaganza :).

Also, you blog readers are the bestest because after I posted last night about the mysterious “natural sugars” in my post-run Vitamin Water 10, you all came through with some stellar research!  Check out the comments people left – especially Anne K.’s fabulous links!  Then check out Ali’s Cleaner Plate Club for a fabulous post debunking the myths that erythritol & crystalline fructose are indeed “natural.”  Finally, head to Miss BuffMuffy’s blog for more real talk on these Vitamin Water 10 additives – woowoo…can’t say you didn’t learn anything today!  Snap~

Breaking news… did you know Larabar is coming out with 3 new flavors?!?!  Get ready, because they are going to announce them any day now – ahhhhhh, the excitement!

Also, head over to Fitnessista for another raw-some giveaway of a yummy cookbook from Sarma – queen of raw!

Then, if you haven’t had enough of my link love yet, bebop over to An Apple A Day for a yoga-tastic giveaway of a brand new fancy schmancy yoga mat.  I be definitely wanting to win that one!

After seeing these babes on the oh-so-fabulous Miss K’s blog, the peeps over at Cheerios were such dolls to send me some coupons for 2 free boxes of Banana Nut (I accidentally typed butt…haha!) Cheerios!



Thanks to Amanda and the gang for being so thoughtful and sending some love my way!  I’m buying my boxes this weekend, so expect a product review early next week.  However, the goodness does not end there.  Amanda and the Cheerios crew would love to send some love YOUR way – in the form of more Banana Nut Cheerios of course!


To win a box of Banana Nut Cheerios, this is what y’all gotta do…

(1) Leave a comment with your most creative idea for the next Cheerios flavor.

(2) If you have a blog, link back to this post on your blog and leave a 2nd comment with that link.  If you don’t have a blog, leave a 2nd comment with your favorite summer activity.

Two winners will be chosen and announced Monday morning at 8am CST.

Whelp, that’s it for me…don’t think I will be able to post from the cabin so I will see you on Sunday with the whole weekend recap.  Expect a mix of beer, sunbathing, drinking games, grilling, tubing, lake fun and tanning.  Yep – that will most def sum up my weekend, I promise you that (minus the 9-mile run I have to redo on Sunday…ugh!).

Happy (almost) weekend my friends!
