Retro Spaghetti Squash Pancakes

by Meghann on October 1, 2009

I took the plunge this afternoon and finally decided to try the plain ole Amazing Grass Superfood Bar. I’ve tried the chocolate version before and enjoyed it, but the bar sans chocolate kind of scared me.


With out the chocolate coating, the bar is exactly like a Larabar. I was afraid the date taste would be too strong, but it was surprisingly mellow. The grassy component actually hid the over all sweetness of the dates. I am happy to admit the bar wasn’t bad at all. It’s very filling and I would have no problem eating it again. 🙂

Just goes to show, you never know if you really like or dislike something until you actually try it. 😉

For dinner tonight I had to dig into my own archives and re-discovered my recipe for Spaghetti Squash Pancakes I made last December.


I purchased a spaghetti squash the other week and this recipe has been on my mind ever since. I did tweak it a bit with what I had on hand.

  • 1/2 Spaghetti Squash
  • 1/3 cup Egg Whites
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • Cilantro
  • Chopped Jalapeno
  • Minced Garlic
  • S&P

The combination made two large pancakes.

I topped tonight’s serving with Black Beans, Spinach, Salsa, and a handful of the spaghetti squash seeds I baked in the oven just as I would pumpkin seeds.


The Spanish themed spaghetti squash was amazing! Yum! Can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve had. I do have another pancake chilling in the fridge so I promise you will be seeing this agin in the very near future.


Tonight Maddie had her THIRD puppy training class and I have to admit I am very proud of her. We learned to walk on a loose leash with an automatic sit, how to ‘leave it’ and ‘take it’ and how to lay down. She also had plenty of play time.


We have a lot to work on, but I’m happy with the progress!

After class I had a Strawberry So Delicious Fruit Bar.


Maddie is pooped from class! I’m going to take advantage of her state of submissiveness for some cuddling. I encourage everyone to do the same.

Good Night!
