Philippe recently visited Julia out in California for the second time. During his trip, Julia signed up to run a marathon in Santa Monica to make up for having missed the canceled NYC Marathon. Since Julia would be running a full marathon on Sunday and Philippe would be running a half marathon, we decided to make some awesome pancakes on Saturday morning to carb load.
We found these pancakes on a blog called honey & jam. They are whole wheat pumpkin pancakes with an apple compote on top and we loved them! Here is the link to the original recipe if you’re interested:Β Link to recipe

We tweaked the recipe a little bit since we didn’t have any buttermilk, so we used a small cup of plain greek yogurt and a little regular milk to substitute. This probably made the pancakes a little denser than the buttermilk would have but also a bit healthier too. We also used one cup of whole wheat flour and one cup all-purpose instead of the 2 cups white whole wheat since that’s what we had on hand.

Marathon Day:

Julia signed up to run the “Guts and Glory” marathon on the beach in Santa Monica. It was a very small race with only about 20 runners, but it was right on the beach. With Philippe’s support through the second half, she finished in 4 hours and 5 minutes!
