Protein Pancakes

These pancakes are SO good!!  My husband tried a couple recipes and has finalized this as our favorite recipe for delicious, protein pancakes.  This recipe makes 4 pancakes .

Ingredients

1 cup instant rolled oats
1 cup low sodium cottage cheese
1 banana
4 egg whites
1 egg
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Fresh blueberries to top (optional)

Directions

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until well mixed and almost smooth.
  2. Warm a non-stick pan on medium to medium low heat (you will have to learn your range to determine the right setting). Spray with cooking oil.
  3. Pour a quarter of the batter (approximately 3/4 cup) into the hot pan and cook until bottom layer is browned.
  4. Flip pancake and brown other side.  Do not undercook because the consistency in the middle will be too wet.
  5. The pancakes are tasty without anything on top (to some people) but for people with outrageous sweet teeth like me, you can drizzle with a little natural maple syrup…or I think they are even better with a drizzle of raw honey.
  6. Top with a few berries if you’d like.

I can eat 1-2 of these pancakes for breakfast with a couple blueberries on top and they keep me full for hours!

21 Day Fix: 1 pancake counts as 1 carb/yellow, 1/2 protein/red, 1/2 purple/fruit.
