I was introduced to these protein pancakes by Susan over at The Great Balancing Act . She has also recently come up with a Dairy-Free(ish) Protein Pancake recipe. Which I will be making soon for sure!
I have loved these from the moment I tried them! Sadly I haven’t been able to have them in a little while so I decided to have some for dinner! Sometimes I just want breakfast for dinner!
You can never go wrong when there are oats involved! That automatically wins me over!
1/2 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup Egg Whites (or 4 Egg Whites)
1 Tbsp Ground Flax
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Cinnamon (I put in tons!)
I put all of the ingredients into my Magic Bullet and blend until smooth (you can use a food processor too)! And then continue like you would with any other pancake, pour batter onto heated frying pan and flip when there are bubbles.
*Note: Sadly I used to be really bad at making pancakes, I know crazy eh?, and PB’s trick to making them with ease is when the edges get all shiny then they are most likely ready to be flipped. Since I was given that tip I haven’t had any problems and make yummy pancakes every time!
Of course no pancake eating experience is whole without some Pure Canadian Maple Syrup!
I used to use the sugar-free kind, which I must say I did love, but about two weeks ago I decided that I wanted to stop eating any and all artificial sweeteners. Surprisingly it has been going really well!
News on job front to come in the morning *Edited to add* The job news will be coming in the afternoon because I wrote a huge post tonight and it is gone, and I kind of want to unplug for the night*!
I Hope You Enjoy These and Happy Running!
