Love the Pancake, Hate the Carb
Why I Love This Recipe
I have always loved pancakes. I haven't always loved how I've felt after eating pancakes however. There's gotta be a better way. And this recipe is that way! No more bloat. No more disappointment after a pancake breakfast of indulgence. And, yes, there are still carbs in these pancakes - but really good ones! Like many of my other recipes you can make a simple version, or really elaborate.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup cottage cheese (I like reduced fat)
1 cup egg whites
A quick pour of vanilla extract (~2-3 tsp)
A few dashes of cinnamon
2 scoops protein powder (vanilla, chocolate, any kind you want to try! If you do vanilla, forgo the vanilla extract)
These are best made in a blender.
Add all the ingredients to a blender.
Blend until the oatmeal is smooth.
If you have the time, let the batter sit 15 minutes prior to cooking.
Turn on stove and cook pancakes on griddle at medium to medium-low.
Wait to flip pancakes until little bubbles form/burst.
