Okay I know this is a little dramatic but lately I have tried so many protein pancake attempts and overall they were all good but none were REALLY good until I made these! They are the perfect blend of ingredients!
*Makes 1 large serving of 3-4 pancakes
Here it is!
3.5 tbsp cottage cheese
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp almond milk
1/2-1 tsp splenda(my protein powder is already pretty sweet so I don't need much)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 scoop good quality vanilla protein powder(I use creamy vanilla PVL)
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
-1/2-1 tsp coconut oil
-1/2 cup mashed berries(thaw in microwave and mash with fork) mixed with 1 tsp splenda or other sweetener
(I used 1 large strawberry + some raspberries & blueberries)
Directions: Heat a pan over low-medium heat. Spray with Pam(you may need to re-spray for each pancake). Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. In a food processor, combine all wet ingredients and pulse until smooth. Stir wet ingredients into dry.(Don’t over mix). Use a ladle to pour batter onto hot pan to form pancake shapes. Flip after 1-2 minutes on each side. (Look for browning or bubbles coming through.) Repeat until batter is gone, placing each finished pancake onto a plate inside your oven(heated to lowest temp. then turned off) to stay warm. Serve all the pancakes warm. Dip a knife in coconut oil and lightly spread over each pancake. Top with sugar-free syrup & hot fruit mixture. Enjoy! 🙂
