Low-Carb Gingerbread Protein Pancakes(Top Pick!)

Gingerbread Protein Pancakes
Merry almost Christmas everyone! These are going to kick-off my healthy Christmas inspired recipes! These were 100% my favourite breakfast I have had in a long time. They have an almost buttery taste and definitely taste like gingerbread cookies! They are absolutely perfect for a Christmas morning breakfast. Want some? 

Ingredients:
1 tsp molasses(5g carbs, 4g sugar) *Note: I probably ended up with about 1/2 a tsp in my whole batter by the time I finished with it since it stuck to everything haha! So don’t worry I have accounted for that 🙂
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4-1/2 tsp ginger (you can add more to taste)
dash of cloves
1 scoop vanilla protein powder(I recommend PVL creamy Vanilla)
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tbsp flaxseed (or more, it’s up to you!)
1/2-1 tsp splenda, to taste (or another sweetener)
3.5 tbsp cottage cheese (2g sugar, 3 carbs, 1g fat)
1/4 cup egg whites
1 tbsp almond milk ( add less if you like a thicker batter, could sub. any other milk)
1/4-1/2 tsp vanilla

Toppings:
-Optionals: Raisins, walnuts, pecans, mini chocolate chips
-Sugar-Free Syrup
Or
Cream cheese frosting:
-2 tbsp low-fat/fat-free cream cheese combined with splenda, vanilla extract and cinnamon.

Directions: Preheat your oven to the lowest temperature setting and then shut off. Heat a pan over low-medium heat. Spray with Pam. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Blend together all the wet ingredients in a food processor/blender except molasses until smooth. Stir wet ingredients into dry. Now heat the molasses in the microwave for about 20 seconds to make it easier to handle. Then using a fork, whisk in the molasses until well combined. Use a ladle to pour batter onto hot pan to form pancake shapes. Feel free to add a few mini chocolate chips or raisins to your pancakes! Flip after 1-2 minutes on each side. (Look for browning or bubbles coming through.) Place the finished pancakes into the oven on a plate to keep warm. Repeat until batter is gone. Take out of oven and serve with sugar-free syrup. Enjoy!
