Hey Guys! Here is an easy recipe that only takes minutes to prepare with a few simple ingredients. These pancakes are delicious and are packed with protein. I hope you like them as much as I do!
Serves 1, about 3 medium pancakes(feel free to double the recipe!)
1/4 cup Old Fashioned(Not instant/quick cooking) oats
1/4 cup cottage cheese(any percentage, I prefer to use 2%!)
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Directions: In a blender or food processor combine everything expect the blueberries until smooth(don't worry if a there are a few grainy bits of oats, they won't change the texture of the pancakes). Spray a pan with cooking oil and heat over medium-low heat. Drop a scoopful of batter into the hot pan. (I like to shake the pan a little to spread the batter since it's quite thick). Add a few blueberries and cook for several minutes until the batter bubbles and the underneath is browned nicely, flip and repeat on the other side. The key to these pancakes is to cook them low and slow so the middle cooks through without burning the outside. Once finished, place on a plate and top with whatever you'd like! I used some sugar-free syrup but you could also use smashed fruit and a little sweetener heated in the microwave, light whip cream or even almond butter! Just be creative and dig in!
**NOTE** These pancakes will take longer to cook then regular pancakes so don't flip them too early!
