Jack and I have temporarily traded in our Sunday “Rise” breakfasts for this lower calorie, high protein breakfast. I constantly struggle to get enough protein in during the day and I really don’t love eggs, at least not in large quantities, so this recipe has been a huge help. It’s also nice because you can make a batch of pancakes and use them as a quick grab and go breakfast during the week. I added fiber to this recipe because I’m trying to increase my fiber intake, but you can leave it out if you want. The taste and consistency is the same either way.
Serves: 1 (2 large pancakes)
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 cup raw oats
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 2 scoops GNC Natural Brank Clear Mixing Super Fiber with Probiotics (optional)
- Topping of choice (I like 1 tbsp peanut butter)
- Blend all the ingredients until a batter forms. Pour over a hot griddle.
- Flip when the edges start browning.
- Serve with topping of choice.
- Peanut Butter
- Walden Farms Zero calorie syrup
- Berries heated over the stove to form a syrup (one of my faves)
