Last week I asked around for some recipes for some protein pancakes and Krista from Bent Fork Nutrition fired me an email with this recipe.
These are some of my fav high protein pancakes… from the “Eat Clean Diet” cookbook!
6 egg whites, beaten until fluffy
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese (1% MF)
1 scoop protein powder (plain or vanilla)
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flax
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
optional: 1 cup blueberries or berries of your choice
- Place all ingredients (except beaten egg whites) in food processor and blend until mixture is combined.
- Pour blended ingredients into a bowl and fold in beaten egg whites. Fold until just blended. (If using berries, add at this time)
- Spray griddle/pan with cooking spray. Ladle pancake mixture onto griddle and cook until both sides are golden brown.
- Top with your favorite healthy ingredients–fruit, nut butters, maple syrup, yogurt, unsweetened applesauce…..
