Protein Pancakes make breakfast a dessert!
1 Cup uncooked whole-grain oats (non-instant)
6 Egg Whites
1 Cup fat-free Cottage Cheese
1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2 Packets sugar substitute
1/2 Cup sugar-free Maple Syrup
1/4 Cup Mixed Berries
Lightly coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray; place over medium heat. In a blender, combine oats, egg whites, cottage cheese, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar substitute. Blend on medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
Pour batter, about 1/4 cup at a time, onto hot skillet. Cook pancake until bubbly on top and dry edges, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook other side until golden brown, about 2 more minutes.
While pancakes are cooking, microwave maple syrup until warm, about 20 seconds.
Place a portion of pancakes on 2 separate plates. Top with warm maple syrup and mixed berries. Serve and Enjoy!
