Protein Pancakes

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!

Hi Renee - I really have been enjoying your blog! Thanks for such great recipes and advice! I have a workout group and trainer that I meet with weekly - my trainer gave me a container of pancake mix similar to yours minus the berries and I looooooove them! Mostly because I only need one to fill me up! Thanks for being such an inspiration!
