There’s something magical about pancakes. They feel indulgent–like weekend food.
But who are we kidding? Pancakes aren’t fancy. When it comes down to it, prep time doesn’t differ too much from the oatmeal I usually make myself, or toasted breakfast sandwiches I send Vore out the door with. So why save all the goodness for Sunday morning? I say no longer! Here’s a recipe to get your day-that-ends-in-y started right:
Weekday Protein Pancakes
1/3 cup rolled oats
4 oz container cottage cheese
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Stevia to taste
*Place the rolled oats a food processor or blender. Grind them down to a fine flour.
*Add in the cottage cheese, egg whites, baking powder and stevia. Blend until smooth. (Lumpy cottage cheese is nasty.)
*Spoon the batter into a pre-heated skillet and cook over medium high. When you see bubbles forming on the cakes, they are ready to flip.
*Serve with fruit, syrup or whipped cream if desired.
These pancakes are equal parts simple and delicious. A serving has more than 20 grams protein (score!) and tastes a lot like cheesecake. Pancakes for the weekday win!
