Protein pancake recipe

Jul 31, 2012

As promised, here's the recipe for the yummy protein pancakes I posted on Instagram earlier. They're low in cal/sugar and high in protein. Perfect before my morning workouts.

I got the recipe from my coworker/friend Jennifer's blog. She's a consultant by day and a fitness coach by night. Here's the recipe:

1/2 cup Oatmeal
1/2 cup Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup Eggs
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

Makes six 4-5" pancakes.

I tweaked a couple of things, based on what I had/didn't have lying around the kitchen.
- I nixed the ground flaxseed. Only because I didn't have any on hand.
- I added a big ol' scoop of vanilla whey protein powder. It added just the right amount of sweetness to my pancakes. And of course, more protein.
- I stirred in blueberries at the end because 1, I'm not a banana fan and 2, I had a butt-ton of blueberries. They added a refreshing and delicious pop!

And there you have it. I put everything (except the blueberries--stirred those in last) in my blender and away we went. Super easy. I made a triple batch (hey, I have a hungry boyfriend, and I'm not so dainty when it comes to my protein needs either) so we'd have a bunch to munch on over the next week. And the verdict is: They're light enough that I don't feel weighed down and I can still jog a mile to bar method without feeling barfy, but they're so chock full of protein that after an hour of bar method, I still have energy to jog back home. And they taste pretty damn good too. Hooray!

This was my first "oopsiedaisy" batch
Much better!

Ooh yea. Efficiency in the kitchen. Pshaw.
