Protein pancakes have become a popular breakfast trend—not only are they featured in buzzworthy pictures on Instagram, but they are also reinventing the typical nutritional composition of a pancake. I’ve tried my fair share of pancakes, and finally found one that’s worth sticking with. This go-to pancake recipe ditches the artificial flavors and protein powders all while providing a nutritionally balanced and delicious meal. These pancakes will satisfy your cravings and make your stomach happy. Not only will they taste great, but they’ll also be ready in a flash.
Here’s a single serving recipe:
1/3 cup of oats
1/3 cup cottage cheese
2 egg whites or 1 egg
Optional add-ins: vanilla, cinnamon, honey, and/or fruit
- Combine ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
- Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray of choice.
