Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

[ Protein packed pancakes ]

It should be declared mandatory that Sundays are dedicated to pancakes with warm maple syrup, reading in bed & lazily enjoying the company of someone special. Last Sunday we opted to stay in doors [ excuse: the slight rain ] & cook homemade pancakes while watching our new favorite TV show American Horror Story. I made these delicious protein packed pancakes [ created by my girlfriend & fellow Pure Barre instructor, Dory ]. Needless to say, it was a lovely, relaxing day.

Quick Skinny Tip: The best kinds of syrups are pure maple ones  [ found at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s ]. The low sugar & low calorie syrups are filled with the sugar replacement & chemical, aspartame [ yuck! ].

Oatmeal Protein Pancake Recipe

* Serves two people

Ingredients:

1/2 dry rolled oats – optional: you can soak them in water and drain if you want them to be a little soft to avoid indigestion or constipation.

3 egg whites – To our vegan friends, you can use flax egg – which is a combination of flax seeds and water.  You can also use chia seeds instead of flax.

1/2 scoop of protein powder [ I like Isagenix – contains alot of vitamins & antioxidants ]

Oat flour –  instead of baking powder to bind our ingredients together.

Dollop of low fat cottage cheese

Sprinkle of cinnamon

1/2 packet of Stevia [ no aspartame! ]

A handful of raspberries, blueberries and/or strawberries

Optional: Vanilla extract for extra flavor and aroma

Toppings: a sprinkle of walnuts or almonds, or greek yogurt

Meal prep:

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, mix well – then add the egg whites or flax egg; mix again till all ingredients are together. Spray a pan with cookie spray.  Alternatively, you can use coconut oil which has health benefits as well.  In medium heat – pour small sections into the pan approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Flip when pancake is lightly brown. Options for toppings: sprinkle with walnuts or almonds, or spread with organic jam, sugar-free peanut butter, or pure maple syrup. Serve hot. This protein-packed meal can keep you full.  I highly recommend it!  Eat and enjoy with someone special.

This healthy protein pancake recipe is best paired with frothy coffee.  Read more here.  I would love to hear your version of a healthy pancake recipe.  Let me know in the comments.

    These look yummy! Quick question… 1/2 cup of the Rolled Oats or 1/2 the Package? Wasn’t quite sure and just wanted to make sure I didn’t screw them up!
