Simple Protein Pancake
Okay, so if you are anything like me, you are always trying to find new ways to spruce up your meals. Trust me, I know it can be challenging at times. Here is a recipe that I made over the weekend that is guaranteed to fill you up.
1 scoop Vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup raw oats
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup egg whites
1 tsp peanut or almond butter (optional)
Mix first 4 ingredients together until well blended. Pour approximately 1/4 cupful onto hot pan and flip when edges are dry. Spread a thin layer of peanut or almond butter on top and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Approximately 200 calories per serving. Makes 2 servings.
Unlike regular pancakes that are filled with carbohydrates and typically drenched in a high calorie, sugary syrup, these pancakes have a blend of carbohydrates and protein and will keep you fuller longer.
