I decided to give a new recipe for protein pancakes a try that I found on Healthy Food Ideas for Kids. I made some changes and am totally in love with these!
The picture is of ONE batch:
1/2 cup dry oatmeal
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/2 cup liquid egg whites
splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk or water
packet of splenda
dash of salt
Blend well or just until the oats disappear and it looks like batter. Cook on griddle like normal pancakes. I found that they need to cook a little cooler than regular pancakes so that they will cook all the way through.
This makes for one big plate full of low calorie protein pancakes (about 290 calories, 5 g fiber, 30 g protein)! I ate mine with 1/4 cup sugar free Mrs. Butterworths syrup (20 calories).
These were really really good. I was surprised by how much I liked them. Leave out the splenda and add a little pepper and they would make good sandwich wraps! Mine ended up in several sizes because I didn't realize how far the batter would go and I was hungry and impatient and wanted them all done asap.
Let me know if you try them! Enjoy...
