A high protein breakfast is the way to go if you’re interested in weight loss, stable blood sugar, and great energy. This healthy protein pancake recipe fits the bill.
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese
- 1/2 banana
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 T mini chocolate chips
Blend all the ingredients except chocolate chips in a blender, and process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour half of batter into heated skillet, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon mini chips. Flip when the bottom of pancake is golden, and cook the other side.
Repeat with the remaining batter and mini chips to make 2 pancakes. (You can wrap one of the pancakes in plastic or a ziploc and save it for another day. You could even double or triple the recipe and pre-make breakfast for a few days all in one shot.) Try them with sugarfree syrup, or with the other half banana sliced on top.
Feeling nutty? Try banana walnut pancakes: simply use chopped walnuts instead of the chocolate chips for a different twist.
Enjoy! Makes 2 servings.
