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.

Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes


  • 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.
