High Protein Pancakes

I like to say “Food is fuel, not entertainment” and these are definitely a good example of that.  Of course everyone is familiar with the old-fashioned pancakes made with butter, white flour, sugar, etc. But those are a thing of my past. They always left me sluggish, fatigued and hungry quickly. I now eat clean and feed my body what it needs to function, build and repair muscle, and feel great. Try these before a workout and see how well they sustain you.

In a blender combine:

2 scoops whole oats (blend on high to create a powder)

1 scoop protein powder (I use whey vanilla flavor)

1/2 scoop whole wheat flour

1 heaping tablespoon cottage cheese

1 egg

dash of cinnamon

coconut milk or water to moisten. Amount will very depending on how thin/think you like your pancakes.

Blend all on high and pour onto HEATED skillet/griddle

Serve with  any of the following: fruit, agave, honey, sliced bananas, walnuts, almonds, greek yogurt.

These are packed with protein and whole grains that will keep you full for hours. Just be careful how much sweetener you use so that your blood sugar doesn’t go all whacky while you’re in the middle of your workout.

    Yummy! For better or worse we do need more from our diet than nutrition. It’s so much easier to be motivated to eat something when we like the taste as well.

    I have recently taken a liking to topping pancakes with homemade yogurt and applesauce. Yours sound delicious too!
