Protein Pancakes

I love pancakes! They are my perfect weekend treat after the gym. I’m sure i’m not alone in feeling like this, but, I hate having a killer workout and then filling my body with crap. Feels counter productive. Those big fluffy buttery flour filled pancakes also just seem to sit in my stomach all day. I despise that feeling.

This recipe is super QUICK, super EASY and super LIGHT.

Heart shaped pancakes

1. In a blender GRIND enough oatmeal to make 1/4 of oatmeal flour.
2. Blend together all ingredients.
3. lightly grease your pan/or use a non-stick
4. Pour batter in (I don’t measure it. It depends on the size of the pancake you want.)
5. When the edges of the pancake are no longer wet and shiny and there are bubbles forming in the middle of the pancake, flip em’ over and cook the other side.
6. If you have a warming drawer stick them in there till the rest are ready!
7. Top them with fresh fruit and maple syrup or…

My favourite toppings:

1. Blend cottage cheese with lemon zest and about 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice – I spread it on and add fresh fruit. This is great if you like tart toppings topping!

OR

2. Cut up half an apple into bite size pieces and cook it in a bit of butter with cinnamon.

Optional Toppings:

-fresh fruit
-Greek yogurt

  2. Hi Nikki, I love eating healthy pancakes. I usually make the easy banana-egg ones, but I definitely want to try yours as well! I see 2 times baking soda on the ingredient list… does that mean in total I need 1 and a half tsp of baking soda?

    Oops! one should have been baking powder..so two different things! Thanks for bringing that to my attention! XO

  4. I am so excited to try these… so I have a bit of a cottage cheese phobia..no idea why I love all other cheese but I am going to try it with the recipe above! Also is the 1/2 tsp supposed to be the baking powder or baking soda?

    Thanks!

  5. Nikki,
    I made this recipe for my meal prep and it didn’t turn out well 🙁 I wasn’t able to flip the pancakes for various reasons so I decided to have them uncooked, but the flavour still isn’t good. I think it was the combination of my vanilla protein powder and cottage cheese. What type of protein powder did you use?

    Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that! I’ve made them with allmax vanilla prpotein and optimum nutrition vanilla protein powder. I personally didn’t really taste the vanilla…or cottage these they were just super moist. I use the non-fat cottage cheese and make sure it’s drained (not the dry one though!). Good luck!!
