pancake purist.

breakfast food is my favorite genre of food.  is that the right term? genre? sure.. i am going with it.

i could eat breakfast for, well, breakfast. and lunch. and dinner. and a midnight snack. it’s just the best.

one of my favorite breakfasty things to eat is pancakes.  thin ones, fluffy ones, plain ones, topped ones.. i love pancakes.

guess who doesn’t love them?

my husband.

guess who had to work yesterday?

my husband.

guess who made pancakes for breakfast because she had the day off and the house to herself?

this girl.


saturday morning, i whipped up a personal sized batch of my favorite protein pancakes.

i have tried lots of protein pancake recipes, but this is my favorite:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup eggbeaters (or egg whites)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

simply blend all ingredients and cook on a 350° griddle. simple!

this recipe is for one serving and is 275 calories before toppings.

whenever i am cooking pancakes, i spend the whole time thinking about what toppings to put on them.

some of my favorite topping combos are:

  • peanut butter & raspberry jam
  • maple almond butter & bananas
  • strawberries & powdered sugar

…to name a few.

but sometimes.. just sometimes.. i have to be a pancake purist.

what’s a pancake purist, you ask?

plain pancakes topped with two things: butter & syrup.


yesterday was one of those times.


side note: i am in love with my new mini boat from crate+barrel!


it makes pouring more syrup on as you go such a breeze..


oh man. what is it about the combination of butter and syrup?! match made in breakfast heaven.

what are you waiting for? go make some pancakes.


what goes on your pancakes?

I can’t believe that no one has asked this! But, what if you don’t have vanilla bean paste? Vanilla extract as a sub? How much?

Yep, it’s an equal conversion rate :)

Made these today after my hike. They are delicious :) Thanks for sharing the recipe. I like to eat my pancake roll-up style so that’s how I ate these babies. With flaked coconuts, peanut butter and chocolate. It.Hit.The.Spot.

I think I’m going to make the chicken casserole next this week.
