protein pancakes or waffles.

this recipe can be made as pancakes or waffles. the measurements below make three servings for me. they freeze well, but if i don’t want to make the whole batch then i just make 1/3 of the recipe. enjoy!


  • 1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup fat free cottage cheese
  • 6 egg whites or 1 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (one that is around 25g of protein per scoop)*
  • 1 TB vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 TB cinnamon (depending on your palate)
  • sweetener, if desired. i don’t use this because i add my sweet stuff on top.

*you can omit this and the recipe will still turn out perfectly.


  1. blend all ingredients together in a blender or magic bullet.
  2. let batter sit for five minutes.
  3. cook on waffle iron or in griddle for pancakes as you would any other waffle or pancake.
  4. top with whatever you’d like!

protein waffle with PB2 (powdered peanut butter):

protein pancakes with butter & syrup:

protein waffles with banana and almond butter:

i like using nut butter as a topping to get a little healthy fat involved in the recipe because on their own, the ratios are 50% protein, 40% carbs and 10% fat. these are good hot OR cold, when i was in school i was known to carry them around in my purse to eat between classes!!

nutrition stats without any topping (whole recipe): 734 calories, 90g protein, 69g carbs, 8g fat

(1/3 of recipe): 245 calories, 30g protein, 23g carbs, 3g fat

I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally
educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail
on the head. The issue is something not enough folks
are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

I have to post a review, so people who see this recipe will know this is a perfect protein pancake recipe! I’ve been searching a while for a great oatmeal pancake recipe that had a lot of protein, but flavorful too. This is it! I doubled the batch, and added half a zucchini and spinach to it. Would have added more zucchini if I had more; either way, the added veggies made the recipe more plentiful and more moist, in my opinion.
Thank you very much for sharing!

Like all markets, there is a difference between purchase price
and selling price with Forex, called the gap between demand and supply.
It doesn’t require a special license or training, just an account with
a Forex brokerage and a small deposit to start your trading with.
The Forex market should never be taken lightly, it has the capability to
make or break your fortune within seconds.

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.

I think that you need to write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t speak about these topics.
To the next! Many thanks!!

Can I eliminate cinnamon? Maybe I can add brown sugar or honey.. Your pancakes looks so tasty but I hate the taste of cinnamon…
