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!

ingredients:

  • 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.

directions:

  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!

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

enjoy!
