Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

These oatmeal pancakes are packed with protein and fiber. The cinnamon gives this recipe a warming element and the local honey is a good way to boost your immune system during the changing of the seasons.

INGREDIENTS:
Makes 2- 3 servings

  • 1 c. old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 c. fat-free cottage cheese
  • 8 egg whites
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

PREPARATION:
Heat griddle to medium high heat and coat with coconut oil. Combine all ingredients and blend with an immersion blender until a smooth batter forms. Pour or scoop batter onto griddle in round pancake-like circles. Let cook until tops of the pancakes begin to bubble and then flip and let cook until they’re no longer doughy in the middle and slightly brown on both sides. Top with local honey, nutmeg, or fresh fruit.
