Oh...how I love pancakes! Another one of my favorite pancake recipes. Try it!
6 egg whites, beaten until fluffy
½ cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 scoop whey protein
½ cup oatmeal, uncooked
¼ wheat germ
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp olive oil
½ tsp cinnamon
1. Place all ingredients except beaten egg whites in a food processor and pulse or blend until mixture is uniform.
2. Pour blended ingredients into a bowl and add the egg whites. Fold until just blended.
3. Prepare a griddle with cooking spray. Ladle pancake mixture onto griddle and cook until both sides are browned.
For healthier pancakes, skip the syrup and place a scoop of unsweetened applesauce on each pancake. Or you can try this: Place ½ cup of blueberries or raspberries in a small saucepan along with 1 tbsp of water. Mash the berries and bring the mixture to a boil.When the fruit is uniformly hot and beginning to get syrupy, remove from heat and pour into a small jug. Drizzle over pancakes.
