Protein Pancakes

In our house, Sunday means BIG breakfast day after church!  Everyone loves pancakes, especially me.  Traditional pancakes left me with the carb high, carb crash, and carb crave cycle every time.  I began trying recipes that would give me that happy pancake taste that I loved without the carb crazy cycle.

My favorite toppings are banana, walnuts, and a drizzle of honey.

The last *three ingredients* can be omitted without affecting the recipe, but I add them to bring depth to the flavor.

1 c. egg white

1 c. cottage cheese

1 c. old fashioned oats

2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. lemon juice *

1 tsp. baking powder*

1/4 c. coconut flour*

***up to 1/4 cup almond milk can be added if batter is too thick***

Some cottage cheese is dryer than others and coconut flour also varies.  Add almond milk, if necessary 1 Tablespoon at a time until desired pancake consistency is reached.

 

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Cook on a griddle with coconut oil.  Flip pancakes when bubbles appear and edges are slightly dry.

Often, I make a double batch and freeze them in individual portions with wax paper between each pancake.  Some days I am feeding people less interested in a healthy version of pancakes.  They get the old version (with a side of carb food coma) and I heat up my healthy version.  We all sit down and eat breakfast together.  Everyone is happy!  The frozen ones also make a wonderful breakfast on the go for those weekdays that do not have time for dragging out the blender. I  use them as the “bread” for a breakfast sandwich that has egg, spinach, and feta. So many possibilities!   Meal planning is a key to being able to eat healthy everyday and on the run.
