My friends call them Chris-Cakes. Here is my secret recipe for my healthy protein pancakes. I bring them to work and snack on them throughout the day. They are great with peanut butter & banana, or plain. They are also a good post-(or pre-)workout meal. I usually don’t measure my ingredients, but have taken the time to do so for you. I will add the nutrition in later.
Place all of the following in a blender:
5 egg whites
1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt (or tofu)
1/2 cup non-fat cottage cheese
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (or 1/2 cup powdered non-fat milk)
2 tablespoons vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 serving Stevia natural sweetener
1 banana (or 1/2 cup of applesauce)
1/2 cup regular oatmeal
1/4 cup walnuts
Blend until smooth (if mix is too thick to blend, slowly add milk until smooth).
Pour into large bowl and stir in another 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup raisins, and 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Add more oats until you reach the desired consistency.
Cook on a griddle or in a pan like regular pancakes. Makes about 16 pancakes.
I make 2 or 3 batches at a time and freeze them. I also vary the recipe with different flavors of protein powder and different fruits. Get creative!
