Skinny Protein Pancakes

I love breakfast food. I'd eat such foods at every meal if I could, if you're eating 6 times a day like other fit ladies then that's a lot of goodies! I don't know many who don't like pancakes. It's not enough that most pancakes are fluffy white flour and sugar then topped with what- butter and syrup. Calories, sugar, fats, insulin... don't expect to feel so fabulous after such consumption.

I have a few really good pancake recipes that are fit for any bikini driven lady. Some with healthy whole grain carbohydrates like oatmeal, and other like the following recipe that's low in carbohydrates so if you are feeling extra bold and want breakfast food later in the day, these are for you.

Skinny Protein Pancakes
  • 1/4 cup nonfat cottage cheese
  • 1 whole omega-3 egg
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 TBS unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pack of stevia or 2 drops liquid
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Let sit for 5 minutes (the baking powder will "fluff" up the batter).

Heat a skillet to medium. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Cook and eat without guilt!

Makes about 2-3 pancakes. Serves ONE!
