Protein Pancakes

Protein Pancakes

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 cup low fat (2%) cottage cheese

1/2 cup Egg Beaters or 3 egg whites

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Dash of salt

Water (Optional - a little water can be used to thin the batter if desired.)

In a blender, combine oats, cottage cheese, egg whites, vanilla extract, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Process until batter is smooth; then let rest for 5 minutes (this will make the pancakes fluffier). Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium/high heat. Pour batter into the heated skillet, cook until bubbles form on top and edges begin to look dry, then flip and cook other side. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes four 6-inch diameter pancakes with a calorie count of 280 for all 4 pancakes. Recipe can be doubled or tripled for more servings. Serve with butter and syrup or as desired.
