Nutrition: Protein Pancakes with cottage cheese

Protein Pancakes with cottage cheese: EVERYONE, even my "non-fitness" friends love these pancakes!
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup frozen, warmed berries with their juices as a topping or sugar free syrup
  • Splenda to taste
Blend first four ingredients until smooth (I use the magic bullet; if you use a blender be sure to put the wet ingredients in first)
Pour onto heated griddle or non-stick pan (check to see if its hot enough with a splash of water-if it sizzles, its hot enough)
When pancake bubbles, flip and cook the other side
I like to top mine with frozen, organic strawberries-warmed and sliced and poured over the top with their juices. You can use Splenda to taste.
