Cottage Cheese Protein Pannys

Cottage Cheese Protein Pannys

Who doesn't love pancakes...I mean seriously?!

In my never-ending quest to macro-fy my fave recipes and foods, I have been on the hunt for the perfect protein pancake recipe. Pancakes are quite the treat in our house. Michael really is the KING when it comes to crafting the ultimate stack, with some help from Aunt Jemima, of course. But with my current fitness goals, buttery golden box mix pancakes don't always fit nicely into my daily macronutrient plan, so I gotta get creative!

And let me tell ya...I finally perfected a new protein panny recipe that I’ve become addicted to! Perfect for breakfast, snacks and dessert; topping choices are endless too. Recently I've been keeping it light-ish with melted  all-natural peanut butter and some fresh organic berries.

Perfect Protein Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup oats {I use Trader Joe's gluten-free rolled oats}
  • 1/4 cup fat-free cottage cheese
  • 4oz liquid egg whites
  • 15g {approx. 1/2 a standard scoop} protein powder {I've been loving PEScience Select in gourmet vanilla or snickerdoodle, adds just enough sweetness!}
  • Shake of cinnamon
  • Optional add-ins: chocolate chips, berries, smashed banana

Just 2 steps to perfect pannys:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a small mixing bowl, split batter in 1/2. 
  2. Cook low in slow in a small oiled fry pan, these can be difficult to flip so I can't stress enough the LOW and the SLOW. they are worth the wait, so easy does it! Once you see the cake firm up around the edges you should be good to flip.

These do keep well, so feel free to double or triple the batter and keep a few tucked away in the fridge for a quick snack. Simply microwave for 30 seconds and slather on your favorite nut butter or syrup.

Let me know if you try them!
