Fast, tasty, simple, budget-friendly and full of protein, Blender Protein Pancakes are one of my very favorite breakfasts…and snacks, too, if I’m being honest!
Here’s how to make a batch (or two–you know how I love double-batch cooking):
1 cup cottage cheese (check labels for additives, extra sodium or sugars)
1 cup old fashioned oats
6 egg whites OR 5 whole eggs (depends on your needs)
Put ingredients in blender; blend on low for 30 seconds. Turn speed up to medium and blend for approximately one minute until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
(If your blender is on the fritz, you can also easily use a hand mixer…which I had to do last year!)
Cook over medium-low heat, use cooking oil/fat of your choice (I often use a small teaspoon of coconut oil).
I also make a berry ‘syrup’ to go over the top by microwaving frozen berries (add some pure maple syrup, organic honey, or stevia if you want to sweeten it up), or top them with some apple butter or fresh fruit.
*You can add in cinnamon, vanilla extract, etc. to change up the flavor
Sweet or savory, these easy to grab-and-go pancakes can be a really helpful addition to your kitchen, too.
Enjoy the ‘planned-overs’ all week long!
