Protein Pancakes!


Ingredients:


8 Egg Whites Beaten until Fluffy
1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese
1 1/2 Scoop Protein

1/2 Cup Oatmeal uncooked
1/4 Cup Wheat Germ
1/4 Cup Ground Flax seed
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Place all ingredients in a food processor( except egg whites ) and blend until uniform. Usually only takes a couple of minutes.
Pour Blended ingredients into a bowl and add Egg whites
Fold until blended
Spray a small amount of olive oil & Cook both sides on Griddle until browned

 



Enjoy!


Variations:
If you want to spice it up a little, try adding 1/4 tsp vanilla to your batter! You can also add 1 Tbsp Flax Meal. Experiment with the protein powder- you can also try using Chocolate flavor if you’re feeling frisky.


Toppings:

Top with Maple Syrup (I go for the REAL DEAL) just keep your portions in check! 1 Tbsp is enough for me. 

You can also opt for sugar free maple syrup, honey, fruit, yogurt (I like Plain 0% greek yogurt mixed with Stevia), chopped walnuts, or nut butters (I like almond butter!) 


Get creative!

Breakfast- Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

The smell of cinnamon is intoxicating! It makes your whole house feel warm and cozy! I was craving a little comfort food this morning so instead of plain old oatmeal, I made Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal.

Chop Apples (I prefer Granny Smith! Here I just used 1 HUGE apple)
Put in Saucepan on Medium Heat
Add Cinnamon (I just throw it in there)
Heat apples, stirring occasionally. Mix in 1/2 C Almond Milk.
When apples are soft, add in 2 C Oatmeal

**Optional- if you need yours a little sweeter, add in Stevia or Truvia. I like the plain apple cinnamon taste**


Serve with Eggs!

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 35 mins
Total time: 45 mins
Serves: 6
Adapted from the lovely cookbook, Super Natural Every Day, written by Heidi Swanson, this is perfect when serving a crowd for breakfast. You can bake this the night before and reheat in the morning for an easy and impressive breakfast. Replace strawberries with blueberries or other berry. If you do not have Chinese five spice, you can simply substitute with 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, the flavor will be slightly different, but still delicious.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled, 1/2-inch slices
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and generously spray the inside of a 10-1/2 by 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, orange zest, Chinese five spice, salt, half the walnuts, half the strawberries and half the chocolate. (Save the other half of strawberries, walnuts and chocolate for the top of the oatmeal). In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the oat mixture to prepared baking dish. Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts and chocolate on top. Add the banana slices to the top then pour the milk mixture over everything. Gently shimmy/shake the baking dish to help the milk mixture go throughout the oats.
  4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the milk mixture has set. For an extra tasty top, sprinkle a tablespoon or so of extra brown sugar on top then place back in the oven under the broiler and broil for 20-30 seconds. Serve warm with an extra sprinkle of sugar or drizzle of maple syrup.
