Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

I recently happened to fall on a recipe for Oatmeal Protein Pancakes on the Net. I didn’t keep the link, but it was extremely easy to memorize, so I decided to give them a try this morning.

Well, I am sold. The texture is good and moist, with a little bit of a crunch coming from the oatmeal. The taste is really good too. I added some cinnamon to mine (I love cinnamon, so I tend to add it to just about anything I can!) and I think that really helped give a sense of sweetness to the pancakes.

It’s one of those meals that is hard to believe is so good for you really.

Here’s the (extremely easy) recipe:

  • ½ cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup 1% Cottage Cheese
  • ½ cup Egg Whites
  • ¼ tsp Baking Powder (optional)
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon (optional)

Just mix all the ingredients together in a blender until nice and smooth (a Magic Bullet works wonders*) and cook in a preheated skillet coated with cooking spray for about 2 minutes per side.

Serve with loads of fresh fruits and a drizzle of honey

I chose to make only one big pancake, but you could easily make 2 smaller pancakes.

*I really owe my daughter an apology for ever criticizing her Magic Bullet when she first brought this into our home. Back then, I had told her that it was nothing but a waste of valuable space. Well, I guess I have to eat my words now, as I would be the one using it all the time, like several times a week…

        Hm, maybe :] I think it’s because the first (& last) time I had cottage cheese, it was from my grandmother. My grandmother doesn’t know exactly WHERE to put food in her little apartment, so she kept the cottage cheese in the freezer (she kept tuna cans in the fridge until I told her that it’s completely fine to keep them in a cupboard but she was still skeptical :\) so I’ll give it another chance one of these days!

    Hello again! Are there any alternatives to egg whites? I prefer using whole eggs or apple sauce :)
