Apple Cinnamon Protein Pancakes

26 Jul

A different twist on your boring bowl of oatmeal in the morning. These pancakes are not only healthy but easy to make and with 18 grams protein, they keep hunger at bay until lunch.

 

Serves 1

Ingredients

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1 container natural unsweetened applesauce (with a toddler we have these on hand but it’s a little less than 1/2 a cup if using a applesauce in the jar.)

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese or 1 scoop protein powder

1 whole egg (or 2 egg whites)

 

Directions

1) Combine all the ingredients in a blender until you have a smooth consistency. Spoon onto a hot skillet or griddle.  I sprayed mine with a bit of cooking spray.

2) Cook 2 minutes or until edges firm up then flip and cook another 2 minutes. 

 

Note: I find that four smallish size pancakes come out the best. Larger ones burn before the inside cooks through. 

Enjoy with a bit of maple syrup, agave nectar, yogurt or whatever your heart desires on top!
