Protein Pancakes

{Protein Power Pancakes*}

I’ve been specially careful of my food choices during these past couple months working up to the big day.  In the process, I’ve made some really amazing food and recipe discoveries that I’ve decided are too good to keep to myself.

You’ll find there are many different variations of these pancakes online. However, this is the one that’s worked best for me. Think of it as a plain, blank canvas and feel free to experiment: add berries, bananas, switch up the toppings!

After discovering these, I doubt I’ll ever make regular pancakes again.

Ingredients (makes 3 medium-sized thin pancakes)

4 egg whites
1 packet of lower-sugar instant oatmeal in the flavor of your choice (I recommend any of these)  *If you don’t have instant, use 1/2 cup of the regular unflavored kind and add 1 tbsp of vanilla extract + 1 packet of stevia/splenda

Instructions

Preheat a non-stick pan on medium heat.  Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If you would like to have thinner more crepe-like pancakes, then add 2 tablespoons of water to the mixture.

Once blended, pour mix directly to the pan to form the size of your preference.  As soon as tiny bubbles start to form, or as soon as the borders looked cooked (about 30-45 seconds), flip the pancake over and cook for 15 more seconds.

Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
