Protein Pancakes for a Healthy Breakfast

Protein Pancakes for a Healthy Breakfast

“Let’s get it started,  ha! Let’s get in started in here. Let’s get it started…” ~Black Eyed Peas

Protein pancakes make it worth getting up in the mornings. These little weight loss breakfast goodies break the plus 30 gram protein mark (possibly even 40 grams) and are my fave!

The recipe? Since I’m not really good in the kitchen I tend to improvise a bit here and there. But the basics are:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (sometimes I put more for extra fluffiness)
  • 1/4 to 1/3rd scoop vanilla protein powder (I use egg protein powder since I can’t digest whey or soy)
  • 1 packet Stevia
  • 1/3 cup pure egg whites (I buy the kind with only egg whites – no other ingredients)

Throw together in blender (I use my old Magic Bullet – works fabulously).

Let sit to thicken a bit while you heat griddle, then cook ’em up (sometimes I make several small ones, sometimes one bigger one).

Add a thin layer of peanut butter, a few spoonfuls of cottage cheese and some berries. And you, my friend, now have a healthy, substantial breakfast filled with protein and fiber. If you’re about to head out to exercise and have a craving for sweets, you can add just a very few 70% or above chocolate chips to satisfy your chocolate tooth.

(If you’re pressed for time you can prepare all the dry ingredients the evening before and just add the egg whites and cook in the a.m.. Or use less baking powder and make a thin “roll up” pancake that you can eat in the car. Want more? Sign up for my free newsletter – where weight loss is made to fit into your busy life.)

Enjoy! And onward.

Which egg white protein do you use? I’m the same whey (hehe) with other proteins. I’m currently using pumpkin seed protein powder, which has a pretty stellar calorie to protein ratio for a nut powder. I’ve been looking in to egg white proteins recently, I’ve heard Jay Robb’s are good, but that’s about it.
