Banana Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

I love pancakes!  But gone are the days of making them with white flour with some chocolate chips thrown in (unless of course it's time for a good cheat meal).  But on any normal, given day I just prefer to make them with oats and pack them full of protein.  They serve as a great pre or post workout meal and they are SO GOOD!!  I almost feel guilty eating them because they are that good. Recently, I made just a few minor changes to one of my favorite protein pancake recipes and came up with the following.  I enjoyed these for breakfast today while my kids enjoyed their special chocolate chip pancakes.  Everybody won.


1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 TBSP flax seed

Heat pan or griddle to a low-medium heat and spray with cooking spray
place the oats into the food processor and blend for approximately 30 seconds. Place the rest of the ingredients into the food processor with the ground oats and and process away to a "batter like" consistency.
Pour batter onto griddle and cook for approximately two minutes per side

Makes 6 pancakes.

I topped mine with sliced strawberries, bananas and blueberries and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.

Breakfast is served!!!

In Good Health,
