Protein Power Pancakes
IMG_9412
Lately my breakfast menu is a lot of granola, fruit, eggs, oatmeal etc… On Foodnetwork’s ‘The Kitchen” I saw Katie Lee make a really interesting pancake of sorts. When I saw it I thought it was genius because you pack cottage cheese, oatmeal and eggs into a pancake of sorts.

Now if you are a really big pancake fanatic this isn’t a fluffy buttery pancake. In fact the flavor is average but it’s the vehicle that makes it. Katie folded in some sweet potato but I went as is.

Ingredients:
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup oatmeal
2 eggs
1 tbs of sour cream
vanilla extract
smidge of cinnamon

Maple Syrup

Directions:
1. Pour the ingredients in a blender until smooth. If you need to loosen it up you can add a little milk. As mentioned, you can add pureed pumpkin, sweet potato or anything else you want.

2. In a heated skillet with butter or coconut oil pour the batter and cook until browned. These are sturdier pancakes so can take a little more heat and time than your typical cake. I thought they turned out well and best of all it was a total change up for breakfast and a great way to get protein and fiber.
