My friend, Heather, is a freakin' fit goddess. No joke. She is strong, tough, built, a bloody brickhouse, and on top of that she knows nutrition. I love when she shares recipes that we can all incorporate into our lives to eat like a normal person, but still be healthier.
Heather's Protein Pancakes
4 egg whites
1/3 c rolled oats
2 TBSP cottage cheese OR Plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a blender add all ingredients and blend until smooth. Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet to medium heat and melt 1 tsp of coconut oil onto it. Pour about 2 TBSP of batter and cook until bubbles form ontop and then flip, about 2 minutes a side. Yields about 6 pancakes
TIP: Want chocolate pancakes? Add 1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder.
Fresh Fruit Syrup
1 cup of berries of your choice (I used a mix of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries)
Juice of half a lemon
In a blender or food processor, blend all ingredients together til a syrup consistency. If you want it thinner, add water a little at a time. Serve over pancakes.
