Aunt Evie's Protein Pancakes

My two older boys are THE pickiest eaters.  One of the few foods that they like are pancakes. Really, who doesn't like pancakes (besides my husband)?  Well, I was so happy when my Aunt Evie shared this recipe with me for healthy protein pancakes.  These are not fluffy melt in your mouth kind of pancakes, they are much denser and much more filling.  We love them at our house and this recipe is one of our staples (I make them at least twice a week).  They are really quite healthy and I actually feel good inside when my boys gobble them up; they're happy, I'm happy.
Now, the recipe:
Ingredients: 1 cup oats, 1 cup cottage cheese (yes, I use fat free), and 6 egg whites  (lots of times when I'm just making them for my kids I will use 3 whole eggs)
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until totally smooth



Cook 'em up and serve.  (I heat my griddle to 350)


Now if I was a professional food photographer or blogger I would have remembered to take a picture of them beautifully displayed.  Unfortunately, my boys are sitting "patiently" waiting for me to serve them- no time for beautiful pics.

For a fun variation and some healthy benefits, I sometimes throw a banana in the blender and a handful of frozen blueberries.  Yummy!!  Also if your batter gets a little too thick, just add a splash of skim milk.

Enjoy!

Those sound really good, and healthy! You could also top the pancakes with peanut butter before the syrup for added protein.

These are great. I don't think I ever replied when you sent me this recipe. Sorry, they really are quite wonderful and are great for keeping a level blood sugar :)
