This high protein low fat pancake makes a perfect breakfast. This pancake is also great for a healthy high carb day.
If you like pancakes you will love this recipe. It is fun and simple to make. You can also get creative and change up the recipe to fit your nutritional needs.
Normally I swear by the ‘Magic Bullet,’ but all of these ingredients won’t fit in it; so I have to get out the old blender. After I pull out the blender, I pour ¾ cup almond milk into it. Then I crack and add 4 large egg whites to the mixture.
Next I dump in 1 cup of old fashioned oatmeal, and I add 1 scoop of my favorite vanilla protein powder to the blender. For a little extra flavor, I like to add ¾ tsp of cinnamon to the mix.
Then I blend all of the ingredients together in the blender. I find blending it gives the oatmeal a nice smooth texture. I pour the blended mixture into an omelet size non-stick pan and cook it on medium to high heat.
When it is golden brown and the edges are firm, I slip it out of the pan onto a big glass plate and then back into the pan to cook the other side. When the bottom no longer sticks to the pan, I slide it back out on to my plate.
Finally I simply add 1 cup of fresh blueberries on top of the pancake while it is still warm. Any fruit you like works great. For the recipe’s macronutrient profile below, I included the blueberries.
