Chocolate Protein Pancakes
(I like to double this recipe and freeze a bunch for later!)
- 3 Egg Whites
- 1/3 cup Lite/Fat Free Cottage Cheese
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Unsweetened Almond Milk**
- 1/3 cup Oats (make it a heaping 1/3 cup)
- 1 tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
- 1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (~1/3 cup)
- 2 tablespoons Cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
**You may need to add more liquid depending on the kind of protein powder you use. If your batter is too thick, just add more liquid until the batter is pourable and the desired consistency is reached.**
Blend egg whites, cottage cheese and almond milk in the blender.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Place mixture in the fridge while griddle is heating up (about 3 minutes.)
Pour batter by heaping 1/4 C. onto heated griddle.
Cook for 1-2 minutes until set on one side. Flip and cook the other side until done!
Makes about 5 pancakes.

I love to top these with almond butter, fruit (berries and/or bananas) and a little drizzle of agave nectar. If I’m trying to watch my carbs, I just top it with almond butter and a little sugar-free syrup.
I hope you love these as much as I do!
