Protein Pancakes

Oatmeal vanilla pancakes are paired with fresh, ripe strawberries and sweet maple syrup

Serves 2

320 Calories per serving


1 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (or low-fat cottage cheese)

6 egg whites

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup sliced strawberries (or 1 cup any preferred fruit)

2 tsp. maple syrup (or honey or coconut nectar)

Cooking instructions:

1. Combine the oats, yogurt, egg whites, and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth.

2. Coat a wide skillet with oil spray and heat over medium heat.

3. Pour the batter on to the skillet in 1/4-cup scoops. Cook the pancakes until the edges are dry and tiny bubbles form on top, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook for about 2 minutes on the second side. Repeat until all of the batter has been used.

4. Divide pancakes between 2 plates (or freeze half of the pancakes for another meal). Top each plate with 1/2 cup strawberries and 1 teaspoon maple syrup
