If you truly know me, you know that I LOVE BREAKFAST FOOD. Bacon, pastries, pancakes, waffles, juices, eggs. Any and all of the above. Thankfully after I had surgery I only had to give up some of the stuff I’d be eating. I generally stay away from pastries and juice, but eat a lot of eggs. I will still eat bacon, just not a lot since the fat often makes me sick.
As for pancakes and waffles, I have switched to mainly protein pancakes and waffles. Super easy to make if you don’t have a protein pancake mix (I like Flapjacked). The texture will be a little different than a traditional pancake, which might put a few people off, but it doesn’t bother me too much. They’re just a little less fluffy. I also like this recipe because it’s a base – add fruit, chocolate chips, whatever you want!
So, whip up a batch for breakfast! Or dinner. Or any time, really, because who needs an excuse to eat breakfast?
- ¼ cup oats
- ¼ cup cottage cheese
- ½ scoop protein powder
- ½ cup egg whites
- Mix all ingredients together (I do this in the blender for a better consistency).
- Pour over a hot griddle that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
- When the edges start to brown, flip over.
- Serve with your choice of topping (I’m simple – real maple syrup and a little cinnamon!).
Makes about 4 small pancakes or 2 large ones.
