Blueberry Protein Pancakes

At my house, Saturday mornings call for pancakes on the back patio. While I am always in for an indulgent treat, why not make a pancake that’s packed with protein and fiber compared to the traditional flapjack? It’s filling, nutritious, and always satisfies my pancake craving. The best part? It only takes 7 minutes to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 Cup Egg Whites
  • 1/3 Cup Oats
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • 1 TSP Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 Cup Fresh Blueberries
  • Almond Butter
  • Maple Syrup

DIRECTIONS

  1. Blend egg whites, oats, cinnamon, and vanilla extract for 15 seconds.
  2. Pour mixture into a greased, small saucepan. Mixture should cover ensure surface of the pan. Because it is mostly liquid, avoid using too large of a pan. Cook on medium.
  3. Evenly place blueberries in mixture.
  4. When liquid on the surface is hardening, flip pancake and cook for 30-60 seconds.
  5. Finish with your choice of toppings--almond butter, maple syrup, agave, or fresh fruit!
