What if I told you could eat pancakes everyday for breakfast and lose weight? I feel like I’m cheating whenever I make my protein power pancakes . My philosophy is all about eating what you love , but just modifying recipes so they are healthy and low fat . Please enjoy my favorite breakfast recipe below . Its quick , easy and delicious, and packed with protein to feed those muscles and give you energy .
Lisa’s protein power pancakes
1/2 cup of whole grain uncooked oats
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
4 large egg whites
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp of sugar substitute

Sugar-free maple syrup or honey.
optional: fresh fruit
Blend all the ingredients except the maple syrup together until smooth.
Lightly spray and heat non stick pan. Use medium heat.
Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan to form a pancake .
flip over after about 2 minutes or until you see bubbling
repeat the last step until golden brown
Pour sugar free syrup and fruit to taste and enjoy!
Tip: for added protein add a scoop of vanilla or flavorless protein powder to the mix ! Or a small amount of peanut butter as a topping
