I know, I know. They look... weird. But don't be put off by weird looking food. These are actually delicious and freaking good for you. Kind of hard to beat that combination, isn't it?

I started making these a few months ago, and they have become a comfort staple. Sometimes, I just want to eat a plate of pancakes. But I don't want to feel like I just gained ten pounds in doing so. Here's your solution :)

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Protein Green Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 handfulls rinsed spinach
  • pinch of salt
  • (Optional): 1/4 tsp baking powder

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender and mix well.
  2. Heat a greased pan over medium-high heat. Pour pancake batter into the pan and watch until it starts to bubble (~2 min). Start trying to flip it over and do so gently, using two utensils if needed. Repeat process until batter is gone.
  3. Top pancakes with delicious toppings! I've tried maple syrup, sugar-free syrup, peanut butter, greek yogurt, fresh fruit, sunflower seeds... the list goes on and on!

  1. These look good actually! I made a protein pancake from the Fitnessista website this morning and it was so dry I couldn't even eat it. These look much more moist and still protein packed. Thanks for the recipe!
