Skinny Strawberry Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes

pancake w strawberriesEarly this week while sipping my morning coffee, I had a craving for something sweet…..Pancakes to be precise. After reviewing several recipes online I came up with oatmeal cottage pancakes. The combo may sound a bit odd but they were absolutely delicious, and of course nutritious. Regular pancakes are low in nutrients, high in fat, and loaded with sugar/carbohydrates!

 These pancakes are easy to make, and HIGH in protein. In fact- you get as much protein as you would from chicken breast. The base of the recipe is oats & cottage cheese!

 

*WHEAT FREE, VEGETARIAN, HIGH PROTEIN, HIGH IN FIBER

Why i  these pancakes:

Cottage cheese → high in protein

Oats →high in fiber, promotes weight loss & a healthy bowel

Egg Whites→ high in protein

Strawberries→ full of antioxidants & phytonutrients

      Thanks Laura! If using yogurt, try using 1 full banana (instead of 1/2) so they do not get too runny. Let me know! xx
