Protein-Packed Preworkout Pancake Recipe

Ready in: 15 minutes

Makes: 1 serving

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 egg whites*
  • 1⁄3 cup low-fat, low-sodium cottage cheese

*Preferably from fresh eggs, not a carton, as it changes the consistency.

Optional Toppings:

  • Sugar-free maple syrup
  • Blueberries
  • Walnuts

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. If batter is still thick, add another egg white. Refrigerate batter for 3 minutes while heating a pan over medium heat.
  2. Pour a third of the batter into pan. When it starts to bubble gently flip and cook other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
