Biggest Loser Pancakes Recipe

Good Morning!

Today I'm kicking off Food Week!  I'm sharing some of my favorite recipes from Pinterest and from my family... so lets get hungry started!

I've been looking for a healthier pancake for me and Lil' A and I think I've finally found one that we BOTH liked!  Trust me, this hasn't been the easier journey!  I've been trying to use more whole foods and less processed foods/ingredients so the few pancakes recipes I've made with this in mind. 

Biggest Loser Pancakes

6 egg whites
1 cup rolled oats, dry
1 cup cottage cheese
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla


In a blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. Heat a griddle or large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. For each pancake pour 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle. Flip when they start to bubble. Cook until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batches, spraying the griddle as needed. Makes about 10 pancakes.

Number of Servings: 3

My favorite things about this recipe are:
Cottage Cheese and Egg White - I felt like Adam and I were both getting a good amount of protein with this delicious guys
Rolled Oats  - I think my heart smiled with this recipe!
Now, I'm not a huge fan of using my blending/food processor just because I'm lazy and try to avoid extra hand washing, but it was worth it for these guys!
They tasted like french toast, had a similar consistency but were a little more gooey in texture.  I thought this might detour Lil' A but we each ate our whole serving (I used sugar free syrup, Lil' A had maple syrup) and I was content until lunch time. 
So yummy!
I highly recommend these pancakes - if you give them a try, let me know what you think!
Have a great day!
