Protein Pancakes
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 scoop (28g) Protein Powder (I like Designer Whey blend - in either chocolate or vanilla)
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • ½ tsp.cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. measure-for-measure sweetener, like Splenda baking blend or Truvia (optional) (or ½ tsp. sugar)
  • butter or coconut oil, for cooking
  • butter and syrup, for eating
  1. In a blender, combine the eggs, protein powder, almond meal, cottage cheese, cinnamon and sweetener. Blend until totally smooth.
  2. Heat a griddle to medium heat and brush with melted butter or coconut oil. Portion out about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Wait until the pancakes are bubbly and slightly dry at the edges, then flip (after the first few, you'll get a sense of the timing). Serve hot, with butter and/or maple syrup and/or honey (or, if you are two, with frosting.)
You can substitute 4 oz. cream cheese for the cottage cheese.
These can also be frozen and reheated in the toaster oven for weekday breakfasts.
This will make about 20 pancakes, give or take.
