Happy Tuesday beauties! Since I've transitioned to a cleaner healthier diet, I have been trying out a ton of new recipes. If you don't know, I actually really enjoy cooking. I enjoy cooking everything except breakfast ha-ha. But today I really wanted pancakes, and I knew I couldn't go to Ihop and get some! So that left me with the option to starve (which wasn't going to happen) or make them! I found a fat blasting pancake recipe,and I remixed it of course as I do with any recipe I find. Ok, enough talking - here's how I made these delicious low calorie, fat blasting pancakes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
What you'll need...
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
2 egg whites
1 tspn vanilla extract
1 cup strawberries
3 tbsp non fat vanilla greek yogurt
Coconut oil cooking spray
1/2 tspn chia seeds
Pinch of cinnamon
Handfull of your favorite berries (for topping - you can use strawberries if you like. I used raspberries)
How you make them...
1. Combine oats, cottage cheese, egg whites, vanilla, banana and 2 tbsp of Greek yogurt into food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Slowly stir in strawberries.
2. Heat a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Coat with Coconut spray. Spoon about 2 tbsp of batter per pancake into pan. Cook 3 minutes, or until tops are filled with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully flip pancake over, cook until golden brown.
3. Top pancakes with remaining Greek yogurt, chia seeds, berries and cinnamon.
SOUND OFF! What are your favorite healthy things to eat for breakfast? If you decide to make these please let me know. I'd love to know what you thought of them.
