Better fitness is one of my goals for the new year, so I was excited to find this yummy recipe in Shape Magazine for low-cal, high protein, whole grain pancakes. I think it’s a great way to use oats from food storage! No need to grind the oats into flour. Just use a blender or food processor to combine ingredients below. (I used a Magic Bullet) Then cook batter like pancakes for 2 minutes per side. These are great served with fresh fruit and a drizzle of agave nectar (I like Xagave brand)! They taste a little bit like French toast.
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/2 cup egg whites (you could easily use powdered egg whites in this recipe)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon
