Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Pancakes

Time to celebrate having a day off withhhh.. pancakes! I made strawberry cheesecake protein pancakes topped with a “cheesecake” whip , a healthy chocolate drizzle, strawberries, and strawberry cheesecake quest bar pieces. So dang good; that “cheesecake” whip is most definitely the winner here.

Serves: 1

  • 1/2 cup raw old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 scoop strawberry cheesecake whey protein (from truenutrition.com, or vanilla)
  • 1/4 tsp imitation butter extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stevia packet
  • 1/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 Strawberry Cheesecake Quest Bar

First grind the oats into a flour. Then add the whey protein, butter extract, baking powder, stevia, cottage cheese, and egg whites. Blend again. Then break apart the quest bar and swirl it into the batter. Spray a pan with nonstick spray and pour some batter in. Cook over a low/medium heat for 2-3 minutes, flip, and cook another 1-2 minutes. Repeat to make 4-5 pancakes.

To make the “cheesecake” whip, use a handblender to blend 1/3 cup lowfat cottage cheese, 1 TBSP vanilla whey protein, 1⁄2 TBSP coconut flour, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, and 1 stevia packet.

For the healthy chocolate drizzle mix 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 TBSP unsweetened almond milk, and 1-2 stevia packets.

      Some recipes I have calories listed for them, some recipes I don’t. This one is about 320 calories for everything listed (including the bar). You don’t have to use the bar in the recipe, but it adds nice pockets of flavor inside of the batter. It’s similar to say, if you added bits of fruit like blueberries you know? Except it’s the bar – the bar gets slightly melty and adds a lot of flavor. But again, it’s not required! I just use 1/4 of the bar so it’s about 45 calories. If you don’t use the bar, the recipe is about 270 calories.
