Sweet Vanilla Protein Pancakes

You gotta love when pancakes come out the exact texture you’re hoping for. Even I am skeptical of how perfect this texture came out. I probably could’ve made 4 pancakes instead of 3 if I didn’t lick all the batter. Whoops. I don’t regret it. :D

Serves: 1

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12-15 drops vanilla creme SweetLeaf stevia (or regular stevia)

Grind the oats into a flour. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until everything is evenly mixed. Spray a pan with nonstick spray and cook your cakeys on a medium heat for 5-6 minutes, flip, and cook another 2-3 minutes! BLISSSSS.

I topped mine with cherries, blackberries, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a splash of sugar free syrup.

    This recipe sounds amazing!
    I was just wondering about stevia. It seems to be used quite often as a substitute for sugar but there is a bit of negative information on the Internet about its use. What are your views on this?

      Check out my post called “why I use stevia.” The brand I use is very good – sweetleaf stevia. They do not treat the product with any chemicals or extra processing during the extraction process. Their product is pure stevia and another natural plant fiber and that’s it.

    This looks perfect for a post-workout meal! Btw, do u think i can substitute FF Greek yogurt for cottage cheese? Im out of my favorite brand cottage cheese(no salt one)… Will greek yogurt make the pancakes gummy??

    • KimNo Gravatar says:

      Yeah you can! It will work too; it won’t make it quite as fluffy as cottage cheese does but it’s a perfect replacement!

    So grateful I stumbled across your instagram, I absolutely love this site. Question, would applesauce be a comparable substitute for the cottage cheese? Or do you think the cottage cheese is a pretty important ingredient to achieve the fluffyness?

    I’ve made these before and they were amazing! I was just wondering can I add coconut flour to it and if so about how much? And should I omit the cottage cheese then?

    How much oat flour does it make when it’s grinded up? I don’t have a food processor but I have oat flour that I bought from the store!
