If you feel the same way, I think you might want to give today’s breakfast recipe a try!
This recipe comes to you from my friend Caitlin who first told me about this recipe and promised me it tasted like a protein pancake. I was skeptical at first since the recipe is pretty basic and seems almost more like a sweet omelet than a protein pancake, but after one attempt, I was sold.
It sounds really funky, but if you like protein pancakes or if you’re looking for a protein pancake recipe that doesn’t incorporate dairy or protein powder, I encourage you to give it a go! I’ve tried it with family and friends and it gets rave reviews from everyone.
Egg White and Oatmeal Protein Pancake
- 1 cup egg whites
- ⅓ cup oats
- 1 packet stevia or 2 teaspoons sugar or a couple of drops of liquid stevia (<- my preference)
- Cinnamon to taste (I use a lot of cinnamon!)
- Spray pan with cooking spray and heat over a medium high heat
- Stir all ingredients together until adequately combined and pour into pan
- When the pancake begins to turn white and the edges of the pancake begin to harden, flip and cook for another one to two minutes
- Top with syrup, nut butter, fresh fruit or slivered almonds and enjoy
Sometimes my pancake comes out looking more like scrambled eggs than a pancake, so don’t worry if that happens to you, too! The taste is still the same.
I like to eat my protein pancake after my morning workout (try this cardio arms workout — it’s a good one!).
Do you like protein pancakes? What is your favorite way to make them?
