As I mentioned in the last blog post, I am on the continual hunt for protein. Carbs are everywhere. Fat is everywhere! But protein?
Protein takes effort.
That's why I was very happy to discover this recipe for low-carb protein pancakes from diabetesstrong.com, This recipe is quick and easy, and only contains a few ingredients!
Here's what you need for 1 serving:
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
2 egg whites (you can also use 2 whole eggs, which is what I do)
1/4 cup oats
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs Stevia (I don't particularly care for the taste of Stevia, so I use 1/4 tsp agave instead. But you do you).
1. Pour the ingredients in the order listed into a blender.
2. Blend until smooth
3. Spray a pan with a little cooking spray
4. Add batter to the pan and cook jus like you would any other pancake. This should make 2 large pancakes or 3 smaller pancakes.
For an added protein boost, add a scoop or two of collagen powder to the batter!
When cooked as above, you get 372 calories. If you're counting macros, that's 24.3 grams of carbs, 12.3 grams of fat, and a whopping 58.1 grams of protein goodness!
I like to eat them with fresh sliced peaches or strawberries. What's your go to protein recipe?
