Protein Pancakes

If you haven't tried 'em, you gotta try 'em! They are smoking hot good! I didn't get a picture, I was too busy eating them. I made 3 good size ones and topped them with a little lite syrup and they were delish for 7 points. Here is the recipe I got it from

as seen on Preventionrd 

Servings - 1   Serving size - four 6" pancakes or 3 bigger ones   Points Plus per svg - 7 points+
Calories - 280,   Total Fat - 3g,   Carb. - 32.8g,   Protein - 30g,   Fiber - 4g

1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/2 cup egg beaters
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
dash of salt
water ( optional )

1.  Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor ( I think next time I will use my magic bullet!) and process until smooth and combined.  About 30 seconds to 1 minutes.  If batter seems too thick to you, add a bit of water to loosen. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. 
2.  Heat med nonstick skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray on med-high heat.  Add batter, about a 1/4 cup at at time ( for the smaller cakes, a bit more for bigger cakes) and spread evenly with a spoon.  When bubbles form on top and the edges start to get dry, flip and cook other side.  Repeat with the rest of batter. 

Well, I have managed to drop 1 lb in the past month and I am not going to gripe about it after the struggle to just lose that pound. I don't think I realized how hard it was going to be to pull this weight off, or yet maybe I did and that is why I have put the effort off for so long. More later...


  1. congrats on the loss! glad you liked the pancakes! they are soo good, aren't they?

  2. thanks for also putting the calorie count for these! i count calories, not points! i may have to give these a shot.
