SO DELICIOUS, these were made possible by the addition of my new favourite ingredient vitafiber, which BY THE WAY I am very excited to say is now available on Amazon! I am not being paid to say this..I honestly … Continue reading
Hey Guys! Here is an easy recipe that only takes minutes to prepare with a few simple ingredients. These pancakes are delicious and are packed with protein. I hope you like them as much as I do!
Serves 1, about 3 medium pancakes(feel free to double the recipe!)
1/4 cup Old Fashioned(Not instant/quick cooking) oats
1/4 cup cottage cheese(any percentage, I prefer to use 2%!)
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Directions: In a blender or food processor combine everything expect the blueberries until smooth(don’t worry if a there are a few grainy bits of oats, they won’t change the texture of the pancakes). Spray a pan with cooking oil and heat over medium-low heat. Drop a scoopful of batter into the hot pan. (I like to shake the pan a little to spread the batter since it’s quite thick). Add a few blueberries and cook for several minutes until the batter bubbles and the underneath is browned nicely, flip and repeat on the other side. The key to these pancakes is to cook them low and slow so the middle cooks through without burning the outside. Once finished, place on a plate and top with whatever you’d like! I used some sugar-free syrup but you could also use smashed fruit and a little sweetener heated in the microwave, light whip cream or even almond butter! Just be creative and dig in!
**NOTE** These pancakes will take longer to cook then regular pancakes so don’t flip them too early!
Happy almost Easter Everyone! I hope you all are excited for the long weekend. What are your plans? For me Easter is always spent with my grandparents at their farm. I love it there and I get to see all my cousins, aunts and uncles as well. It’s a long drive to get there and we are leaving super early tomorrow (yes I know I should get to bed). So instead of going to bed on time I of course decided to create a breakfast that I could just eat on the road tomorrow, already pre-made. But what I wanted was for my breakfast to include some kind of veggie but be sweet and delicious at the same time..and thus, the Green Monster Breakfast Bars were born. Sorry, no hiding the vegetables in these. The pops of green spinach stick out all throughout these tasty bars. But have no fear, the taste is one thing that is hidden! The ripe banana takes over and lightly sweetens the bar. It also keeps them chewy and moist.
These bars are an entire nutritious meal in one and are amazing for on the go or if you want a fast simple breakfast. They are also very filling and packed with protein! (15g to be exact). If your morning needs a boost try these awesome Green Monster Breakfast Bars. Take me to the recipe!
These were so good! They only require a few very simple ingredients and about 1-2hours of freezing then your ready to go. You could also sub any nut butter for the almond butter(I personally used peanut butter for this one but I know it’s not Paleo!) for different kinds of fudge! Take me to the recipe!
