The Fit Beast Feasts: Protein Pancakes

I don't know what it is lately, but I have been craving pancakes.  A lot!  I've shared my go-to recipe before, but sometimes it just needs to be republished!!!

In a blender....a really good blender....chop or puree 1 cup of old fashioned oats.  You want it to get blended so fine just like flour.  In fact, that's what you're making.  Oat flour!  You can make bigger batches of this and store if for other baking needs!!!  Anyway, back to the recipe.  Once your oats are really finely blended, add 1 scoop of protein powder (any flavor will do, but I prefer the Cinnamon Swirl Whey from Cellucor), 1 cup of low fat cottage cheese, 1 cup of egg whites, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.  Blend until a batter consistency is reached.  Easy, right?

The macros are even better!!  The entire batter mixture is 700 calories, 7.5 grams of fat, 61 grams of carbs, and 91 grams of protein.  Just divide it by the number of pancakes you make to get your own breakdown.

Try out other fun protein powder combinations.  Try chocolate with sliced strawberries.  Cake batter with some whipped cream and sprinkles for a birthday breakfast.  Strawberry pancakes with a slather of peanut butter.  Have fun and eat clean!!
