Earlier this week, I looked outside and was sad to see that it looked like this:
Little did I know, that only a few short days later it would look like this:
What?!?! #Minnesota in mid-April #WTH
There is a silver lining though. While the weather gets worse, my protein powder pancakes recipe is getting better! A few days ago I posted about these protein pancakes made with rolled oats. They were good, but I wanted to keep experimenting. Today, I tried basically the same recipe but with oat bran instead of regular rolled oats.
First, mix 1/3 cup oat bran with 1 teaspoon ground flax:
Add one egg and 1/3 cup cottage cheese:
Add one scoop protein powder (I used Tera’s Whey chocolate):
Mix all together:
Cook on the skillet for about 3 minutes on each side:
I am getting so much better at flipping the pancakes! I think that was partly because the oat bran held these pancakes together better than the rolled oats did. I topped my pancakes with walnut butter and a couple teaspoons maple syrup:
These were very good, but I definitely want to experiment more with other pancake varieties. Anyone know some yummy, quick, and healthy pancake recipes?
