Protein-packed pancakes with oats and blueberries to give you lasting energy throughout the morning. Great post-workout!
It’s almost noon and I’m not starving. As a nursing mama who exercises regularly, my life pretty much revolves around my next meal. Today’s recipe is my latest attempt at creating a protein-packed breakfast that gets my metabolism running but doesn’t leave me empty in a matter of hours. We are now 3 hours and counting so I would say, mission accomplished!
Even more thrilling? My husband said these pancakes were the best part of his weekend.
Your fork is waiting.
Protein-packed pancakes with oats and blueberries to give you lasting energy throughout the morning.
In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash bananas with vanilla, egg whites and milk.
Stir in oats, protein powder, baking powder, flax, wheat germ, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves.
Pre-heat a skillet over medium heat and coat with oil.
Pour batter 1/4 c at a time to form pancakes.
Sprinkle pancakes with blueberries before flipping. The cakes are ready to turn when bubbles form.
Once flipped, cook for an additional 2 minutes on the 2nd side or until browned.
Tip:Generally, I turn the heat to low so as not to burn. Sometimes I forget. They still taste good. 🙂 Good Source of Iron and Calcium
