Protein Pancakes


1/4 cup quick oats/instant oats (this part is not really that important.)

1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese

2 egg whites (or approx 1/4-1/3 cup egg white from carton)

1/2 scoop protein powder  (you can use a full scoop but factor that into nutrition info) I have used peanut chocolate, and vanilla.  I LOVE vanilla.


Preheat griddle or frying pan with a touch of cooking spray (Low heat works best)

Mix and mush all ingredients

Pour into 1-2 pancakes

Flip when starts to bubble

*I find it better to flip them sooner than later, you can always reflip, but if they get too dark they get very hard!

The nutritional breakdown is for this particular recipe without any toppings.  You can top with a light syrup for a few extra carbs.  My most favourite topping has become “Nuts & More” Chocolate peanut butter spread.  It spreads easily onto warm pancakes and tastes FANTASTIC.

  1. I have tried adding egg whites to my pancakes instead of whole eggs, bit I have never added cottage cheese. Does it make them more moist? I’m sure it adds some good protein as well. These would be great for my husband before his long runs. Thanks for posting!

    • Cottage cheese I recently learned is always a moistener. I love these pancakes. I dont’ remember how i used to make them back in school but they always kind of felt… heavy.. these ones, are packed with protein but seem to still have a lighter fluffy taste. I’m sure my Diesel protein helps as well… its fabulous. 🙂 I will be posting a banana bread recipe soon as well!. I recommend checking out protein pow- the girl I referenced for the brownies. lots of great stuff there too!
