prep and cook time: Approximately 10-12 minutes
4 oz water
3/4 cup egg whites (I used Market Pantry Egg Whites in the carton)
1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Market Pantry Vanilla Whey Protein from Target)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp natural peanut butter (or any other nut butter that you prefer)
1 cup of fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
Preheat a nonstick skillet to medium high heat and add a tsp of extra virgin olive oil, or spray with a little non stick spray.
Remove from pan and let cool for a few seconds. Spread peanut butter over the pancake and fill with fresh berries and fold over. Dust with a little extra cinnamon.
I am actually quite addicted to this for breakfast. It’s delicious and very nutritious after a workout.
My husband and I share this in the morning. I just cut in half…or more like 1/3 and 2/3. He says I over-feed him a bit. 😉
You could make two smaller ones, eat one now and one later; or cook several small ones on a griddle.A great variation of this is to add a cup of fresh spinach to the pancake ingredients. It turns green, but you get all of the benefits of a full meal of protein, carbs, and vegetables that you can take on the go.
