TT's Yummy Protein Pancakes

Submitted by: CHILEPALM

Introduction

From Turbulence Training threads to Tabitha to Anna to Tamara...we all tweaked it. The foundation of these healthy, lowfat, gluten-free pancakes lies in a melange of wholesome organic rolled oat "flour", egg whites, and part-skim ricotta!

Ingredients

    Old-Fashiond Oatmeal, Organic, 1 cup
    Ricotta Cheese, part skim .75 cup
    Egg substitute, liquid .75 cup + 1 whole egg
    OR one whole egg in 1 cup and 3 lg egg whites
    Banana, 1
    Vanilla Extract, 1 t or equiv. raw vanilla bean
    Cinnamon, fresh-ground, .5 tsp
    Nutmeg, ground .5 tsp
    Truvia (stevia) 2-3 packets

Directions

Put Oats in the blender and grind to a powdery texture. Take it out and set aside.
Put the rest of the ingredients in the blender and puree until smooth and creamy. This makes up the pancake batter. Drop in the oat "flour" through the top gradually.

Be heating a small pan over low-med to medium heat and lightly spray it with Olive Oil or nonstick. You can pour the batter directly into the pan until it spreads out about 6-7" diameter. You should be able to make six pancakes.
Turn the pancake once bubbles appear - about 3-4 minutes. When one side is cooked, the other side should only cook for another 3 minutes.

Decide if you want one or two--they're only 136 cals each and packed with protein! You can eat them straight from the pan or put them in the refrigerator overnight. That way when you're running out the door in the morning you can pop one in the toaster on low and warm it up for a quick, superhealthy breakfast the next morning. They can store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Also delicious topped with fresh sliced strawberries or blueberries soaked in a little water and stevia overnite in the fridge to make a healthy raw compote!

Makes six 6-7" protein pancakes.

Number of Servings: 6

    I'm intrigued enough to try these! Note that to be TRULY gf, the oats need to also be certified gluten-free due to cross-contamination problems. If newly diagnosed need to find certified gf oats, their local health food store likely has some or online sources: glutenfreeoats.com or bobsredmill.com - 3/25/09
