I love that there are so many incredible recipes that seem like they should be SO unhealthy, but aren’t. Haven’t had a chance to try these yet, but I’m planning on pulling out this recipe for a brunch sometime in the next couple weeks. Plus mimosas, to drink back all the calories I’m saving. Shameless.
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
3 1/2 tbsp vanilla whey protein powder
1 ripe banana mashed
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup milk
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
extra banana slices and honey for topping
Place everything in a blender and blend into a smooth batter. If the batter seems too thick, add a tablespoon or two of milk. Heat a griddle to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter at a time on the griddle. Cook for several minutes until batter starts to bubble, flip and cook for several more minutes until golden and cooked through.
Top with sliced bananas and a drizzle of warm honey and serve!”
