Healthier Protein Pancakes

Have you been looking for a healthier spin on the classic and well loved pancake? I know you had, that's why I thought I'd share a new favorite breakfast recipe of mine that I found over at Reno Mom's Blog and altered slightly ;) Not only are these pancakes pretty scrumptious for "healthy" pancakes but they can also be altered to suit your tastes and based on what you have laying around the kitchen. I also tried freezing some of them a few weeks ago and when heated back up in the microwave or oven they taste EXACTLY the same as fresh off the griddle. With Little C on the way I'm trying to find healthy breakfast options I can just pop out of our new freezer (thanks tax return $) and heat up in the mornings, otherwise I'll just end up eating cereal every single day...not that there is anything wrong with that I do love me some cereal!

Healthier Protein Pancakes
4 Whole Eggs (6 egg whites if you prefer)
1 Cup of Greek Yogurt (or Cottage Cheese)
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Tbsp. Honey
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 Scoop of Protein Powder (optional)

*Put all ingredients in a blender and blend well. (It will look a little runny but don't worry, that's ok!)
*Pour batter onto greased/non-stick skillet and cook on both sides for 2 min or until done.
*Top with your favorite fruit, peanut butter, or syrup.
*Makes about 7-9 servings

I take the leftover pancakes and flash freeze
them on a baking sheet and then remove and
place in a bag with parchment paper
between each pancake for easy removal every
I put peanut butter and fresh fruit on mine in the mornings
to cut down on the sugar intake versus traditional syrup.
Again, the protein powder is optional, but I did notice that it helped make the batter a little thicker and added a little bit more flavor overall. I also used Mexican vanilla that I found at the store here in Panama City (I know, go figure?) and it was delicious and a little stronger than regular McCormick vanilla you get at the store. P.S. If you haven't tried the "Greek Gods Honey Yogurt" you're missing out. It's out of this world. Enjoy!
