Protein pancakes are delicious, healthy pancakes packed with protein from whole foods including cottage cheese and whole grain oats.
My mom gave me this recipe and I’ve been making it for my family ever since! We LOVE pancakes at our house, but all the carbs and sugar are not the best for anyones waistline 🙂
They’re packed with protein rich ingredients as well, so I can feel good giving them to my family, and they make us feel full longer. (And as a side note, my husband loathes cottage cheese, but he really likes these pancakes!)
Many protein pancake recipes call for protein powder. I prefer getting my protein from whole foods, so the protein richness from these pancakes comes from the cottage cheese (25 grams of protein in one cup of cottage cheese!) and whole grain oats (10 grams of protein per cup). If you want to add a scoop of protein powder to the batter, you can.
This is a small-batch recipe for pancakes. It makes about six regular-size pancakes. Feel free to double the recipe if you’re feeding a bigger group. The nutritional information below is for a one pancake serving.
