Protein Packed Pancakes!

by Kris Pitcher

Sunday's are about recharging in mind and body. Slow mornings, an extra cup of coffee while reading the paper - this is a day filled with ritual and family traditions really. For a lot of people, Sunday holds the family tradition of eating breakfast together. Yummy breakfasts, gooey, drippy, stacked up breakfasts! Mmm!

I've had this one in my back pocket for a while, but when I heard the raindrops this morning...I knew people would be in their pajamas cozied up ready for breakfast. So here is my favorite protein packed pancake recipe.

2 eggs

1/2 C cottage cheese (fat free)

1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 C frozen blueberries

2 T peanut butter (Adams)

Mix & drop by 1/3 C-fulls, cook on med/low heat in a sprayed pan. Makes 4 [100 cal/14 gm protein/3gm fat/3gm carbs]

You can enjoy your family traditions by making a few alterations to the old standbys. I would be surprised if your kid would eat this, so make those special Mickey Mouse shaped Bisquick ones for them. This protein power packed nutrition's for you!
