Five-ingredient protein pancake


I have to apologize right up front: I have no idea where I found this recipe. I keep a folder on my computer and usually try to save the recipe source but it appears that my system broke down on this one. Apologies to whomever I may have ripped off.

Saturday morning, I decided to forgo my usual oatmeal for something different. I was intrigued by this recipe because 1) I had all the ingredients on hand and 2) I love pancakes but usually don’t order them because I don’t find them filling enough. So I whipped this up in about five minutes.

It was very tasty but at 140 calories per pancake, you should probably make a couple. I was hungry again within a couple of hours.

  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together pancake ingredients.
  2. Preheat a skillet (medium-low heat), spray with non-stick spray, and pour in the batter while shaping it into a pancake with a spoon.
  3. Heat until partially cooked and flip pancake.

Makes 1 large pancake.
