Wake Me Up Pancakes Recipe

Posted on 24. Mar, 2009 by in Nutrition

I thought that sharing my healthy pancake recipe with you would be a great idea because a lot of people may have trouble replacing their usual cold, sugary breakfast cereals. I know that I used to be a big cereal fan and I used to think that I couldn’t live without them until I found this recipe in the Turbulence Training Forums. It was originally posted by a TT member, Tabitha, who won 3rd place in the last transformation contest. I have made some modifications since I first got this recipe and I’m sure that anyone, even non-pancake lovers, will love these yummy protein pancakes. They definitely give me the extra motivation to wake up at 5 a.m. in the morning whenever I have to get ready for work.

The foundation of these pancakes lies in a melange of wholesome oatmeal base, egg whites, and cottage cheese. I didn’t think that I’d like the cottage cheese but I decided to give it a try anyway. Since then, Tabitha suggested adding Bananas and/or blueberries for a hint of sweetness, flavor, and texture. These pancakes tastes just as sinful as regular diner-style pancakes but it is oh so good for you.

These pancakes smell as good as they are delicious because the recipe calls for nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla which reminds me of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. Ever since, I kicked my cereal habit, these pancakes have been my saving grace without having to make any compromise at all. They can also satisfy my sweet cravings because I use very ripe bananas which also saves me money because I used to just throw the bananas away before I found this recipe. If you have room for more calories in your diet as during a high calorie day or during a muscle gaining phase, add some Turkey Bacon and Turkey sausages to get that homemade “diner” style breakfast.
