Strawberry Shortcake Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

1 Scoop vanilla protein powder

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup egg whites

2 Tbs almond milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp Stevia or Truvia

ย 

Combine all dry ingredients, including the oats in a food processor and blend well until you’ve achieved a flour-like consistency. Combine wet & dry ingredients in a bowl & mix well. Spray heated skillet with non-stick canola spray. ย Cook pancakes on medium heat until bubbles appear at the top. Flip the pancakes and continue until the inside has been thoroughly cooked. For thinner pancakes, add more milk. I prefer thinner batter so I end up with a stack of 3 pancakes. Serving size is the entire recipe regardless of the amount of pancakes made. Top with Vanilla Greek Yogurt Whip, fresh strawberries, & cinnamon (optional).

ย 

*Oats are a good source of healthy carbs and protein. I personally do not recommend cutting carbs out of your diet completely. Carbohydrates are the body’s number one source of energy. By depriving your body of carbs, you are depriving yourself of energy. Instead, replace processed white carbs, with nutritionally beneficial carbs!
