Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

Breakfast for me is usually a pretty utilitarian meal. Not because I want it to be. I actually love breakfast food and would be the first to line up if a restaurant starting to serve a multiple course breakfast. Imagine breakfast appetizers, entrees, and desserts. I would never have to choose between savory and sweet again. It would be lovely.

But back to breakfast. I hear a lot from folks that breakfast can be a tough meal – you don’t want to use too many points but you definitely don’t want to hungry two hours after eating. That’s the worst – when your stomach begins growling in a work meeting and every body casually tries to ignore it but you know that everyone knows it is you. This won’t happen with these oatmeal pancakes. They are hearty, satisfying, and delicious. Top them with anything you love – blueberries, bananas, shredded coconut, maple syrup, or pumpkin butter.

    Hi, I have been making these pancakes for years. I also add 1/2 of a very ripe banana and frozen blueberries. They’re amazing.

    How about greek yogurt instead of cottage cheese?

    • Kristen on October 20, 2012

      I think that would work – let me know how it turns out if you try it!

        I have an aversion to cottage cheese so I used the Greek Yogurt. Came out fine. Today I used cottage cheese and got good results. If I hadn’t made them myself, I would not have known the cottage cheese was in them. I topped them with a fried egg and Walden Blueberry Syrup for a truly Slender Kitchen IHOP experience at 8 points.
