High Protein Pancakes
- Ready in: 10 min
- Serves: 1
- Complexity: easy
- 1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese (or ricotta with a little milk)
- 1/4 cup Bisquick* mix
- Great additions: blueberries, cranberries, bananas & nuts
This recipe is designed to serve one, but your whole family will enjoy these. Adjust quantities accordingly for more servings.
Briefly mix all three ingredients together. Don’t over mix. Blueberries, cranberries or bananas & nuts make great healthy additions.
Drop onto a hot skillet and cook like pancakes, turning once. Unlike the photo of traditional pancakes, use butter in moderation! Real maple syrup has healthy minerals and is a great natural sweetener when used in moderation.
*Note: If you don't have Bisquick or you can't buy it in your country, it is simply a boxed biscuit or pancake mix. Read the ingredients below and you can probably find something similar in your area, or here's the recipe for making it yourself:
Biscuit mix or 'Bisquick'
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Crisco or plain shortening.
Mix dry ingredients together, then using a pastry knife cut the Crisco or shortening into the mix. Makes 1 cup Bisquick equivalent. Left over (dry) Bisquick mix must be stored in the fridge.
