Banana Bread Pancakes

These pancakes are a recently added rotation to my weekly breakfast menu. With a whole egg and cottage cheese in the mix, its a great way to get some protein in while enjoying sweet and delicious pancakes.

Banana Bread Pancakes

(adapted every so slightly from Peanut Butter Fingers)

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese

1/2 mashed banana

1 egg

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Put all of the ingredients in your food processor and zap together until everything is combined.

Pour small scoops onto a griddle or skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray over medium-low heat. I usually get 3 or 4 pancakes from the batch, depending on how big I make them.

Once the edges are golden, flip and cook for another couple of minutes.

Smother with syrup, fresh fruit, and some powdered sugar if you’re in the mood to feast like a king, which, lets face it, I usually am.

{this recipe can be easily doubled, as seen above, or even tripled if you’ve got lots of hungry mouths to feed!}
