Saturday Morning – Healthy Pancakes

Hello everyone!

We hope that you were able to enjoy some great breakfast like we did this weekend! We have always been breakfast lovers and have many memories growing up that include breakfast. Our mom used to make us green pancakes for St. Patrick’s Day every year. We also enjoy having a breakfast casserole after opening gifts on Christmas morning. Since breakfast is not always healthy, we decided to search for some delicious and nutritious pancake recipes.

Here is the recipe for the pancakes we decided to make. Enjoy!

Prep time: 5 min  Cook time: 10 min

Bake in non-stick pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side until the pancake is cooked to your liking.

Top your pancakes with whatever you desire from berries to bananas or syrup.

We liked that the pancakes were healthier and made us feel full without the extra calories. They didn’t have any flour and hardly any sugar. The cottage cheese added some protein and the egg whites lowered the cholesterol as opposed to whole eggs. While the pancakes were healthier, they were not as fluffy as typical pancakes. They were a little more chewy (french-toast like). However, we enjoyed them without feeling guilty about indulging in Saturday morning breakfast. We would definitely make them again. We hope you like them as well! Enjoy and talk to you guys soon!
