These pancakes are high in protein and fibre to help you feel satisfied with stable energy throughout the morning.

Makes one serving

Prep time: 5-10 minutes (you can save time by making a batch of the dry ingredients and storing in an individual container so it’s ready to go whenever you are!)

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  ¼ cup dry oats
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour (or whole grain pancake mix)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax or chia seed
  • A few tbsp milk
  •  ¼ cup berries (fresh or frozen)

Method:

  1. Combine wet ingredients and mix well.  Add dry ingredients.  Then, add just enough milk so that batter is wet but still quite thick.
  2. Melt 1 tsp non-hydrogenated margarine or butter in a pan.  Add batter (makes 1 very large pancake or several small ones).  Cook on low-medium heat until top of pancake(s) start to bubble and flip till cooked evenly.
  3. Serve with a bit of maple syrup and/or plain/vanilla yogurt on top.
