Feeling sluggish by lunchtime? You may not be giving your body enough fuel in the morning! We’ve said it before—breakfast is just as important as your other meals, and you need to make sure you’re giving yourself sufficient energy to get through your busy day.

We love these oat pancakes, made with heart-healthy rolled oats and protein-packed cottage cheese. They have the perfect combination of protein, carbohydrates and fiber to keep you full and energized way beyond breakfast!

All you need:

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup 1% cottage cheese
  • 3 egg whites

In food processor or blender, mix ingredients until oats are completely blended and the mixture is smooth. Spray a medium-sized skillet with non-stick spray and place on low-medium heat. Then pour on that batter! When the batter begins to bubble, flip ‘em. This recipe will make 3 or 4 small pancakes, or about 2 medium-large pancakes, depending on how big you like your pancakes. They are a perfect alternative to greasy, calorie packed pancakes, and taste delicious. The entire recipe will set you back no more than 300 calories, and contains a whopping 30 grams of protein. So go ahead, eat the whole thing! What’s your favorite filling breakfast?
