This recipe allows you to enjoy the taste of pancakes without overloading your body with calories and sugar. Healthy pancakes are an option your entire family will love.
Not only do these pancakes provide a healthier alternative to most traditional pancake recipes, they have added health benefits. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which are associated with preventing cancer and a variety of other health problems related to inflammation. They are low-calorie, but sweet, so you do not need to smother these pancakes in high-calorie syrup. The oatmeal in these oatmeal blueberry protein pancakes fills you up for hours. It provides soluble fiber, which satisfies your hunger and keeps your blood sugar in balance.

- ½ cup uncooked rolled oats (Old fashioned oatmeal)
- 1/3 cup Egg whites
- 1 scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder (23grm protein per scoop)
- 1 tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
- ¼ of a ripe Banana
- 1 tablespoon Greek Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of good Vanilla extract
- ¼ cup frozen Blueberries
Throw everything except blueberries in the blender and blend until smooth. Spray pan with safflower (or other) oil and get it hot like a griddle, pour half of the mixture into pan, and place a few blueberries on top. These pancakes won’t “bubble” on top like regular pancakes, so you need to watch the bottoms. When bottom is lightly brown and the pancaked is cooked halfway through, flip and cook the other side – this will also heat the frozen blueberries. When done, remove pancake and pour in the rest of the batter, repeat.
