These little perfectly balanced protein pancakes – aka – MANCAKES have taken off in my house! It started when I was helping my hubby with his meal plan and was in the middle of a 3-day refresh. I watched him make them for 3 nights and decided this would be my first non-vegan food item when I was finished! And I have been hooked on them ever since!

Here’s the thing – they’re so versatile! You can add more or less oats…you can do just eggs, just egg whites or a combo of egg and egg whites…all depending on your own preferences and goals! Plus my little guy likes them so its a bonus score!

I’ll share with you the 21-day fix/Insanity Max: 30 approved recipe I use along with my husband’s.

 

WHAT YOU NEED

Her recipe (21 day fix approved) – Yields 4-5 pancakes

  • 1/4 cup quick oats – 1 Yellow
  • 4 Egg whites – 1/2 Red
  • 1/2 cup berries or 1/4 of a banana – 1/2 Purple
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

His recipeYields 12 pancakes

  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 6 Egg whites
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 banana or 1 cup berries
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  • Preheat pan to medium heat.
  • Combine the Egg/Egg whites, oats, vanilla and cinnamon. You can do this in a bowl if you want to leave the oats ‘whole’ or in a blender if you like a smoother, more pancake-like consistency. Stir or pulse a few times to combine.

  • Add fruit and pulse until you get the desired consistency you like!
  • Using a 1/4 cup, pour into pan, cooking each side about 2 minutes or until you see the edges forming. Flip once. Let cool and store in air tight container or eat immediately!

The one thing I LOVE about these is that you can eat them hot or cold, in the car, or running around – which fits my lifestyle perfectly!!!

My husband prefers a banana in his and blended smooth where I prefer the berries and more like a oat consistency.

Honestly though – you can’t go wrong! They’re so tasty and the fact that they’re also gluten free is just an added bonus!
