Hot on the heels of publishing the new, simplified, and improved GLAD diet, I give you….The GLAD Protein Pancake!
- High in protein
- Healthy – there’s virtually no sugar
- Real quick and easy to make.
This batch delivers 32g of protein, and there’s no protein powder involved!
You only need 3 simple ingredients:
- Cottage Cheese
However, to add taste, I’d highly recommend you add
- Sweetener like stevia
- Flavoring like cocoa, vanilla, or cinnamon.
- 65g oats (just under 1 cup)
- 180g cottage cheese (just under 1 cup)
- 2 whole eggs
- As much sweetener as you like (I used a lot for this recipe)
Blend them up in a food processor or mix it together manually.
While a low-fat version wouldn’t taste as nice, you could use low-fat cottage cheese and 5 x egg whites if you really wanted to.
I decided to make 4 x smaller pancakes from this batch, as opposed to 2 x large ones. Here’s a pic of the batter cooking.
Once you cook them up, you can add whatever you want. Fruit, sugar-free syrup, anything that is low or no sugar is GLAD-friendly.
I added more stevia and some butter on top. It looked like this…
Now, I know someone’s gonna ask, “Can I add whey to this?”
You can, but it will taste a little dryer. The good news is that it will increase the protein content and you can make it whatever flavor you want.
If you decide to add whey, reduce the oats accordingly. So you might use 30g whey (1 scoop) and 35g oats (1/2 cup).
If you try a variation of this, let me know how it works out below.
Hope You Enjoy It!
