Recipe: Protein Pancakes

Lots of protein pancake recipes around, my favorite is from Bill Phillip's book Eating For Life. Only difference is, I like to use whole eggs. Sometimes when you're eating clean it's easy to forget about Essential Fatty Acids. The word Essential is a clue. Fat is not the enemy. But if you need to demonize a food substance, I suggest sugar. Nancy Appleton who wrote Lick the Sugar Habit has a new book out called Suicide By Sugar. I haven't read it yet, but look forward to it.

Protein Pancakes

1/2 cup oatmeal
Splenda or other healthy sweetener to taste, I tend toward 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese
2 whole eggs or 1/2 cup eggwhites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

cook them in a pan or on a griddle like regular pancakes. Flip 'em when the bubbles start popping, or "the eyes start opening."

cooking and prep time about 10 minutes
390 calories w/ whole eggs
360 calories w/ eggwhites
