The perfect snack pancake!

PancakesI LOVE these simple and nutritious pancakes! A fellow CrossFitter kindly gave me the recipe and I adjusted the portions to create a balanced snack. Prepping and cooking can take a little time but once you’ve made a batch, they’re a great go to snack for the week ahead, depending on how much time you have! It’s just as important to prepare snacks as it is your main meals. When you have a wee rumble in your tumble it’s easy to grab a chocky biscuit/cereal bar – lets avoid that situation and prepare your snacks! Take an hour or so on a Sunday afternoon. It’ll be worth your time.
Ingredients – (based on 1 portion, makes 3)
↠ 1 whole egg  / 2 large egg whites
↠ ¼ cup cottage cheese
↠ ⅓ cup rolled oats
↠ ½ cup blueberries
↠ 6 roasted almonds

Pancake Ingredients

Put a flat skillet onto a medium heat to warm up whilst you pull together the ingredients. If the pan is not hot enough or at the right temperature these pancakes will stick and be a flop!
Next blast all the ingredients together in a blender. The mixture might have a gritty consistency but you don’t notice this when eating them once they have cooled.

Pour some of the mixture onto the skillet. It is ready to flip when the pancake starts to bubble. This mixture will make three thin medium sized pancakes. Huge pancakes are great but the pancake split in two when I tried to flip it!

If blueberries aren’t your thing, substitute with 1/3 banana. Delish! I’d love to hear what you think of them! Enjoy!
