Top-ranked recipe named "BFFM Protein Pancakes"
These pancakes contain a great balance of carbohydrate, protein, and fat. I;ve adapted the recipe from one provided by Tom Venuto on his Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle website: www.burnthefatinnercircle.com
I make these up two or three dozen at a time and wrap them in foil. Refridgerated, they last up to a week and make a handy on-the-go nutrition option.
"Great! I didn't have cottage cheese so I used part-skim ricotta cheese- they came out perfect. I also added 2 tblsp flax seed and hemp powder for added protein. I swapped Splenda with stevia and the taste was great."- Healthychiro21
Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Next add the liquid egg whites, cottage cheese and flavoring extracts. Thoroughly mix the dry and wet ingredients with a spoon. Next, use a high powered stick blender or conventional blender to mix ingredients to a smooth batter texture.
Heat griddle or skillet to approx 400 deg. Lightly mist with cooking oil spray. Using a 1/2 cup scoop ladle batter onto skillet. I generally tip the skillet at various angles to get the batter to flow into a round pancake shape approximately 6 to 8 inches in diameter. Cook until well browned on each side.
Either eat hot off the skillet, or wrap between two sheets of aluminum foil for storage.

mseg 4 years agoThese are my favorite pancakes! For a less sweet version, substitute 2 tbsp agave nectar or honey instead of the splenda. Cook on low heat to ensure that they get completely done.
Carpaholic 4 years agoThe actual combining of the ingredients takes very little time. The majority of the time is spent cooking the pancakes one or two at a time. These taste so good, they can be eaten plain, but they are unbelievable good with fat free cream cheese, sugar free orange marmalde, and fat free whipped topping! [I posted this recipe.]
