I did a lot of cooking over the weekend, including 2 batches of these....

(take note of the lovely backsplash!)

I saw the recipe in a magazine waiting at the doctors office last week. They are packed with protein and gluten free. I'm really trying to find new gluten free recipes and I like starting my day with a high protein meal. I just feel better and don't get hungry mid morning. I think my body just likes a lot of protein anyways.

Anyways, I'm a nerd and was excited to give them a try. But, I have to admit I was a little concerned about how they would actually taste. I decided to try them for lunch on Saturday while Jim was at work so I could just toss the evidence and forget the whole thing ever happened if they turned out to be disgusting. The result...surprisingly delicious! And easy enough that they are certainly worth trying.

Protein Pancakes
1/2 C. rolled oats
1/2 C. cottage cheese
1/2 C. egg whites (2-3 eggs)
1 tsp vanilla
Dash of cinnamon

Blend all ingredients (I used the Magic Bullet).
Heat skillet over medium heat, coat with cooking spray or a little oil first **The will stick so make sure the skillet is not too hot**
Pour ~1/4 C. batter to form pancakes.
Cook 2-3 minutes per side. It will start to bubble when it's time to flip.
Top with fruit and drizzle with agave nectar

(I defrosted some yummy mango chunks from Trader Joes)
