Protein Pancakes

This is the most amazing pancake recipe!! It is adapted from Meals & Moves blog. Now that I know how good they are I'm going to follow a suggestion by Confessions of a Recovering Chocoholic to quadruple the recipe next time. I plan on freezing them for quick and healthy breakfasts during the week. 

Ingredients for a single serving:
1/2 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/2 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp mixed seeds 

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend for a minute or so. Spray a frying pan with non-stick cooking spray and pour 1/4 cup batter into the pan. Cook on medium-high heat for a couple minutes on each side, until pancake is cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter. This recipe makes 4 pancakes.

Approximate nutritional information per serving (4 pancakes):
Calories: 349
Carbs: 38 g
Fat: 7 g
Protein: 37 g
Sodium: 820 mg
Fibre: 8 g

(More than half the fat is coming from the mixed seeds - but take comfort knowing that these are healthy fats!)
