Have your cake & eat it too…or in this case, make delicious pancakes you won’t have to feel guilty about. I love this recipe by Chris Rocchio and the smell of them cooking reminds me of childhood pancakes.

Ingredients for 3 pancakes (10″ diameter):
1 cup Ancient Grain* Oats
1 cup Egg Whites
1 medium-sized ripe banana
2 Scoops Chocolate Protein
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup blueberries
* Ancient Grain Oatmeal is a mixture of oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chopped almonds, hemp seeds, chia seed, amaranth, and chia seeds from Trader Joe’s

Instructions:
1. Place raw, uncooked oatmeal in a blender or food processor and blend until it becomes fine flour.
2. Pour into large bowl. Add eggs, banana, protein powder, and baking powder and pulse blend until smooth. Toss blueberries into the batter and mix.
3. Cook just like regular pancakes – low heat.

Eat the right away or put them in a meal prep like Chris’ below.
