Lately, I have been craving oatmeal raisin cookies. So, I decided to make a healthy pancake that tastes like one instead! And it is delicious, in fact I would prefer to eat this pancake over an oatmeal raisin cookie any day. It is packed with protein and satisfies that sweet tooth inside me. Without further ado, here is the recipe:
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie "Protein" Pancake
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 scoop protein powder (any flavor)
1/2 cup plain low fat greek yogurt
2 egg whites
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup raisins
Optional (for topping): 2 Tbs chopped walnuts, 2Tbs raisins
1. Put all of the ingredients into a blender (except the raisins) and blend until smooth. Stir in the raisins.
2. Over medium heat, spray a nonstick griddle with cooking spray. The raisins tend to sink to the bottom of the bowl, so keep that in mind when spooning out the batter.
3. Flip pancakes when the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges look cooked.
4. Top with raisins and walnuts if you choose but I think the pancake taste awesome on its own!
Happy Guilt Free Eating!
