Oatmeal Raisin Cookie “Protein” Pancakes

My Thin Mint Shake, Samoa Shake and Tagalong Shake are perfect examples of turning the foods I crave into healthier options.  This is my mission!  As you might know, I detest the word “diet.”  A diet deprives you, a diet ends; a healthier lifestyle should never end but it should also be manageable.  A healthier lifestyle is something you can live with the rest of your life without feeling deprived.  I promote living a healthier, HAPPIER lifestyle.  You want a cookie?  Then lets make a cookie that is healthy for you!

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
Ingredients
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
Directions
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!

Great easy quick make and I am by no means domestic! Maybe I read wrong, but I found it easiest to mix in raisins by placing them once batter is on skillet vs stirring in while in blender cup. Thanks for sharing this awesomeness!

Very easy, quick make and I'm not very domestic. Maybe I read wrong, but found it easier to place raisins in the batter once on the skillet as they were hard to sift through mix in the blender cup.

Great recipe, but I found it worked great without the added brown sugar, and I used low-fat cottage cheese instead of the yoghurt - it had a sweeter taste that way. I also used the food processor because I don't have a blender. Regardless, great inspiration and my hubby LOVED them. Thanks!
