Low Carb Pancakes ~ Higher Protein

Everyone has their favorite pancake recipe it seems.   I’ve been tweaking my recipe for the past couple of months.  I’m determined.

Looking for an easy, filling breakfast that won’t spike your sugar?  In our tiny space, no fuss is always on the menu and these Trim Healthy Mama approved pancakes fit the bill.   I whip them up in a bowl with my immersion blender.


Low Carb High Protein Pancakes


Thankfully they are filling.  My kids can usually eat quite a few traditional pancakes but after 2 of these low carb high protein pancakes, they are full. Add some scrambled eggs as a side to fill in any cracks.

I use my favorite Swanson’s Protein Powder, (click here, to save $5 off your first order – that is my referral link) to up the protein.  And if you’ve never had cottage cheese in your low carb pancakes, trust me when I tell you, you’ll never notice the cottage cheese.

Make sure you don’t fry these pancakes too long or they get on the tough side.  Still delicious, just a different texture.  The keen (or not so keen) eye will see that I actually cooked my pancakes too long in that picture above – you don’t want them that dark.  I’ll be the example.

For my family of 6, I double this batch.


Low Carb Pancakes

1/4 c. cottage cheese
1/4 c. old fashioned oats
1/4 c. golden flax meal
3 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 scoop protein powder
1 tsp truvia


Blend all the ingredients in a blender, (I use my stick blender).  Pour scoops of pancake batter onto a medium hot griddle.  Fry until bottom is lightly browned.  Flip and repeat.  Serve with Stevia Maple Syrup or make your own from Gwen’s Nest.
