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

Directions

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.

  1. Sneaky, sneaky cottage cheese!!!!! 🙂 I’m glad I”m not the only one throwing it in everything. Ha, ha!
    Thanks for linking up at Trim Healthy Tuesday!

    • Thank you for hosting, Stacy. I hate cottage cheese but it is a great protein. I love the fact that I can slip it into recipes and hide it from my tastebuds.

  2. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Would this be an E or S meal?

    • Hi Sheri, this would be an S because of the fat in the eggs. The carbs in the oatmeal are not enough to make them an E. Hope this helps!

      • Thanks! Even after 5 weeks on THM plan and 12 lbs lighter, I still get this confused! I am really enjoying your recipes.

  3. Although I saved this recipe some time ago, I made it for the first time this morning. They were wonderful, Thanks! I did replace the oats with almond flour to decrease the carb count even further and added 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to puff them up just a little. Will definitely be making them again!

  4. LOOKS DELISH! I AM A SUCKER FOR PANCAKES AND I HAVE FOUND A “S” RECIPE WITH JUST FLAX SEED AND THE TEXTURE IS VERY ODD. LOOK FORWARD TO TRYING THESE.
