What’s for breakfast? Stir up a batch of protein pancakes!
  • February 27, 2014
  • I would eat breakfast for every meal of my life for the rest of time if given the choice. However, most of the world likes to eat other meals like “Lunch,” “Dinner” and “snacks.” One of my favorite breakfast foods is a protein-packed treat that I’ve been eating since I first found and adapted it from the Dukan Diet book.

    They’re super simple and are a delicious way to start your day.


    • 2 egg whites
    • 2 Tablespoons of oat bran
    • 2 Tablespoons of Greek yogurt
    • a splash of agave nectar

    Protein pancake ingredients

    Step 1: combine all ingredients and stir together until it’s a batter-like consistency

    Step 4: top with a little more Greek yogurt, agave nectar and some berries if you’re feeling festive.

      Question- I’m somewhat challenged when it comes to successfully flipping pancakes. Will these protein pancakes hold up in my waffle maker? Also, I love how few ingredients they have! So simple.

        Make them smaller for easy flipping! Hmm not sure about the waffle maker, but that sounds like the prefect Saturday morning experiment 🙂
