This is a great versatile pancake that is packed with protein, fiber, low fat and no refined sugar.  Its made with Cottage cheese and egg whites. So gives a healthy kick for the day or great meal for after that big workout. I like to have a bit of honey or sugar free syrup to dip.  They are also yummy just as a grab and snack finger food when you just want a nibble.

  • 1 cup Fat free cottage cheese

  • 2egg whites

Protein Alternative

I have been getting request for Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy free, high protein, healthy options. Not that my cooking isn’t healthy but us southern cooks do gravitate to real butter and heavy cream at times. so I decided to do some research and start coming up with some original options in these categories. I discovered a great protein alternative called TVP(Textured vegetable protein). Bobs Red Mill makes a very affordable product that I found to be very tasty. It has a unique chewy texture that when rehydrated and mixed in with sauces, chili, soups, salads. ┬áCheck out my Protein Packed Wild Rice Recipe.
