Hi.

Welcome to Wholehearted Homes! This site is a space to find easy and simple meals that are both nutritious and nourishing for you and your family!

Power Pancakes

Power pancakes are the PERFECT post workout breakfast, or even mid morning snack!  These protein packed, nutrient rich circles of goodness use only a few ingredients and can be made in advanced, frozen, and then thawed in your toaster( just like those toaster waffles we all used to eat as a kid!)

Ingredients:

 

½ cup of old fashioned oats

¼ cup of cottage cheese ( or 1 ripened banana if you are completely dairy free)

¼ cup of egg whites( if you need more protein substitute this for 1 whole egg)

1 tablespoon of almond milk

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

 

Directions:

 

  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth.

  2. Take out a big pan and spray with coconut oil.  Pour the batter to make two pancakes.  Cook on each side for 4 minutes.  

  3. Take off and enjoy with your favorite maple syrup, blueberry compote, or peanut butte( my personal favorite!)

** Each batch makes two pancakes.  These are wonderful to freeze and then take out when needed and pop into the toaster.  

** For a fall flavor that will rock your socks check out my Pumpkin Power Pancakes on my blog!

Substitutes:
For a dairy free option sub out cottage cheese for one mashed banana

For a grain free option sub out the ½ cup of oats for ½ cup of coconut flour( you may need to add a little bit of almond milk to thin the mixture a bit!)
