Chocolate Protein Pancakes…

I woke up this morning having a craving for Pancakes. So off to Pinterest I went and searched for Protein Pancakes. I found a recipe that sounded great. When I went to my fridge, I noticed my cottage cheese was not so fresh anymore, but I had unopened Ricotta in there so that is what I substituted. Also I reduced the eggwhites, cause the first batch was terrible and landed in the disposal. So here we go:

This makes 4 big pancakes:

2 egg whites
1/2 cup low fat Ricotta
1/2 cup oats
1/2 scoop of Protein powder (I used Cellu-Cor Molten Chocolate)

Put in blender and mix.

Then prepare like regular pancakes, medium heat. I put some cooking spray on my griddle.

Overnight Oatmeal Parfait…

I like oatmeal, but I don’t like to cook in the morning… So when I found this Overnight oatmeal recipe on Pinterest I thought “Self let’s try this”

I changed the recipe and here it is:

Mix all these in a small Tupperware container or bowl.

1/4 c. of oats
1/4 c. of Vanilla Almond Milk
1 tsp. Chia Seeds
Cinnamon

Cover and put in the fridge overnight.

This morning I layered the following in another Tupperware container…

1/2 c. of Fage fat free yogurt
1/2 tbsp of natural Peanut butter
1/2 c. of fresh sliced strawberries.

It was delicious and I am definitely going to make it again.
