Normally, my protein pancakes have cottage cheese in them. I'm out, so I decided to sub ricotta cheese instead.
1/4 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 whole egg
13 grams protein powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
dash of cinnamon
dash of vanilla
Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Then cook as you would normal pancakes.
Topped with the standard blueberry sauce:
1 cup of frozen blueberries (I like Wymans wild blueberries)
1 tsp of cornstarch
1 tbsp of cold water.
Heat the frozen blueberries in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot and just simmering. There will be juice in the bottom of the pan. Don't boil them! In a small bowl mix the cold water and cornstarch. Add to the pan and stir until the mixture thickens up - about 30 seconds.
I think I prefer the cottage cheese, these pancakes were a little more dense and a touch drier. Very mild in taste, though. It does give me 40 more calories and 7 grams less of protein doing it this way than the normal way, but it was a fun experiment!
