Protein Pancakes


Joy Bauer's
Because research shows that starting your day with a high-protein breakfast can aid weight loss and boost energy, these "Joy Food" pancakes will leave you feeling worlds better than traditional starchy flapjacks. Whip up a batch and dig in.

Technique tip: For a moister pancake, cover the skillet with a lid while the pancake is cooking.

Swap option: Nuke frozen fruit in the microwave, then pour the fruit and all the natural juices over the finished pancake as I've done in this picture. Tastes amazing . . . and no added sugar.

Step 1

Generously coat a skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium heat.

Combine all of ingredients in a small bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed.

Pour the mixture onto the skillet to make either 1 jumbo pancake or 5 small pancakes. Cook until you see small bubbles forming, about 2 to 3 minutes for the jumbo pancake or 1 to 2 for the small pancakes. Then flip the pancake(s) over and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
