Lemon Blueberry High Protein Pancakes | A Sweet Pea Chef


Hey, its Lacey here with the Sweet Pea Chef.
And today, we are going to make some delicious, high-protein lemon blueberry pancakes. That
will make it so you can have pancakes again for breakfast and stay on your healthy lifestyle.
So let’s get started. To make the batter, in a blender, combine
one-half cup old-fashioned, uncooked oats, three egg whites, one-half cup cottage cheese,
two scoops vanilla protein powder, two teaspoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice, a quarter teaspoon
fresh lemon zest, and a quarter cup of water. Now, we’re going to blend all of this until
the mixture is very fully pureed. You may need to scrape some of the batter from the
sides of the blender, as it does tend to stick. Once it’s pureed, pour into a large mixing
bowl, and then fold in the two-thirds cups of fresh blueberries. You could also use frozen
blueberries for this recipe if you don’t have fresh. Heat a griddle or a fry pan over medium-high
heat, and then add enough coconut oil to lightly grease the pan. Should be about a teaspoon
to start. Once the oil is hot, pour one-third of a cup
of that pancake batter onto the center of the pan. And then we’re going to allow it
to cook for about two to four minutes, or until the edges start to harden, and a spatula
can easily slide underneath the pancake. Flip over, and then cook an additional two to four
minutes, or until the batter is cooked through. Now, repeat with the remaining pancakes. When I make these pancakes, I make a delicious
lemon yogurt topping to go on top, so I’m going to show you how to do that. It’s super
easy. All you have to do is combine a quarter cup plain Greek yogurt, a tablespoon honey,
a teaspoon of freshly-squeezed lemon juice, and a quarter teaspoon lemon zest in a small
mixing bowl. To serve, top the pancakes with the lemon yogurt sauce, along with just a
few fresh blueberries and a little extra lemon zest, if you’d like. Just one of these pancakes has only 127 calories,
15 grams of protein, and 2 grams of fiber, making it a perfect, nutritious breakfast
or snack to stay on your healthy life style. To get more tips and tricks for eating healthy,

    i do not understand why people want to add more protein and less carbs in their diet. i have a friend who never eats rice for lunch (in asia, rice is a common staple), because she thinks it is carb-loading. could someone please enlighten me???
