Oatmeal Protein Pancakes


By  Cara Trentadue – In the mornings we struggle to find a quick easy breakfast that is actually indicative of Saturday morning comfort food.  If you are in the habit of reading labels (which I hope you are by now), it has become painfully clear that the food industry has a different idea of fast, easy and healthy.

These pancakes can be made ahead of time and eaten at room temp as your running out the door.  The oats provide the complex carb, and the egg whites and additional protein make this a breakfast that will not send you crashing by 10am. The use of coconut oil will provide healthy MCT’s ( Medium Chain Triglycerides) which help facilitate fat burning.

You will need:

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not quick oats)

7 egg whites (carton is fine)

1 ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp coconut oil (virgin)

Pinch Cinnamon

1 tsp good quality vanilla extract (no sugar)

1tsp aluminum free baking powder

Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and cook as you would traditional pancakes.  Serve with maple flakes or fresh fruit and greek yogurt.  You will not miss the butter and syrup*.

If you aren’t watching your weight or have diabetes, you can drizzle a small amount of pure maple syrup but I find fresh fruit more desirable.

My name is Cara (www.carashealthyliving.com) and I have been studying nutrition  and practicing an alternative healthy lifestyle for over 20 years.  After learning how the body has the innate ability to heal itself in most cases proving you give it what it needs to do so I wanted to share this knowledge with the world.

I studied Nutrition and Weight Management Counseling at American Fitness Professionals and Associates and I am always pursuing new knowledge about healing the body and prevention of disease.   With over 20 years of practice behind me there is no argument that prevention is the easiest way to avoid sicknesses like type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.  I do not advocate “diets” I teach lifestyle change.  The children of America in this generation are said to be the only generation whose parents will outlive them.  Diet and lifestyle play a major role in this trend.  We need to turn it around.
