I love experimenting with different ingredients when whipping up a pancake breakfast. In this version, I used whole wheat flour, low-fat cottage cheese and a banana (for sweetness). The end result: A tasty flapjack that's loaded with protein and fiber. Top it with fresh fruit for an extra dose of nutrition, then dig in!

Ingredients

    • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
    • 1 whole egg, lightly beaten
    • 3 egg whites, lightly beaten
    • 1 ripe banana
    • 1/3 cup whole-grain pancake mix
    • 1 tablespoon whipped butter
    • 2-3 teaspoons maple syrup

Preparation

Combine all ingredients until everything is well mixed and relatively smooth. Liberally coat a skillet with nonstick oil spray and heat over medium flame. Ladle about 1/4 cup batter (per pancake) and cook on each side for about two minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Makes approximately 12 pancakes; 4 pancakes per serving. Nutrition: Per 4 pancakes (one serving): 220 calories and 18 grams protein
