Happy National Pancake Day!
Are you wondering how as gym owners we can healthfully promote Pancake day? Before you drown your sorrows in your black coffee, turkey bacon and egg whites, read on. We’ve got a great recipe that allows you to enjoy this guilty pleasure while still consuming a healthy, balanced meal. All you need are the following ingredients:
1/3 cup quick cooking oats
1/3 cup egg whites (about 3 large egg whites)
1/3 cup cottage cheese or 1/4 cup greek yogurt
Optional add-ins (use any or all):
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp soaked chia seeds
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 cup mashed banana or berries
Take these items and place in a good blender. mix well on high speed and let stand for about 5-10 minutes. This makes your “batter”. While they are standing spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Take the batter and pan fry as you would any normal pancake. Recipe will make one large pancake or 3 small ones. Top with fruit, a dollop of peanut butter or yogurt. Enjoy!
