September, Better Breakfast Month
Hello, dear friends!
September is better breakfast month. Who comes out with this things, I do not know, but I like it. Breakfast is my favorite meal and as I have mentioned in the past, I love to have family come over for breakfast. I remember there was a time in my life when I did not have anything to eat until lunch, but that was a thousand years ago. Today, I cannot go without breakfast. Mama Rosa's cafe con leche was the best in the world and the only one I would have. She would serve her cafe con leche in pretty tea cups and I personally think food and drinks taste better when served in the appropriate dish or glassware.
Today, something very appropriate , healthy protein pancakes. My daughter, Anelle swears by these pancakes, as she often triples the recipe and keeps it in her fridge (uncooked.)
Ingredients: Yield: Approx. 5-6 pancakes
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup cottage cheese
4 egg whites, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Spray butter or coconut oil for cooking
Honey for drizzle
Simply, mix all ingredients. In medium skillet, heat spray butter or about a teaspoon oil at medium temperature. Pour 1/2 cup of mixture and lightly press with a fork to give it shape. Cook each side about three minutes and cautiously turn with rubber spatula to cook other side.
Serve and drizzle with honey.
Note: Do not try cooking these in vegetable spray. I tried and it does not work. They will crumble and not not cook appropriately. These pancakes are really good, healthy, and worth trying.
Have a wonderful day!
