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.)

                                                             Protein Pancakes

    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!
