Biggest Loser Oatmeal Pancakes

I've never been a petite girl.  Its not that I consider myself FAT or Obese (even though the fat index does...) but I can say without a doubt that I'm pretty chubby.  About 7 months ago I gave up on my love for soda. It was a heartbreak for sure but I see now that I'm better off alone in that respect.  3 weeks ago I have finally decided to break up with that oh so charming sugar.  yeah I know.. WHAT THE HECK WAS I THINKING???  Mainly, I've made a few changes in my eating habits.  Changing things around has been huge for me.  I would love to lose some of this weight and fit comfortably in a smaller pair of jeans but mainly.. I want to feel good.  So far... I feel better.. sleep better.. have lost a little weight..  Its been great for me.  Everyone's body is different and needs to take care of it in a different way.  If you really want to see what I have been doing in that respect you can follow me HERE.  Just fair warning.. You will see me in all my fatness.. consider yourself warned..  anyway..  eating better requires some healthy recipes.  A few of you have asked for some of them.  I'm pretty busy with school, kids and just plain keeping up but I'll put some up once in a while starting with these pancakes.  mmmm..  these really surprised me..  so yummy, filling, and a great low calorie way to start your day.  I usually eat mine with a no sugar preserve.

Biggest Loser Oatmeal Pancakes

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese ( I used low fat)
  • 1 tsp. sugar or honey ( I use Stevia)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Throw it all into a blender, blend and pour onto a hot griddle or cast iron pan.  Wait for the bubbles to appear and flip.   I divide this into 4 pancakes.  This breaks down to about 80 calories per pancake.  (Watch what you put on these as topping considering this is where a lot of calories come from.) 

Total calories per recipe- 315
