A Quick, Easy, and Healthy Snack

McKay Protein Pancakes

IMG_1095

3/4 cup egg whites – I use either Eggland’s Best or Egg Beaters whites

1 whole large egg

2oz. cooked sweet potato

1 serving Vanilla protein powder

1 tbsp. Fage

1/4 cup oats – I use the Quaker 1-minute instant since it is already milled down

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. pumpkin spice

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Truvia to sweeten

Blend everything together, I use my Magic Bullet. Spray small crepe pan with Pam, and pour 1/2 of the mix (approximately 3/4 cup) in the pan. Cook over medium heat.

These are great for both a healthy hot breakfast or a cold midday snack to pack in your lunch bag. I like to toss one in a Ziploc bag, to snack on at my desk.
