Lance's Protein Pancakes

Food for the GO!
If you are like most of us, time to cook is hard to come by. Making meal after meal and trying to eat healthy can burn you out. Here is an idea and a recipe to help you “on the goers.”
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1 TBS flax seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Chuck all the ingredients into the blender. Fire it up for a few seconds to get everything good and mixed and then pour out the batter onto a pan or griddle.

What is so awesome about these pancakes is you can quadruple the recipe, make a few dozen small pancakes and then just put them in a ziplock and put them in the fridge or freezer and then when you need to have a quick on the go meal just pop some of those babies in the toaster and ta-da!
Depending on what your goals are (gaining/building, toning/tightening) you can make some quick easy modifications to the recipe.
For me, I am trying to build and gain so I use high protein, high calorie yogurt.  I also throw in a scoop of my favorite protein powder to the batter and I cover the pancake in almond butter for my topping.
If you are trying to lose weight or tone down. Use non-fat greek yogurt and top it with blue berries and agave or honey and cinnamon.  (or just eat them plain, they’re quite good.)
Flip Out! Get Fit!
