Eggnog Protein Oat Pancakes for the Holidays

Hi Readers

This morning I was playing around in the kitchen trying to make my favorite protein oat pancakes and realized I had no eggs. Quick thinking led me to a carton of light eggnog that I enjoyed the other evening while decorating my tree. I figured, what the heck, I will give this a try instead of eggs.

The eggnog substitute worked like a charm and the pancakes were fluffy and flavor simply wonderful. I continue to make these as part of my holiday treats for breakfast.

Holiday Healthy Egg Nog Pancakes

Makes 2 very large pancakes (2 servings)

1 cup rolled oats blended to flour consistency
2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder (usually 25g per scoop)
1 tbsp wheat germ
1 tbsp flax meal
2 tsp baking powder
Light eggnog (enough to make pouring consistency)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Pour batter onto prepared griddle and let cook until bubbles form. Turn pancakes over and cook through. Should be fluffy. Don't overcook or they may be dry.

I enjoy mine with honey, but also enjoy pure maple syrup, fresh fruit, berries or fruit only apple butter.

I eat one serving and save the other for the next morning or another snack/meal.

These pancakes are a rich source of essential nutrients from complex carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats. They are also high in fiber and provide lots of fuel for a healthy body.

Enjoy the recipe and Happy Holidays!
