Keep chocolate chips and cookie dough in your diet with these Cookie Dough Protein Pancakes! This easy protein pancake recipe is fluffy, delicious, healthy, and takes no time at all to make.
You’ll need either a food processor like this or good blender and either a pan or griddle to make your pancakes on. The processor or blender is a must as it’s needed to blend your rolled oats and cottage cheese in.
Start this one by adding right into your food processor or blender 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon of butter extract, 1 large whole egg, 1 large egg white, 1 teaspoon of light brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, and 1 1/2 scoops of a vanilla protein powder.
Process or blend everything together until smooth.
Take out a pan or griddle, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat it with some non-sticking cooking spray.
Pour some of your protein pancake mix onto your pan or griddle once it heats up. You can make your pancakes whatever size or shape you want!
Cookie Dough Protein Pancakes
After you pour your mix onto your pan or griddle you’re going to want to quickly add on a few chocolate chips and some healthy crushed up chocolate chip cookies. I used 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips and 30g total worth of cookies across all of my pancakes.
Top your pancakes with a little bit more mix so that you cover your chocolate chips and crushed up cookies. Doing this will prevent the cookie dough “topping” form burning when you flip them over.
Let each side of your cookie dough protein pancakes cook for 2-3 minutes. Depending on the size of your pancakes, this may take less or more time. Keep an eye on them and remember how long they took for next time!
