Frugal Fitness Recipe: Protein Pancakes

Makes: 12 pancakes (I eat a lot, so feel free to do a fraction of this recipe and ingredients)


1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar (or smaller amount of Splenda or Stevia)
3 TBSP chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
2 TBSP ground flaxseeds (optional)

You could even add some Chia seeds if you'd like! :)


Grind the oats in a blender or food processor until fine. In a large bowl, combine the ground oats, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, milk, oil, egg, and sugar/Splenda with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix wet ingredients into the dry. Stir in chopped nuts and/or flaxseeds if desired. Lightly oil a skillet or griddle and preheat it to medium heat. Ladle 1/3 cup of the batter onto the hot skillet. Cook the pancakes for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until brown. 

Store additional pancakes for later and reheat if necessary. Eat with margarine, cinnamon, nuts, fruit, and/or sugar free maple syrup.
