Who says clean eating can’t be decadent?

I have always thought of pancakes as a heavy, bready, empty-calorie kind of breakfast.

This recipe has changed my view.

They are decadent, moist, full of nutrition, and contains a whopping 24 grams of protein.

These high protein pancakes are perfect for Sunday morning breakfast or after a good workout.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 lemon juice only
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour preferably organic
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil

For the blueberry sauce:

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 tbsp. coconut sugar

For the caramel:

  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almond butter

Instructions

To Make the blueberry sauce:

  • Place the blueberries, water, and sugar in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until the blueberries begin to break apart.

To make the caramel:

  • Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup together in a small pot over low heat. Whisk in the almond butter for about 30 seconds until fully incorporated and very smooth.

To make the pancakes:

  • In a bowl, whisk together the yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, and lemon juice.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Fold the flour into the yogurt mixture, and stir well just until blended.
  • Heat a large pan over medium-low heat. Coat it with a little coconut oil, and add batter in large spoonfuls (about ¼ cup each).
  • Flip the pancakes when the tops begin to bubble, around 2-3 minutes, and cook the other side until browned.
  • Serve with the blueberry sauce and almond caramel.
  • Makes around 12 pancakes (nutrition information is for 3 pancakes per serving and ¼ of the sauce and caramel).
