The breakfast funk. We all find ourselves in one sometimes. Especially if you’re trying to eat low carb and sick of eggs. What else is there? My husband started making these crepe looking things that looked pretty good. I had a bite and surprisingly wanted more. (I call them pancakes because there really is no other name for them.) Before I knew it, I was making these high protein thingies. Besides being super tasty, they’re made with only 3 ingredients–egg whites, greek yogurt and oat bran. No muss no fuss.
Most of us go through periods where we feel like we need to lose a few pounds. It usually seems to be around this time of year. New Years resolutions that light a fire for us to do something about it. Breakfast is a super important part of this. Your metabolism can slow down up to 60% if you skip!
I can get you armed with a few recipes that can be your go to to help lose a few pounds (or continue your healthy eating). Just a quick plug for myself. Such as coconut chia pudding or a smoked salmon and asparagus omelet.
Anyway, I don’t know about you, but as far as cooking breakfast, easy is the only way. Trying to get kids out the door with food in their bellies, teeth brushed and over all groomed is a chore. There’s also workout, chores and a day full of work or errands. The last thing we all want to do is have a labor intensive breakfast. Not something I ever want to do…ask my kids! It’s always super quick.
To make this ridiculously easy thing:
Grab your large non-stick pan. Double coat it with non-stick spray. These pancakes can stick to the pan very easily. Grease it up well! Heat your pan to medium-low.
Meanwhile, whip 2 egg whites, 1 1/2 tablespoons each of plain greek yogurt and oat bran in a small bowl.
Pour your mixture into the pan and let it sit. Cook until the top is bubbly and set. Don’t be tempted to turn the heat up. I’ve made that mistake. You’ll end up with a mess when you flip.
Now take a rubber spatula and run it around the edges to loosen it up.
Then take a large spatula and flip. Cook another minute or so.
It’s done! This is a very versatile pancake.
*Tip–It can be savory or sweet. Add salt and a dollop of sour cream for savory or maple syrup and a dusting of cinnamon for sweet. It goes so well with fresh fruit.
