This Low Calorie pancakes recipe is another Body For Life classic . The recipe uses egg whites and cottage cheese to keep the calories low, but the protein still high!
Weight loss happens when you practice portion control and limit calories. There are a few ways to be happy and satisfied on a low calorie diet. First is to eat DELICIOUS and filling food. The second is to eat high volume, low calorie foods. These pancakes tackle both of those. They are not only low in calories, so you can eat MANY. But, they are a great source of protein and carbs, making them filling and satisfying as well.
Each of this recipe for low calorie pancakes are only 45 calories, but they have equal amounts of protein and carbs, at 5 grams each! You seriously, can’t go wrong with those kind of macros! Am I right??
One trick to keeping this low calorie is the sweetener you decide to use. Honestly, I normally would just use small amounts of regular sugar, but this Monk Fruit Sweetener happened to be on sample at Costco yesterday. It’s zero calories and the sample was just a simple strawberry dipped in the sugar. It tasted great, and normally I HATE sugar substitutes. So, I went ahead and bought it.
The recipe is simple after that. Blend all ingredients in a blender and pour 1/4 cup portions onto a skillet. I was able to get 13 pancakes out of this recipe using a 1/4 cup measuring cup.
Finally, one more low calorie product- the Walden farms pancake syrup is also zero calories!
