Blue Ribbon Batter!

It's no secret that HG LOVES breakfast (it IS the most important meal of the day -- that's NOT a rumor).  But don't think for one second we're gonna be satisfied with some lame-o boring b-fast.  Nuh-uh.  We want pancakes.  With blueberries!  STAT!  Check out our simple recipe...

An oat-y take on p-cakes makes 'em hearty, filling, and delicious!

 

Ingredients:

1/3 cup regular oats (not instant or steel cut)

1/4 cup blueberries

3 tbsp. egg whites

1 tbsp. nonfat milk

1 tbsp. fat-free cottage cheese

1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tbsp. flour

1 no-calorie sweetener packet

2 tbsp. water

pinch salt

 

Directions:

Combine all ingredients except for the blueberries and stir until well mixed. Gently fold in blueberries. In a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray, drop batter into pan to form 3 pancakes (or 1 big pancake). Once pancakes begin to look solid (about 3 minutes), gently flip (if possible, re-spritz the pan with nonstick spray as you flip 'em to prevent sticking). Cook for approximately 3 additional minutes, or until both sides are lightly browned and insides are cooked through. Now plate those suckers and enjoy.  Serves 1. (Pssst...we like 'em drizzled with sugar-free maple syrup!)

Denny's Fabulous Fruit-Filled Pancake, Blueberry
Denny's Fabulous Fruit-Filled Pancake, Blueberry

Berry Disappointing!

Let's face it; stuffing your face with a hot fluffy pancake oozing with sweet berries is quite a decadent way to start the day.  But as tasty as that cake may be, over 600 calories for one pancake is pretty pathetic (sorry, Denny's, you know we're right).  And, if you mistakenly order and devour the entire breakfast platter, you'll be swallowing over 1,000 calories and 55 grams of fat!  Bleccchhh!  Why take chances?  Skip the p-cakes at Denny's and start flippin' 'em at home instead!
