If some of you guys like to stay low carb/high protein, but miss pancakes and waffles, then i have discovered the best recipe!! it's a crepe recipe, and the recipe is for ONE serving... it makes 6 crepes for only 182 cals!! I have made them the past two days and have topped them with fat free strawberry yogurt and with ff cool whip mixed with vanilla yogurt and 'vanilla butter nut' extract. delicious!! i also added banana extract to the batter and it was just like banana nut. top with a little sugar free syrup and you have an awesome breakfast. okay anyways, here's the recipe:

Fresh and Lean Crepes

1/4 cup nonfat cottage cheese
2 Tbls. plain oatmeal
6 egg whites
vanilla to taste
packet of splenda
cinnamon if you want

-Blend in a blender for 30 secs. This makes two cups of batter. spray small skillet or pan with pam. To make six crepes, put 1/3 c. in pan at a time. when you add the crepe swirl it around in the pan to coat evenly. very carefully, flip and cook on other side. since it takes a while to cook them all, keep a plate in a 250 degree oven and keep the cooked crepes in there with a pot lid covering them. If you want to make a yummy topping to make it around a 250 cal breakfast, make this (highly worth the 50/60 extra cals):

2 Tbls. cottage cheese
3 Tbls. ff cool whip
1 Tbls. any flavor ff yogurt you want(i used vanilla)
any extract you want ( i used vanilla butter nut)

Blend in blender and refrigerate while making crepes. spoon into cooked crepes and roll up.

182 cals for all 6 crepes
around 50/60 pts for topping(depending on yogurt used)

Try these ! They rock!!

Hey Suzanne...
(and all the rest of you out there!)

Check out the Ladies who Lift Recipe thread...we have a LOT of variations on the Protein Pancake recipe...including Mel's "TOM Brownie Pancake" (chocolate flavored of course).

I have a protein pancake for breakfast each morning...yummers...
