Banana walnut pancakes



I found this recipe in Self magazine (again, I suggest you check out their website. Lots of free stuff without a subscription). I forgot to add the walnuts in mine but they were awesome just the same.

This was super easy to whip up in the morning but you can always prepare it the night before and put it in the fridge to heat up the next morning. All you need is:
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons lowfat cottage cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons lowfat plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Blend the first four ingredients (I use my magic bullet!) and then stir in the chopped walnuts. Over medium-high spray with cooking spray (or use coconut oil) and pour half the mixture and cook until bubbly on the surface and flip over. Repeat with the remaining batter. I liked small pancakes so I did mine in 1/4 batches.
