Cinnamon Banana Pancake Rollups

Not your typical pancakes, but these were a delicious twist to the usual. I based this recipe off of Kim's recipe, but I switched up some of the flavors and ingredients. With oatmeal as the pancake base and cottage cheese as the filling, these pancakes are full of complex carbohydrates and protein- perfect start to the day.

Cinnamon Banana Pancake Rollups


Ingredients:

Pancakes:

- 1/3 cup raw oats
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1 T mashed banana
- 4-5 drops vanilla stevia drops (or regular stevia to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon butter extract
- Cinnamon

Filling:

- 1/3 cup cottage cheese
- 1 tablespoon vanilla whey protein
- 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum (or 1/2 teaspoon flour)
- 3 drops vanilla stevia

Topping:

-1/2 banana
- Cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon sugar free syrup


Directions:

1. Blend together the oats, egg whites, banana, stevia, butter extract, and cinnamon.

2. Preheat a medium size, non-stick pan over medium heat. Coat with cooking spray. Pour batter into the pan. You want the batter to spread out nice and thin. Cook for about two minutes each side.

3. To make the filling blend together the cottage cheese, 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum (or flour), and the stevia. Spread the filling over the pancake and roll up. Cut roll up in half.

4. To make the topping. Slice about 1/2 banana and add to a small pan coated with cooking spray. Cook over medium heat until the banana begins to soften, add cinnamon and about 1 T sugar free syrup. Cook about 30 seconds (keep stirring). Top your pancake rollup with the banana mixture.

5.  DEVOUR.
