  • 1 CUP Old Fashioned Oats
  • 3/4 CUP Egg Whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 TSP Baking Powder
  • 2 scoop Collagen Powder(Mine has 19 grams of protein) YOu can use any protein powder if you dont have dietary restrictions
  • 1/2 TSP Pure maple syrup omit if using a sweetened protein powder (or replace with your favorite sweener)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Add all your ingredients to a blender and blend on high for 60 seconds

  2. Heat a small nonstick skillet on medium low heat and spray with nonstick spray. Pour half of the batter into the pan and put the lid on the skillet.

  3. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes and check it. You should see small bubbles as well as the sides pulling away from the pan as it cooks.

  4. Loosen the sides and flip the pancake carefully. Let it cook for another couple of minutes. Tap the pancake to see if it is done. it should not feel squishy or soft.

  5. The secret is to make sure to keep that lid on at the beginning to allow the pancake too rise. The small skillet also allows the pancake to stay small and rise up instead of out, since it is a runny batter.
