Coconut Macadamia Buttermilk Protein Pancakes

Whew, that's a mouthful!  And you'll want mouthful after mouthful of these little guys.  They are delicious and a great way to get in that RDA (and more if you are in some sort of training program) of protein.

Here's how I did it today:

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup egg whites
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup macadamia pieces, ground
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2-3 tbsp low fat buttermilk

In your blender, chop macadamia nuts.  Add remaining ingredients (starting with 2 tbsp buttermilk) and blend until it forms a batter consistency.  Add additional buttermilk if batter is too thick.

Drop onto your heated skillet and cook like you would traditional pancake mix.  These have a nice little sweetness to them so not too much syrup is needed.  I love maple though, so I had to have some with mine.

For the hubs - with a little chicken breakfast sausage:
