Protein Packed Pancakes

Delicious Low Carb Protein Pancakes
-1 scoop of your favorite smoothie powder
   (I use Shakeology Pro7ein or Cytosine 100% Whey)
-3 egg whites
   (from eggs or the egg whites in cartons)
-2 oz of your favorite low sugar yogurt
  (My faves are the Carbmaster brand
   from Ralphs or Food 4 Less but Greek 
   works well too)
1. Put all of the ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Make pancakes in a pan as usual and serve.
3. It's that easy! That's it ;)
You can add the other ingredients such as bananas, oats, peanut butter, nuts, etc if you'd like but I'm trying to eat low carb so I stick with the Ralphs Carbmaster yogurts, egg whites and low carb protein ;-)
I make a large batch of these on the beginning of the week,  refrigerate them and snack on them throughout the week when I'm craving sweets, bread or carbs in general.
You can choose any protein flavor you like but vanilla tends to work best. I've also tried chocolate,  cookies & cream and strawberry.  All are yummy but vanilla is my fave! Serve them to your whole family. My daughter ♥s them!  In the batch above I made 6 batches (6 scoops of protein, 1 1/2 yogurts & 18 egg whites). It's easier to do all at once for the week with a newborn & makes plenty to have on hand for the family. My husband grabs one on his way out to work and my daughter and I love to eat pieces throughout the day.
