Cinnamon Vanilla Protein Pancakes

So for over a year my husband and I have enjoyed these amazing protein pancakes/ waffles from the Trim Health Mama cookbook. Basically, it is a high protein pancake that doesn’t have all the processed carbohydrates in it.  It has over 20 grams of protein a serving and they are delicious.  The only problem is my husband likes them as pancakes and I like them as waffles.  You can top them with some sugar-free syrup like we do or you can add 100% maple syrup if you would rather.  With the addition of vanilla and doTERRA cinnamon, these are out of this world.  We have these at least 5 times a week and they can be made ahead of time and heated up.  Or make the batter ahead of time like I do, the cinnamon flavor only intensifies after time.

Cinnamon Vanilla Protein Pancakes



1 cup of oatmeal

1 cup of 2% cottage cheese

1 cup of egg whites

1 tbl sweetener (I use something similar to Truvia)

2 tsp. of aluminum free baking powder

1/2 tbl of vanilla

4 drops of doTERRA cinnamon bark

  1. Add all the ingredients to a high powered blender and blend for one minute.
  2. Make sure you remove the batter from any plastic blender cup immediately since the cinnamon is strong and can leach into the plastic.
  3. Make your pancakes or waffles.  ENJOY! 

Keep in mind if you decide to keep the batter to store it in a glass bowl in the refrigerator because essential oils are powerful and leach into plastic.

Keep in mind that if you use Cinnamon Bark oil topically it needs to be diluted with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil.  One of the best ways to take cinnamon bark oil is internally.  Try it in your tea or coffee.
