These are really for breakfast? Indeed, they are! There are fresh blueberries that are blended into the pancake batter and a low sugar blueberry jam that I used as the syrup. Blueberry galore :) They will start your day off right with a whopping 38g protein and only 13g sugar in the entire dish! Compare that to IHOP's strawberry pancakes that has only 18g protein and 27g of sugar - I think we know the winner here. Enjoy!
½ scoop vanilla protein powder
1/3 cup oat flour
2 egg whites
¼ cup almond milk
¼ cup blueberries
1 tablespoon cashew butter
¾ cup blueberries
2 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup
¼ scoop vanilla protein powder

1. Heat a skillet on the stovetop over medium heat.
2. In a blender or food processor, blend together egg whites, ¼ cup almond milk, ¼ cup blueberries and cashew butter until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl.
3. Add ½ scoop protein powder and oat flour to the mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.
4. Spoon about ¼ cup of the pancake mix onto the skillet, making 5 pancakes total, and cook on each side about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
5. For the jam, heat ¾ cup blueberries and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes.
6. For the glaze, stir together ¼ scoop protein powder and 2 tablespoons almond milk until smooth.
