SNAP Challenge – Day 3: Breakfast

Decided to get pretty crazy and switch up my breakfast today. Went with an old classic bodybuilder-like recipe, oat pancakes. (After my 4 cups of water of course)

2 eggs, 2 egg whites, 3/4 cup oats, 1 T cottage cheese, 1 banana, dash of cinnamon – blend and fry. 

Blend all ingredients

Make like pancakes...

Make like pancakes…

5 stack of 4-5" pancakes

5 stack of 4-5″ pancakes

First things first, you could eat these with sugar free syrup – 0 calories. I decided to try them plain…then added the syrup.

Breakfast Stats:

Prep Time: 8 minutes (would’ve been much shorter if I hada griddle or a bigger pan, I only could make one pancake at a time.)

Calories: 508 (this was too high and I could barely finish the meal, next time id take one egg out, use half a banana and only 1/2 cup of oats)

Carbs: 69 grams

Fat: 13 grams

Protein: 33 grams

As I just stated, this was TOO MUCH food! I won’t be needing a snack between now and lunch, thats for sure. If I made the previously stated changes, it only would have been 311 calories, much more feasible for a smaller person or someone trying to lose weight.  By the end of writing this, I’ve actually acquired a wee bit of a stomach ache…food coma commence…
