Breakfast Recipe: Blueberry Protein Pancakes

I know a few of my lad mates who read my blog every now and then have been awaiting this recipe - and now here it is! I got this from ProteinPow, an awesome website for tasty recipes using protein powders whether they be whey, soy, vegan - you name it! :)
Here's the original recipe, although I made some tweaks to it so it would fit in with what I already had at home. I've been making this quite a lot when I don't have work, and it's such a nice treat to myself without all of the guilt that normally comes with super-tasty food!
Ingredients:
1/2 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
3/4 cup oats
3 egg whites
a handful blueberries
First whack all of the ingredients in a bowl. The oats I used were just cheap porridge oats I found in B&M but it has seeds in it which makes them even healthier! Yummy. After that it's literally a case of using a hand blender or a food processor to make the pancake batter.
I always use Fry-Light whenever I have to use a frying pan. It's a 1 calorie spray and is a great alternative to frying things without so much fat from oil. Spray the bottom of the pan a couple of times, and put the hob on a low heat - too high and they'll cook too quickly and be soggy on the inside!
Once they've cooked just add some fat free greek yogurt and some strawberries and blueberries and voila! With the ladle I used, the mixture only made two pancakes, but you could probably get three or four smaller ones out of it! :)

You could probably miss out the protein powder if you didn't have any, and replace it with more oats although I haven't tested it out so you'll have to let me know if you do! :)
