Do you want a breakfast that can help you get leaner? Any fitness fiend will tell you it’s time to up the fiber and protein, which is what these pancakes are all about! I decided to call these super simple pancakes Bodybuilder Pancakes because the main 2 ingredients are the basis of every bodybuilder’s breakfast: oats and egg whites. Why? You need those complex carbs, you need lean protein and these are the perfect post-workout refuel meal.
This recipe is super easy. Just rolled oats and egg whites buzzed up in your blender, poured into a pan and topped with nutrient-rich ingredients such as fresh or frozen berries, Greek yogurt, fresh mint and lemon zest.
If you’re counting your macros (short form for macronutrients, which includes grams of carbohydrates, protein and fat) this recipe fits easily. Just count the carbs in 1 cup of berries and use the rest for the oats. Your protein will come from the egg whites and dollop of Greek yogurt.
Pure love in every bite <3
These bodybuilder pancakes are gluten-free (be sure to choose gluten-free oats if you have Celiac disease) and loaded with protein and fiber to keep you full longer.

You can use this recipe to make smaller pancakes but I love having one big one to dive into. It takes less time which I’m all about!
