Super Healthy Low Fat Pancakes Recipe

This low-fat pancake recipe was a total fluke. I started out intending to make protein pancakes from a recipe called for six egg whites, but when I opened the refrigerator, I realized that I did not have enough eggs to complete the recipe.

I had already put the oats and the cottage cheese in the blender, so I decided to adjust the recipe a bit rather than run to the store for just a few eggs. I used one whole egg instead of just the white and a little bit of applesauce to add some liquid, sweetness, and fiber to change the recipe.

I was hesitant about how this concoction would turn out, but I must say I was very happy with the results of this experiment. Topped with half a banana and little maple syrup these pancakes were not only delicious but also quite filling.

Why is a healthy breakfast important?

The body’s glycogen stores have emptied during the night, and your brain needs new energy. A healthy breakfast provides this. If you do without it, your ability to concentrate will suffer. In addition, cravings are pre-programmed, and there is the temptation to reach for high-calorie snacks before lunch.

What makes a healthy breakfast?

Eating a healthy breakfast is the best way to improve your performance in everyday life. Cereals, nuts, fruit, or vegetables provide new energy and supply your body with optimal vitamins and nutrients. If you eat bread or rolls for breakfast, it’s best to choose the whole-grain variety. Then, add some low-fat cheese or a homemade spread, sprouts, lettuce, or cucumber slices on top – delicious! That’s what makes low-fat pancakes such a great choice!

Do you prefer to eat muesli in the morning? Then mix your flakes, seeds, and nuts. This works well in stock and is healthier than the sugar-rich ready-made mixtures from the supermarket. Next, add a cup of filter coffee or tea, a glass of milk or juice, preferably freshly squeezed – the choice is yours! If you’re watching your calorie intake, choose low-fat milk and forgo the spoonful of cocoa.

If you can’t get anything down right after getting up, we recommend a healthy breakfast to go. A delicious whole-grain sandwich or fruit salad with nuts is great to take with you and enjoy later at work.

Is porridge a healthy breakfast?

We can answer this question with a resounding yes. The creamy cereal porridge is full of fiber and keeps you full for a long time. Oats also provide the body with valuable proteins and vitamins. Another plus point is that it is easy to prepare. For a classic porridge, add 40 g of rolled oats with five times the amount of liquid, e.g., milk or water, and a little salt to a pot, bring to a boil while stirring, and continue to simmer for about 3 minutes until you get a creamy consistency.

Spelled or millet flakes, quinoa, amaranth, or buckwheat also taste suitable for tasty porridge variations instead of oatmeal. You can replace cow’s milk with plant-based alternatives such as almond milk.

Once the base is ready, it’s time for the topping: chopped fruit, chopped nuts, a dollop of cream, or a spoonful of maple syrup – you can choose your topping to suit your taste. The great advantage of a warm breakfast: the cooked cereal is easy to digest and gently revs up the metabolism. Especially in winter, you’ll get an excellent start to the day with a stomach warmer like porridge.

Healthy breakfast to prepare

Even if you’re short on time in the morning, you shouldn’t miss out on a healthy breakfast. A recipe to prepare in advance is the perfect solution. Overnight Oats can be prepared the evening before and then refrigerated overnight. Mix oatmeal with milk, yogurt, fruit, and nuts and leave it covered in the refrigerator until the following day.
