Protein Cakes

Jack has been home now for almost 2 WEEKS and will be going back to work on Tuesday.
I have really enjoyed having him home for the holidays. But I am also glad that we will get back in the swing of things. Him work..Me? My eating healthy and working out!!

This morning....well AFTERNOON I wanted to make him a GOOD BREAKFAST!!!
I came across a recipe that looked not only really good but also really healthy. So I decided to make it today! You can find the Original hereMy Daily Nosh

I decided to make my own adjustment just like anyone does to any recipe. But nothing too crazy!
This is what I used..


2/3 Cup Old fashioned Oats                            
2/3 Cup Dannon Greek Yogurt With Honey
2/3 Cup Egg Beaters
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Mix the Oats in a blender. I used a small blender. Or you can use a Bullet. I did not want to use my Steel cut oats for this but you could.
Then add the baking powder and blend a bit more.
Pour out into a bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Spray your pan with PAM..Ladle mixture onto hot pan. When it starts to bubble top with bananas then flip after a minute or when the edges start to puff.
I topped mine with a Tbs of Agave. Jack used melted PB and Agave..Up to you! As you know..The more you add the more calories it adds.
I tried to figure out the calories on the recipe builder on but it was a hassle.
Regardless they are HEALTHY! Full of Protein!!!!!
I will try another program and if and when I figure it out I will add it to the Recipe page!

Blend really well but not to a powder!
You can also use egg whites!

Without honey will save you some calories
Try other Fruits

You can use any yogurt..Next time I am going to use Greek that has no honey in it. You can also use Cottage cheese but blend well! You can also add other fruits..Use your imagination. There are hundreds of variations if you really think about it!
I will have fun with this recipe!

ENJOY..We sure did!!!


  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed them! They really keep me full for quite a while :)

  2. Sounds like a good recipe!! "Protein Cakes" gave me a little shiver - until I read how yummo those things sounded! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Those look great! Thanks for sharing the recipe. My hubby and kids go back to work and school tomorrow, so I'm gearing up for my routine too. I love having them home, but I also like having my 'space'. LOL You know? I hope you have a fantastic new year, hon! *Hugs*

  4. Yum- looks great! I'm looking forward to getting back to routine, too. Have a great week! :)

  5. oh YUM! I just made these for lunch since my son got up late, lol. I used yogurt w/o honey, and added a 1/2 of vanilla extract.

    I'm trying to eat as natural as possible (as opposed to as few calories as possible), so I used 3 eggs instead of the Egg Beaters. We had some 100% natural maple syrup, so we topped it with that.

    I may do a little more experimenting, but I LOVE this recipe, thanks!
