Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are a family-friendly breakfast staple for a reason: Not only are they delicious, but they're easy to whip up in a pinch. As a healthy alternative to starchy, white flapjacks, I came up with this energizing Protein Pancake recipe. It's made with egg whites, which deliver a generous dose of high-quality protein to rev your system and fire up your brain power. The other star ingredient is fiber-rich, whole-grain oats, which provide a slow, steady stream of carbs to give you a substantial mental boost.
