Protein Pancakes & Balsamic Glaze

Eat like you love your body today!  Happy Valentines Day to everyone!!  Whether you are celebrating with you special one or your little kiddos like me you will likely have a choice of healthy versus not so healthy today.

I chose a healthier option today to show my body the love rather tear it up with too much sugar and fat.  Instead of topping the pancakes with chocolate syrup I opted for a delish balsamic glaze, yummy sweet and a little tangy!!

Our celebratory breakfast was Protein Pancakes with mixed berries and a Balsamic Glaze.

Protein Pancakes

1 scoop Vanilla Shakeology

2 T low fat cottage cheese

2 egg whites

2 tsp unsweetened almond milk

dash cinnamon & cloves

 

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.  Scoop small portions onto hot non stick griddle and cook approx 2 minutes per side.

Balsamic Glaze

1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar

Bring to a boil over medium heat in a small not stick pot, reduce to simmer.  Allow to simmer approx 10 minutes, checking and swirling in pot.  As the liquid evaporates it will become thicker.  Remove from heat and let cool.  As it sits it will become thicker.

 

Top pancakes with mixed berries (sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries) and balsamic glaze.
