Strawberry Protein Pancakes w/ Yogurt Filling

Here's the Dish

These pancake roll-ups are a mix between a crepe and a pancake! They turned out almost like a fluffy version of a crepe, so I thought, why not call them ‘pancake roll-ups!’ The sweetness of the strawberries make these pancake roll-ups taste like dessert! The best part is, these pancakes are packed with protein and healthy whole grains (no flour!)… So, although they are sweet enough to be dessert, they are healthy enough to have for breakfast!!! Sounds like the perfect sweet breakfast to share with your sweetie this Valentine’s Day if you ask me!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 15-20 Minutes.

1

Put all of the ingredients for the pancakes in a blender and blend until smooth!

2

Meanwhile, heat a nonstick griddle (or large nonstick skillet) coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Spoon 1/2 of the batter (if making 2 large pancakes) OR 1/4 of the batter (if making 4 smaller pancakes) onto pre-heated griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Remove from griddle when both sides are cooked, and place pancakes on a serving plate.

3

To make the filling, simply mix Greek yogurt (or cottage cheese puree) with jam (or diced/crushed strawberries) and sweetener in a small bowl. Divide filling between pancakes, and roll pancakes up around filling. Place roll-ups on plate seam-side down so they stay rolled, or secure with a toothpick! Serve with strawberries, low sugar jam, or low sugar maple syrup if desired! Enjoy!

Ingredients

For Pancake Roll-ups:
1/4 cup Low fat plain greek yogurt (I used Chobani™)
1/2 scoop Plain or vanilla protein powder (my protein powder is 100 calories per 1/4 cup scoop)
1/2 tsp Baking powder
2Egg whites
1/2 cup Oats (regular old fashioned oats, or gluten free if sensitive)
1/4 cup Strawberries, chopped (about 2 large strawberries)
1/8 cup Water
3-5 pktsStevia (or sweetener to taste)
For Yogurt Filling:
1/2 cup Low fat Greek yogurt (I used Chobani™)1
2 tbs Low sugar strawberry jam
1-2 pktsStevia (or sweetener to taste)

1 Or you could use low fat cottage cheese, purred in a blender until smooth.

Just made these! They are delicious, Katie. I might even try them with a little PB2 spread on them to do a “peanut butter jelly” type variation. Next up: your chocolate cake!

These look 1000% fabulous. Growing up in an English family, I’m not a fan of traditional cakey fluffy pancakes, but always crepes. These look like they would fulfill my crepe desires!

I tried these this morning, sans the protein powder (didn’t have any!) and a few other changes (like adding no sugar, but using vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt) and they were SIMPLY AMAZING! I’m passing this recipe on to everyone I know, and it’s going to become a regular in my kitchen! Thank you so much!

I tried these this morning, but didn’t have any strawberries so I used thawed frozen blueberries in the batter instead. Turned out a pretty purplish-blue color that looked great with the pink yogurt filling (and not to mention they tasted delicious)!

Quick question about the nutritional information… I just want to verify whether the nutritional information is per pancake or per serving. I’m just a little confused by the way it’s listed as two pancakes per serving, but then the info appears to be listed as per pancake? I think? :)

Thank you, I cannot wait to make these, they look incredibly good.

I am lactose intolerant, so I replaced the Greek yogurt in the batter with vanilla Coconut yogurt, and the filling with Strawberry Soy yogurt. Delicious!

I was wondering if another fruit could be used instead of strawberries? I love strawberries but was wondering if there was something else I could use to mix it up? Also, could I make the pancake roll-ups without the strawberry or any other fruit in the batter?
