Cinnamon and Casein Pancakes

My delicious treat for breakfast!

I've been in full effect with training for my first NPC show, this is one of my STAPLES. I eat this every morning....Thanks to Kaitlyn Blair (my teammate).
Usually Casein, is a type of protein that should be taken right before bedtime, but what the heck....I like to add it into my morning pancakes. It's so delicious! I have not eaten ANY SUGAR and won't eat any sugar, so this is considered my "sugary treat".  They are great pancakes and don't even need butter or syrup!

Just a yummy little "flat stack" to start the day!
Ingredients:
3/4 Cup egg whites
1 C. Spinach or 6 large asparagus spears (the asparagus can be cooked OR raw)
3-4 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 C. oats
1/2 scoop Chocolate Casein powder or whey powder
1 tsp. baking powder
Mix everything up in a blender. I use my Blendtec Blender and just puree everything.
Once pureed, I slap the contents on a 375 preheated and "pam"ed up griddle.

Cook as normal pancakes.Watch for bubbles...etc.
I make 5-6 small pancakes. Whatever size you want.

Mason will even eat these! Kid-approved! 
AWESOME!

(**also, you can add some simple mix-ins. For example, you can add 1/2-1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, you can add 1 tsp cocoa powder or even nutmeg.--Those are some simple ways to create a delicious NON-sugary pancake breakfast)

I absolutely LOVE these! Megan had me substitute the Casine with 1 tsp coco powder and 12 cherries (I am dairy free). Absolutely delicious!
