Protein Packed Blueberry Banana Pancakes

I have a new recipe that I must share with you, I am obssessed lately. Seriously, I have eaten this or Greek Cheesecake for the last 2 weeks straight almost daily! Ha!

The first is my new favorite meal: Protein Packed Banana Pancakes (inspired by www.fitfoodiele.com check her out, she is awesome!)

*0.33 cup oats
*0.5 med banana (either fresh or frozen)
*0.33 cup egg whites
(Sometimes I like to add 3 pecan halves to each pancake once they are started on the griddle!)
Blend in blender. (I like to only add about half the oats, then whirl the last half just to stir. I like the texture. You can also leave out the oats ALL TOGETHER and save 99 cals!) Cook on nonstick service over medium heat approx 2 min per side. Makes 3 medium pancakes

Topping (Trust me, this MAKES this recipe special)
Microwave about 0.33 cups of blueberries (I use frozen for ease) for 90 sec until thickened and syrup-y.
IF you have Walden's Farms 0 cal syrup, mix a little in. It is really good with the berries, but not neccessary. Pour over pancakes. Then top with 4 oz (1/2 c) Fage 0% Greek Yogurt. Enjoy!
