Diet Friendly Blender Pancakes from the Biggest Loser

Biggest loser pancakes |

I have a love for pancakes and if you follow my blog at all you will see several different recipes for pancakes. It seemed only natural for me to try this low carbohydrate, low fat, gluten free version from the popular show “The Biggest Looser”. I think I got motivated to try these after coming home from the gym and one of my friends at the gym who I haven’t seen in a while said they were wondering who that skinny girl was, meaning me. Well, I’m not skinny more like healthy, but it felt good and made me want to eat healthier, since I eat plenty of junk and sweets. Although I have been working out very regularly for 6 weeks I haven’t really cut out the junk, so I’m going to make more of an effort to do so, since I could stand to shed a few pounds. As far as pancakes go these pancakes were pretty darn good for the low-fat version. I liked the taste and texture of them and with just a tablespoon of low calorie syrup and a few raspberries and I was one happy camper. I will definitely be making these pancakes over and over again and not feel one bit guilty by eating them. I hope you try out these diet friendly blender pancakes and like them as much as I did.

I’ve been on such an oatcake kick lately! I love that I can have pancakes that are actually good for me! Awesome!
And yes, that Biggest Loser can be so motivating. Just love it.

Both of my kids LOVE pancakes (they might have inherited that gene from me….) and I love the ingredients. Printed for this weekend!! And gorgeous photos btw…

Yum, I’m giving these a try for sure Suzanne, they sound wonderful! I’m a sucker for pancakes but rarely make them as I always eat too many! I have everything to make these right now ………. hmmmmm 🙂

I love a guilt-free breakfast, these look delish, especially with the raspberry topping!

Oh how delicious! And you made this with rolled oats? That’s just awesome ! Thanks for sharing the recipe ~ I must try this healthy blender pancakes soon.

It’s so hard to cut out the junk and sweets, I know! But maybe, just like me, you can eat healthy for the week, then indulge sensibly on the weekends? But then, if pancakes look like this – and are healthy – then you won’t have a problem sticking to a healthy eating regime! Awesome recipe, Suzanne! So…you didn’t take a break from exercising while on vacation? Good on you!

It’s so hard to resist junk food! Maybe I could be “slightly” healthier – if I had these pancakes to help kick-start my mornings. 😉

Cottage cheese, huh? Never had that in a pancake before. I have a similar problem; I work out consistently but haven’t cut out all the junk. I need to be better!

They look yummy! Thanks for sharing a healthy pancake recipe and welcome home from Hawaii 😉

When I think of pancakes I don’t think of healthy. You’ve won me over — they look wonderful.

14 Erin @ Texanerin Baking March 8, 2013 at 8:09 am

Oooh! Love this! I also put cottage cheese in my pancakes. 🙂 Funny thing is, I detest cottage cheese and you could never get me to eat it. Unless it’s in pancakes! And healthy eating. Yup. I need to start doing that…

Mmmm I love this 😀
Breakfast the healthy way!

I like this recipe. I don’t make pancakes very often because I tend to feel guilty after eating them but I can really go for this lighter version. Really like the oats in it. 🙂

Welcome back!

it is amazing that these can be good for you and not have all the bad stuff in them. They look just like the traditional ones. These are a winner and a must make!

Such pretty photos, Suzanne. I never have good luck with pancake photos. Love the oats and never thought of them in my pancakes and now can’t wait to try it!
