I have a special treat for you guys today (Be sure to read the whole post!) If you’ve been paying attention in my toddler meals posts, you probably know that we’re breakfast creatures of habit around here. Now, I’m totally fine with that, but it is fun to change things up every once and a while. So when my friend and fellow RD Katie from Mom’s Kitchen Handbook reached out to me to check out her new cookbook, I jumped at the chance when I realized it was ALL ABOUT BREAKFAST!
Rise And Shine: Better Breakfasts for Busy Moms (affiliate link) is packed with 75 super easy breakfast recipes that all sound phenomenal. In this digital world, it’s been a while since I looked through a physical cookbook but I definitely spent some time tagging some recipes to try in this one.
A few that immediately caught my eye were:

PB Waffle Iron Sandwich
Milk & Cereal Bars
A Green Smoothie (even the kids will love)
Actually I pretty much wanted to try all of them, so huge congrats to Katie for writing such a phenomenal cookbook….but these Barely Banana Protein Pancakes were the first recipe I tried. And they were a huge hit! They’re similar to my Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes but with a little bit different twist.
Squish and I both loved them and Katie’s been kind enough to let me share the recipe with you guys!
Here’s how you make them:Print
Barely Banana Protein Pancakes
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup oats
- 1 1/3 cup cottage cheese
- 1 small ripe banana
- oil or butter for greasing skillet
- blueberries for topping, optional
- Combine eggs, oats, cottage and banana in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a greased skillet and cook like regular pancakes.
- (I made about 18 silver dollar sized pancakes)
I added some cinnamon to mine…and instead of syrup, I just defrosted some frozen blueberries and smashed them up to make a sauce!
Now, did you note that these pancakes require a blender? Well here’s the good news. We have a blender to give away to one of you! And not just any blender….A Nutri Ninja!
