What’s for breakfast? If you’re trying to lose weight, it may feel like you’re stuck eating the same bland, boring, low-calorie meal day after day. This morning, try something different! These protein-packed, homemade pancakes can be whipped up quickly with a whole-wheat pancake mix, fiber-rich (and filling) quick oats and egg whites. Replace sticky, thick syrup with reduced-sugar strawberry jam for sweetness without all the extra calories.

Pancakes are a special Saturday or Sunday morning treat for families too busy to fuss with “homemade” on hectic weekday mornings. This recipe lets you enjoy a stack without the junk that fills frozen or “quick mix” varieties—but that’s not all. These Flax Jacks were created especially for my diabetic dad, Mac, who desperately missed the amazing taste of many of his favorite foods when they became off limits after his quadruple bypass surgery in 2010.
Saturday mornings wouldn’t be the same without pancakes! This weekend, skip the super-sweet syrup and serve these crispy, rich Coconut Corn Cakes with a side of your favorite nut butter. No milk or eggs are needed, and a scoop of protein powder added to the batter makes a delicious and healthy breakfast treat.
If you’ve got some extra brown rice leftover from last night’s stir-fry dinner, today’s breakfast is going to be a breeze! Stir in a scoop of almond butter, some applesauce, a pinch of cinnamon and a few other simple ingredients for a delightful, belly-warming bowl of porridge. Top with fresh berries for added antioxidants and sweetness.
The holiday season may be on its way out, but the color green is here to stay! Blend up a banana-berry smoothie, then toss in a handful of veggies, some chia seeds and a scoop of vegan protein powder for a revitalizing, nutrient-packed drink.
Oatmeal is a filing and healthy breakfast that’s easy to prepare, but it can get boring when the same ingredients are used to make every bowl. Jazz up your next batch with two simple additions—one of which you probably already have on hand.
