Can you believe that it’s already springtime?  The season of blooming flowers, warmer weather, and more daylight!  Welcome. Welcome, sunshine! It’s quite comfortable outdoors.  Cool enough to need a light jacket just in case you get caught in some sprinkles, but nothing that will keep us indoors much longer. It’s time to take advantage of the lovely weather and lace up those hiking boots or get the bikes tuned-up and start exploring outdoors! When Alan and I spend our time outside we’re gone for 3 or more hours at a time. We always make sure we have water with us, but don’t always bring snacks, so it’s important to eat a good meal that will keep us satisfied for hours.

Carrot cake protein pancakes are made with a mix of oats, whole wheat flour and blended cottage cheese! Have you eaten cottage cheese pancakes before?  They’re delicious!  Even if you don’t like the taste of cottage cheese, you’ll be pleasantly surprised how tasty these protein packed pancakes are! First, the addition of spices added to the batter is so flavorful the cheesy flavor becomes undetectable. Also, I lightly sweetened the batter with Whole Earth Sweetener Baking Blend, which is a mix of high quality raw sugar and organic stevia, which add a rich sweetness to the pancakes.

Whole Earth Sweetener products are great tasting, zero and lower calorie sweeteners crafted and blended from Non-GMO ingredients. I found that you just need a little – half as much for the same sweetness as traditional sweeteners, and it has 50% fewer calories than traditional sweeteners per serving.

Before heading off to your next outdoor adventure, enjoy a plate of these carrot cake protein pancakes topped with honey yogurt! This filling breakfast can be served for brunch or your next holiday gathering as well!

      I feel the same way about excess sugar. We certainly won’t miss it if we cut down on the sweetener.

    We love pancakes but I always hate that they are so full of sugar. Getting in some veggies and protein with these is just what we need around here! Yum!!

    This looks like one delicious pancake. We don’t always think to take snacks when we head out for outdoor activities. This would be a great way to start the day.

      These pancakes really stick to your ribs with the extra protein and lower sugar. We can head out for hours before our tummies want to be refueled 🙂

    My hubby and I are starting to do some hiking in preparation for our move to Arizona. Lots of hiking there and I always forget to hydrate. I also now know the importance of having a protein rich breakfast to keep my going on the mountain! These are amazing and will be perfect before our next hike!
