Chocolate Protein Pancakes

When in Rome.........
Here I am in Rome visiting my husband's family. My way of eating is very strange to them. They drown all vegetables in olive oil while cooking them within an inch of their lives, put cheese on everything and eat tons of carbs (like I needed to mention that last part).
When I first met my husband and I would offer to cook at Christamstime but they would never let me. I am sure they thought "what does this skinny American girl know about cooking?". Since I have been coming here for 7 years now and cooking my own food they have tried a few things. Turns out they actually enjoy my food "senza olio" but still think eating raw vegetables and eggs for breakfast is "strano".
This morning I made my usual Protein Pancakes but added chocolate vegan protein to appeal to the Italians.
Here is the recipe for 6:
12 egg whites
2 cups of oats
2 scoops of chocolate protein
1/2 cup of almond milk
Mix it all up in the blender and cook in a non-stick pan.
Each pancake has: protein 11 gms, carbohydrates 25 gms and fat 3 gms.
If you are in my Shape Up program this would be perfect for breakfast with a side of 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt. It is 1 fruit, 1 starchy carb and 1 lean protein.
