If you’re looking for a healthy, protein-packed breakfast that will fuel your workouts, our super popular collection of 5 Mouthwatering Egg White Oatmeal Recipes have helped athletes switch up their morning routine while staying healthy. Egg white oatmeal is excellent stuff: it’s made up almost exclusively of pure protein and slow digesting carbs, which means this meal will provide your muscles with energy for hours, and sustain you during a serious workout. However, no matter how good it is for you, eating a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast every morning can get really, deeply boring. One solution? Throw that stuff on the griddle: by turning your egg white oatmeal into pancakes, you can give fresh life to a great breakfast staple.

Get creative with your toppings! Pancakes don’t necessarily mean butter and maple syrup. Try out sliced bing cherries with slivered almonds, peaches with Greek yogurt, or salted almond butter with strawberries. You can also try making your pancakes savory by removing the sweeteners, and topping with baby kale sautéed in garlic and olive oil, guacamole and fresh tomato, or dots of goat cheese with chopped jalapeños and chives. (Never have time in the morning for any of this stuff? You might want to check out 10 Healthy Breakfast Recipes You Can Make the Night Before).
