Prickly Pear Twin Tower Pancakes









     Ok so, ... I have two things to tell you ... First, I am THRILLED to try a new fruit that was in my Bountiful Basket ( didn't know what it was at first), the Prickly Pear!  And second, we were out of Egg Whites ( The Hubs used the last of them and forgot to tell "momma" we were out ... which is a big no no in our house ...  :/  ) ... sooo, I used a WHOLE EGG ( insert gasp while taking a step back and raising your bent knuckle to teeth ...).  WOW, I forgot how luscious a yolk can be and what rich flavor and moisture it adds.  So, in conclusion, you can use 1/4 cup Egg Whites OR take a walk on the wild side and use the whole stinkin EGG ... YOLO ... !!!  .... sooooo glad Thu Hubs had an Egg White Omelette for breakfast ... heeheehee ... joke is on him ... ( cat that ate the canary grin )!!!   Super Duper Macros at 294 calories, 8.7g net carbs, and 45g protein  ;)

Ingredients~
1 Prickly Pear, skinned and diced ( seeds are edible but skin is not, FYI ... don't learn the hard way)
1 scoop plus 1 Tablespoon Isothority Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Almond Milk ( 30 cal/cup)
1 Egg or 1/4 cup Egg Whites
1/4 cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
Dash Cinnamon
Dash Vanilla

     Skin and dice Prickly Pear, set aside.  Mix 1 Tablespoon Protein Powder and 1 Tablespoon Almond Milk, set in fridge to chill.  Meanwhile, mix 1 scoop Protein Powder, 1 Egg, 1/4 cup Cottage Cheese, dash Cinnamon and Vanilla in Magic Bullet til well fluffed.  Spray nonstick skillet with Butter Pam and pour batter in skillet into 6 pancakes and cook til golden brown on each side.  Stack in two piles on plate and top with Protein Powder Frosting, and garnish with Pear pieces.  Enjoy  these melt in your mouth pancakes  ;)
