Strawberry Protein Pancake Roll-Ups with Yogurt Filling

I have never been a big sweets eater but on rare occasion I wake up in the morning and I just need a fix. A couple Sundays ago I awoke with such a craving and I hurriedly rushed to my Pinterest "Skinny" food board in desperate need of finding something healthy and sweet.

Katie Farrell at Dashing Dish didn't disappoint.

I now present you with Strawberry Protein Pancake Roll-Ups with Yogurt Filling!


1/4 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt
1/2 scoop (or 1/8 cup) plain or vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites
1/2 cup oats (regular old fashioned oats, or gluten free if sensitive)
1/4 cup strawberries, chopped (about 2 large strawberries)
1/8 cup water
3-5 packets of stevia (or sweetener to taste, I like mine pretty sweet since they are a sweet crepe!)

Yogurt Filling:
1/2 cup low fat Greek yogurt (or you could use low fat cottage cheese, purred in a blender until smooth)
2 tbs strawberry jam, (or you could dice or crush some strawberries really fine and mix into the yogurt)


  1. Put all of the ingredients for the pancakes in a blender and blend until smooth! 
  2. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick griddle (or large nonstick skillet) coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Spoon 1/2 of the batter (if making 2 large pancakes) OR 1/4 of the batter (if making 4 smaller pancakes) onto pre-heated griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Remove from griddle when both sides are cooked, and place pancakes on a serving plate. 
  3. To make the filling, simply mix Greek yogurt (or cottage cheese puree) with jam (or diced/crushed strawberries) and sweetener in a small bowl. Divide filling between pancakes, and roll pancakes up around filling. Place roll-ups on plate seam-side down so they stay rolled, or secure with a toothpick! Serve with strawberries, low sugar jam, or low sugar maple syrup if desired!
