Any recipe that sneaks greens into breakfast—a meal that historically lacks greens—is a winner in our book. Think of these as zucchini bread in a pancake shape, without the high sugar count number. Topped with blueberries, a drizzle of honey and cottage cheese for an extra hit of calcium and protein. This diet-stuffed breakfast will maintain your power high all morning long.
