Oatmeal Pancakes

Note: I took step-by-step pictures while making these and then deleted them by mistake. Ughhh. So next time I make them I will take pictures and upload them for you all.

This morning, I decided to cook up some oatmeal pancakes for breakfast and thought I would share the recipe with you. These are so yummy and very filling!

Oatmeal Pancakes

SUPPLIES
  • 1/3 cup quick oats

  • 1/3 cup egg whites

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  • Cinnamon to taste

  • Optional: 1/2 mashed up banana or 2 tbsp. canned pumpkin

  • Optional: Toppings (see below)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Mix together quick oats, egg whites, baking powder, vanilla and cinnamon in a bowl.
Optional: add 1/2 mashed banana or 2 tbsp. pumpkin to mixture. Let mixture sit for a couple minutes.

2. Preheat a skillet over medium heat, spray with non-stick spray, and pour batter into it and shape into a pancake with a spoon.

3. Cook for approx. 3 mins. When you can shake it around in the pan, it’s time to flip over.

4. Cook an additional 1-2 mins until cooked through.

5. Remove from skillet and top with syrup, peanut butter, canned pumpkin, or mashed banana . We topped ours with mashed bananas and peanut butter.

The above recipe makes one large pancake. I make the mixture for each one as I cook them. Perhaps you could multiple the recipe and make more at a time, but it works for me to make them one at a time as some of us like them with bananas and some with pumpkin.

Today I also tried something new and I think I like it better this way. I grinded up my oats before mixing them with the other ingredients. This made the oats into more of a flour texture. You can do it either way but I think I will do it this way from now on.

Enjoy!

Here's to a healthier you,
Shelly
