Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I usually have a bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and half a banana and a big glass of milk, a protein shake, or my favorite. PANCAKES! Yet usually after you've made your batter, cooked them till golden brown, slathered them in butter and ooey gooey maple syrup, your already at 600 calories for breakfast. That's half my daily intake allowance (not cool). I surfed the web for hours the other day because I needed to find something that was still healthy, but as delicious as a normal wholesome stack of pancakes. I came across a bunch of oatmeal gluten-free pancakes, pancakes without sugar, and flour, and the possibilities were endless. So I decided on these (which in turn were fantabulous)
- 1 1/4 cup Old Fashioned Quaker Oats
- 1 1/4 cup Skim Milk
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 Tbsp light olive oil
- 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- In a medium bowl, mix oats with milk, let stand 5 minutes.
- Add in egg and oil, and mix.
- Add dry ingredients until just well blended
- Drop by 1/4 cup measurements and flatten out a bit
- Cook on hot nonstick skillet or pancake griddle until brown
- Flip and cook until lightly golden
- Top with whatever you like (not including in nutritional value)
** I like to add peanut butter and 1 mashed banana to my pancakes sometimes, they taste super good and are jam packed with loads of protein :) Also try using a sugar free syrup
