Well as you can see I got stuck on the oats pancake recipes! This batch was super good and super yummy. I’ve added Whey protein for that extra protein punch and a banana plus fructose to sweeten things up a bit. As with any eating clean diet you can really only eat so much oats and egg whites for breakfast, this is a great alternative for that once in a while treat, quilt free off course! The Whey Protein powder is optional and won’t make any difference to your pancakes as per the previous blog entry. I’ve used Chocolate Whey Protein powder but you could use Vanilla flavor too. The pancakes tend to brown very quick and because I’m no food expert I will guess that it could be from either the fructose or the Whey protein powder in the batter, simply cook them on a lower heat. Add some healthy fat in the form of peanut butter and enjoy with a cup of coffee for a great breakfast after that power workout!
1 Cup fat-free milk / water
3/4 cup Uncooked Oats
1 cup Oatmeal Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbs Fructose
4 Large eggs whites
1 small banana mashed
2 scoops of Whey protein powder (Optional)
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
Heat the milk or water until hot. Stir in the oats and set aside. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Mix the remaining dry ingredients together and stir into the oatmeal and milk mixture. Mix in the mashed banana and the egg whites until mixture is well blended. Spray a pan with nonstick spray and cook the pancakes until browned on both sides. If the batter is a bit thick simply add a little milk or water.

If you have time on hand this Easter Weekend than do yourself a favour and try this recipe.
You won’t believe how good it taste considering the fact that this a low GI recipe. I love this recipe because it makes only 6 pancakes, although I normally get 10 out of the batter since I like my pancakes a bit thinner. Feel free to double the batter, personally I just don’t like the temptation of having to face a mountain of pancakes when I was only supposed to eat 2!
They taste just as great with a savory filling for a light meal and it’s perfect for the kids lunch boxes.
For 6 Pancakes
5 ml Macadamia or canola oil
1.25 ml white vinegar
190 ml Cake flour
1.25 ml salt
60 ml Oat bran
250 ml low-fat milk
5 ml baking powder
Mix the egg, oil and vinegar together.
Sift the Cake flour, baking powder and salt together, add the oatbran and mix through.
Mix together the dry ingredients with the egg mixture and the milk in 3 parts. Mix thoroughly after each addition.
The batter should be resting for 5 – 10 minutes to ensure that the oatbran rehydrated, add a little more milk if the batter is too thick.
Fry your pancakes in a hot pan with a little oil and sprinkle with Cinnamon sugar.
