Oatmeal Pancake Recipe

Oatmeal Pancakes

  • 1/3 cup Quaker quick oats*
  • 1/3 cup egg whites (the kind in the carton is best since there's no onion powder in it like EggBeaters - ewwww)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Optional: 1/2 a mashed banana or 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • Toppings to taste!
*You can use any amount of oats/whites - 1/4 a cup of each (~100 calories) or 1/3 or 1/2 cup each (~200 calories).
  • Mix together oats and egg whites with baking powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a bowl. Optional: add half a mashed banana to the batter.
  • Preheat a skillet, spray with non-stick spray, and pour your batter in while shaping it into a large disc "pancake" with a spoon.
  • When you can shake it around in the pan, it's time to flip.
  • Once cooked through, top with syrup, peanut butter, canned pumpkin, fresh fruit or my personal favorite - mashed banana and maple syrup!

Thanks for posting this, kath! I'm going to make it for sure this week...I LOVE oats! My question is how necessary is it to use the "quick oats"? I usually buy "scottish style porridge oats" at my health food store because i think they make a thicker, more satisfying bowl of oatmeal.

Honestly, I haven't tried them, so I'm not sure what would happen. The reason Quick Oats are best is because they are most absorbent of the egg whites and make the most unifrom batter. I've used old fashioned rolled oats before, but they usually need to sit a little longer to absorb more liquid. I think you could probably use steel cut oats, but I would let them sit overnight in your fridge for enough absorption. Maybe even add a little water too??? Let me know if you try them!

The calories depend on the amount of oats/eggwhites you use. But if you use 1/4 of each it's about 110 calories and 1/3 a cup of each is about 150 calories.
