4-Ingredient Oatmeal Pancakes

Who said you couldn't eat pancakes every single morning and still follow your bikini-prep meal plan?

Not I, said the fly!

Well, I may not eat these pancakes every morning because some days, I wake up with three minutes to do 30 minutes worth of getting ready to go to work. That includes hugging my dogs, rolling my hair and making the bed. (I'm a nazi about making the bed). There's something about having a neat bed that makes the whole room look better — even if the rest of the place is a disaster.

Any way, the point is that if you wanted to eat these pancakes every day, you could, and it would be totally appropriate.

Oatmeal Pancakes

Note: The ingredients make one serving of 3 pancakes, so if you want to make more at a time, be brave and do the math. I tend to steer clear of numbers ...

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup water
  • stevia/cinnamon to taste

Directions:

  1. Blend your oats in a food processor or a blender to make them finely ground, like flour.
  2. Combine the oats with the egg whites, stevia and cinnamon (and whatever other flavorings you want) in a bowl.
  3. Even though I said 1/2 cup of water, I like to turn the faucet on really lightly, and let it slowly dribble into the bowl, stirring it at the same time, until it gets to be that pancake-batter-pudding-like consistency.
  4. Sometimes, I'll add a tablespoon of Spirulina, which is pretty much tasteless, and is a total super food (more to come on that soon).
  5. Get out your pan on the stove, and make the pancakes like you normally would.
Other options for these pancakes would be to add 1/2 - 1 scoop of whey isolate protein. My favorite is Hydrowhey Platinum by Optimum Nutrition in Cookies & Cream. You can also add almond butter, PB2, Walden Farms calorie-free syrup, vanilla extract or cocoa powder. 

These pancakes are so easy and so delicious, you will be hooked. Get creative, and tell me what you like best for your pancakes in the comments below!

    1. Heck yes, they would! I actually used to eat them with blueberries or strawberries earlier on in my meal plan, and I still would, but right now I'm not eating fruit. But, I will eat them vicariously through you! ;)
