A quick and easy way to use instant oatmeal packets, instead of just adding water and popping it in the microwave! And it's yummy!
- 1 (1 1/8 ounce) packet instant oatmeal (any flavor)
- 1⁄2 banana, mashed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄3 cup Egg Beaters egg substitute
- Mix and combine all ingredients.
- Pour into non-stick skillet and when you shake the pan and the pancake moves, it's time to flip.
- Brown on both sides, and enjoy!
- (I also add about 1/4 cup of sugar-free maple syrup).
I made these as directed, using one whole egg instead of Egg Beaters, and I added a teaspoon of peanut butter and chocolate chips--which were great additions. My only problem with these pancakes were that they were very dry! I will add milk (or almond milk) next time I make these!
I made these tonight and I thought they were good. I used Maple and brown sugar oatmeal, didn't have a banana, but added the egg beaters, cinnamon and vanilla and it was plenty sweet! I'm definatly going to make these again using different flavored oatmeal. Thanks for posting this recipe!
I made these as directed (except 1 whole egg instead of Egg Beaters) the first time with a Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal packet and they were delicious. I'm not the best pancake maker, one side always gets too dark, so I tried making it into muffins the second time. I doubled the recipe (I have two kids) and sprayed my regular sized muffin tin with nonstick spray, then divided the mixture into 12 equal muffins. The batter was only about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick in each cup. I baked them at 350f for about 15-18 minutes when the tops sprung back. These were crazy good and the kids (ages 6 and 7) loved getting 6 muffins each. What's not to like when your kids consume a packet of oatmeal, 1/2 a banana and an egg for breakfast. BTW, I used a whole egg instead of the Egg Beaters because I didn't have any.
