My friend Julie was on the Body for Life diet when she gave me this recipe. It might have come from the literature in that program. This makes a pancake for one. I used the quick cooking and have never tried it with the old fashioned oats. She topped it with peanut butter for the protein. This may be used as a breakfast or as a quick snack in the middle of the day. It really tastes better than it sounds!
- 1⁄2 cup oatmeal
- 1 egg
- 2 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- peanut butter (optional)
- Beat eggs.
- Add remaining ingredients and blend well.
- Cook over medium heat on stove until you see bubbles or can tell that it has cooked over halfway through.
- Flip and cook the other side until done.
- May spread with peanut butter for additional protein.
Not really sure how to rate this; I had it for lunch using the old fashion oats and it worked fine. Followed the directions exactly and it did make one very large pancake. It was VERY filling and I wasn't hungry again all day - even cut way down on dinner. For that alone it gets 4 stars. The taste I think is something I'll have to get used to, but think it'd be greatly improved (IMHO) with a topping of fresh fruit or maybe bananas with the peanut butter. Think it's a healthy, and filling meal that has a good place in a health diet. Made for Spring PAC 2011
This is a tasty, filling and healthy breakfast that I accompanied with applesauce. Large flake oats were used to make this and I'll have to try quick oats next time to compare the end result. The large flake don't absorb the eggs well so the mixture was a bit watery when added to the pan. All in all, I liked this and will be having it again. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
