Got this idea off of the MyFoodDiary.com forums. High in protein and fiber. A nourishing, filling breakfast for one that is quick. I'd like to try it some time with regular oats instead of instant ones (maybe quick cooking) and see how that comes out.
- 1 (1 1/2 ounce) packet instant plain oatmeal
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water, approximately
- vegetable oil cooking spray
- Spray a small skillet with vegetable oil and put it on the stove top at medium-high to heat.
- Scramble egg with a fork in a cereal bowl.
- Open instant oatmeal packet and add it to the egg, mixing it in .
- Add enough water to make the consistency right for pancake batter, about 1 tbsp more or less.
- Pour into the skillet to form one large pancake. Turn heat down to medium. When edges begin to look dry and bubbles start to form on the top, flip with a spatula (about 2 minutes?). Cook on the other side for one to two minutes until done.
- Serve with condiments such as butter and maple syrup, or spread with peanut butter or yogurt and top with fresh fruit.
My husband is not currently eating wheat, so I thought this would be a good pancake substitute. We both enjoyed it and it was pretty filling. I also liked that these pancakes are easier to flip than traditional ones.
This was a great pancake. I had a devil of a time converting the "1 1/2 oz" into a cup amt, since I don't have those packets! I think I got it right & used 1/2 cup rolled oats (I don't have quick cooking). I wanted 2 smaller sized pancakes instead of 1 lg one so I 2 tbsp water & about 1/3 cup Eggbeaters (one egg=1/4 cup Eggbeaters). I added a nice amount of cinnamon, a little baking powder & vanilla. I also used my immersion blender to make the batter smooth. Natural peanut butter, bananas & some sugar free syrup are great toppings! Thank u for sharing!
My girls just made these. We used flavored oatmeal packets, and they loved them! After the girls were done, I had one egg left. So I put 3 pkts of oatmeal with the one egg, a little baking powder (maybe 1/8 tsp) and enough water to make the "batter". My sons loved them this way too. If your low on eggs and still want to give these a go, try it this way.
