This is a fantastic option for those who are counting calories. There is no oil or sugar in the ingredients and they are less than 2 points each with Weight Watchers! This recipe was inspired by a cookbook called Volumetrics by Barbara Rolls. Top with fresh fruit (cooked bananas are great), fat free yogurt or honey.
- 1 1⁄4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄4 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups skim milk (or dairy-free milk)
- 2 egg whites (or one large egg)
- 1 mashed banana (ripe)
- Mix up all ingredients with a fork or wire whisk.
- cook on a non-stick pan or use a small amount of olive oil or cooking spray for each pancake.
I followed the recipe accordingly, and I really liked this pancake; it was dense, and the edges got really crispy so it's best to eat it immediately! However, it was not very sweet. I think syrup, brown sugar or honey is a better topping because fresh fruit alone would not be enough to sweeten it up.
Although these were a little bland, they had a good consistency and mixed easily. I added chocolate chips to liven up the flavor.
These pancakes were great. I used a combination of AP flour and buckwheat flour in place of whole wheat flour. I used a pretty big banana, and everything came together perfectly. Thanks for the good recipe!
