Ok, so I have been searching for an egg white oatmeal pancake recipe for quite a bit now, and just haven’t found one I love. I took a break from it until this morning when I found one to try and BAM! Most delicious of them all! (The others I was choking down to the last bite . . . no good).
What makes this recipe so different? Well, it is pretty fluffy and light for a whole-grain pancake. And, I don’t know, it was scrumptious until the end and I wanted more! That is always a good sign.
I found this recipe on Pinterest, of course. But modified it to fit my macros. I eat eggs, oatmeal, and fruit for breakfast almost every morning. I love eggs, oatmeal, and fruit! But, its nice to spice things up a bit and use those ingredients to make something different.
Here is my modified recipe:
- 30g oat flour
- 10g oats
- 50g cottage cheese
- 2 egg whites
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 1/2 t. baking powder
- dash of salt
- dash of cinnamon
- Stevia to taste
And for the topping:
I mixed up the pancake ingredients and cooked them in the fry pan. I made 3 pancakes, which is perfect for me! As far as adding sweetener to the batter, I usually don’t add much, and while my pancakes themselves were not very sweet, once you add the fruit topping it is plenty sweet, and I like it that way! In the meantime, cut up the peaches (if i had the means to fresh peaches, I wouldn’t be using canned. But such are these times. I just get the kind with no added sugar), and sprinkle some Stevia on top and microwave for about 45 seconds. You are more than welcome to use whatever kind of syrup/fruit topping concoction you can come up with. Right now I don’t have sugar-free syrup, so I have to make my own fruit topping. Plus, I like fruit topping better anyways. (Another fruit topping option is to microwave a serving of frozen blueberries until they’re almost soft. Mush them up with a fork and sprinkle Stevia on top, then microwave for another 20-30 seconds. Makes a delicious crushed blueberry topping!)
Fruit Topped Pancakes! (I sprinkled cinnamon over the top)
To finish up, I garnished my breakfast with a pan cooked egg white (I still had one egg white I needed to eat for my plan) and it was scrumptious!!! I wanted more. Definitely going to make this for breakfast again this week! Next step is to test it on the hubby to see if he approves.
