Pancakes...The "Healthy" Kind!

This morning I wanted to experiment.  You know...since I am staying with my parents during "recovery" I mine as well use their well stocked kitchen for my experiments :)  Even tho it killllls my mom when I use egg whites and throw away the yolk...I usually just hide that fact from her. My sister reads this and YOU BETTER NOT SAY ANYTHING JENNIFER. (She always tells on me...even at 31 years old...)

Todays experiement: Protein Pancakes!

I always wanted to try these but most of the recipes I have seen use protein powder.  You know, the powder weightloss peeps use for their shakes.  I don't use protein powder during my journey. Mostly because I am stubborn and want to lose weight the old fashioned way: Eat less, move more. Also because protein powder is expensiveeeeee and I would rather buy clothes. Typical.

Anyways...on to the pancakes

1/2 Cup Oatmeal (grind up into a powder)
4 Egg Whites
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Vanilla

Mix the ingredients together and then make like a pancake. Easy. (Thank you for sharing the recipe @sara_ann21!!!)

YUM! So good. I topped mine with bananas and sugar free syrup. SO GOOD!  Side note: I ended up sharing with my mom...the recipe was probably for (2) servings...I couldn't finish them all.

If you end up trying them...let me know how you like them!
