I really do love pancakes in the morning. However, I don't like oatmeal pancakes. Don't get me wrong, I know, as an active weight trainer, this is a healthy alternative to regular pancakes but wow, it tastes so awful!

The first thing you need to do is ground up the oats. Generally, you can get oatmeal flour at your local bulk food store. However, if you don't have access to one, simply add about 2 cups of oats to your blender and grind it all up until there is just fine powder. Warning! Don't stick a spoon in the blender while it's in motion. Let the blender work for a minute or two, it will eventually grind up the oats. If you have to stir up the oats, turn the blender off first, and than stir up the oats.
- 1 organic egg;
- 1/2 cup unbleached, whole wheat flour;
- 1/2 cup oats;
- 1 tsp organic vanilla extract;
- 1 scoop whey protein powder (optional);
- 1 tblsp of sugar (preferrably sugar substitute);
- 1 tsp baking powder;
- 1/2 tsp salt;
- 1 cup skim milk;
- 1 tblsp of olive oil
In a bowl with either a whisk or an electric blender. Once you have the consistency that suits your tastes, heat up a non stick pan on medium high heat. Add roughly 1 tsp of olive oil to the pan. Add mixture to the pan. Each pancake should be about 3" or 4" in diameter. Cook until each side is golden brown. Add pancakes to a plate and cover with tinfoil (This way they don't get cold).
Mix egg whites in a bowl and add about 1/2 tsp of water to the eggs. Simply scramble the eggs until done.
Top pancakes with strawberries and applesauce and serve with scrambled eggs. This recipe is great for those Saturday mornings when you have to hit the gym in the mid morning.
