Prep time: 15 mins

Cook time: 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 egg whites

Directions:

1. In a medium bowl combine all dry ingredients (flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon).

2. In another medium bowl combine all wet ingredients (milk & eggs).

3. In a large bowl add wet & dry ingredients and mix until the batter is slightly lumpy.

4. In a medium skillet at medium heat add oil or butter. Pour a small amount of pancake batter on skillet and flip once bubbles start to form. Flip over and cook for about 2 more minutes.

Pancake tip: Dispense pancake batter into the pan even more easily by squirting it from a ketchup bottle!
