Oatmeal Pancakes

INGREDIENTS

* 2 1/2 cups dry gluten free rolled oats, not instant, not steel cut
* 6 egg whites
* 1 cup skim, soy, almond, rice or other milk
* 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
* 1 tablespoon safflower oil
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* Nonfat cooking spray

METHOD
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend the mixture for 20 seconds. The resulting mixture should be smooth. Spray a griddle or skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of pancake mixture on the hot surface. Cook until the panckes are dry and bubbly on the edges. Bubbles should appear on top, as well. Turn and brown the other side.

I use unsweetened applesauce as a sweetener -- not maple syrup.

YIELD
Makes 12 small pancakes. Serve 3 small pancakes per serving.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
