Keep these pancakes in the freezer and pop them into the microwave for a quick breakfast.
- 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 egg
- 2 egg whites
- 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour or all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- In large bowl, combine oatmeal and buttermilk; let stand 2 minutes. Beat in oil, egg, egg whites, sugar and vanilla.
- In small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to oatmeal mixture, stirring just until combined.
- Heat a nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat. Using 1/4 cup batter per pancake, cook pancakes 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
