What I really like about these pancakes is the spices: pure natural vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger mixed with fresh grated apple. Can you imagine how fragrant and delicious!!!.My husband ( who does not need to lose weight) loved them too. Of course he put some nut butter and banana topping on his.
My Secret Recipe Club blog assignment for May is Successful2gether , and that is where I found the recipe..I literally found 8 breakfast recipes using oatmeal which were naturally gluten free ( if you buy GF oats) .
I can't even begin to tell how good the pancakes were and how much variety they added to my Weight Watcher breakfasts!
It's a wonderful pancake whether you are watching your weight or not . It also could be a good way to get kids to eat oatmeal. Oats are said to bring down cholesterol and add needed fiber to the diet.
So, if you like pancakes, enjoy.
I topped my pancakes with mashed banana ( fabulous); I topped my husband's pancakes with my banana peanut butter topping ( amazing). We were both very happy.
The recipe called for a packet of sweetener , which I omitted, but I think it was great without it.
Recipe for one; (can be doubled)
1/3 cup of quick oats ( I used gluten free oats)
1 egg ( I use eggland's Best which has 25% less saturated fat)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch of ground ginger ( optional) ( I used fresh grated ginger because I love it)
1/2 apple, grated
Beat egg, add oats, cinnamon, vanilla, and grated apple. Mix well and drop pancakes onto a warmed oil sprayed skillet. Turn over when browned and then brown the other side. It can be made into 3-4 small pancakes or one big pancake.

|Pancakes and mashed banana -yum|
I used the exact same recipe, but I wanted to try making the oats into a flour-like consistancy, so I the oats in a spice grinder I included this version because my husband liked it this way too.
|Grind the oats by pulsing a few times|
|I ground the oats in a spice mill ( and added the cinnamon and ginger|
|They came out a little smoother|
