Single Serving Oatmeal Pancake

This Single Serving Oatmeal Pancake is a filling breakfast.  It's high in protein and high in flavor.  You'll want it for breakfast today!

There's no flour in this pancake.  No flour?  How can one make a pancake with no flour?  Simple--it uses oatmeal instead!  This oatmeal pancake is the most filling pancake I have ever eaten.  I actually was only able to eat half of it before I was to full to continue.  And, I had it for lunch!  Had I had it for breakfast, I maybe could have eaten a third.  This is one filling pancake I tell you!

So where did I come up with the idea for an oatmeal pancake?  Truth be told, I didn't!  Rachel, the author of The Avid Appetite did.  I was assigned to her blog for this month's Secret Recipe Club.  I've browsed her site before, so I knew that I would find a variety of delicious recipes on it.  In fact, my list of recipes I'd like to make from her list was long.  I picked out 17!  Then I had to narrow it down to just one.  I settled on making a breakfast dish and had to decide between a few of her smoothies and these pancakes.  And you know me and pancakes!

Anyway, this pancake is delicious and filling!  I think it's probably similar to baked oatmeal, but I've never had that before.  Rachel's recipe left room for a lot of options.  I chose to use unsweetened applesauce in place of the pumpkin.  Since I didn't have flavor from the pumpkin, I decided to use peanut butter for flavor, but since I didn't want to increase the calorie count, I used PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter .  The addition of peanut butter made me think to sprinkle in a few chocolate chips.  Then I topped off the whole pancake with a dollop of peanut butter, which I smeared over the pancake after taking pictures.

This pancake does take a few minutes to cook, and isn't the easiest to flip because it's so large.  Be patient with it though and let it cook almost through before flipping (that will make it easier).  If it breaks, no big deal...it will still taste delicious!  The flavor combination possibilities for this pancake really are endless.  You could have a lot of fun customizing your pancakes!

Serves 1

Ingredients:
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 egg whites
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon agave nectar
2 Tablespoons milk (I used almond milk)
2 Tablespoons PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
2 Tablespoons chocolate chips
splash of vanilla
pinch of salt
coconut oil
peanut butter, syrup, fresh fruit, jam (your choice of topping)

1. Mix the pancake ingredients together.

2.  Melt about a teaspoon of coconut oil in a small frying pan.  You could also grease the pan with baking spray.

3.  Pour the batter into the pan.  Let the pancake cook on one side until it is completely set, about 5-7 minutes.  Flip the pancake and cook until the other side is brown, an additional 3-4 minutes.

4.  Top with peanut butter, jam, syrup or fresh fruit.

  3. LOVE pancakes but don't eat them much because of the flour and the syrup. I have to try this one.
