Greek Oat Pancakes

These have become a new weekly staple in our house as they are so healthy and so tasty!

10 minutes of prep and you'll have beautiful, protein-packed, low-cal pancakes. 

Makes approximately 20 small (5") pancakes.

What you'll need:

  • 2 cups Gluten-free oats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2 cups egg whites
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt (I use Chobani. Yes, you can use flavored, but it will add a lot of sugar!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
The how-to:
  • Preheat a non-stick skillet to 350 degrees
  • Process oats in a blender or food processor until they are turned into oat flour
  • Mix oats, egg whites, yogurt, and vanilla in a large bowl
  • Use a 1/4 cup measure to drop batter onto the skillet, flipping after the tops begin to look dry
  • Voila! Beautiful pancakes. 
  • Enjoy! (We've been eating them with these cherries and just a drizzle of local maple syrup and they are awesome!)
