Oatmeal Pancakes

I love my pancakes.  Sadly on this diet, we are cutting calories and shying away from a lot of bread, so no pancakes.  Or so I thought.  I found this recipe for oatmeal pancakes and decided to give it a go.

Oatmeal Pancakes

2 cups Oatmeal (Quick Oats work best) - 600 cal.
2 cups Milk - Skim makes it 160 cal.  You could substitute water, but it makes them a bit too runny for my taste.
2 egg whites - 30 cal.  You can use the whole egg if you aren't worried about calories.  Eggs are 70 cal. each.
1tsp cinnamon
1tsp nutmeg

Blend all ingredients in the blender.

Fry up in the griddle. 

Makes about 8-9 pancakes around 100 cal. each.

You can also add raisins to the mix (about 1/4 cup and 130 cal), use heated applesauce for a syrup, or I like to use Kernel Seasonings' Apple Cinnamon blend sprinkled on top of the pancakes.

These aren't the light and fluffy buttermilk pancakes, more of a dense oat cake, but they are quite yummy and a hit with me, the 11 yr old and the 2 yr old.
