Oatmeal Protein Pancakes (A perfect supportive meal or snack for on the go)
Oatmeal pancakes are my favorite travel food of all time.
• 1 cup of organic old fashioned oatmeal.
• 5 egg whites
• 1 whole egg
• 1/2 a chopped apple (or natural applesauce for thin batter) strawberries, bananas, or raisins can be substituted if apples are not available.
• a sprinkle of cinnamon,
• And (if you use it) a packet or two of pure stevia if it’s not sweet enough for you.
- (optional for more protein) a scoop of vanilla protein powder (if not available use more egg whites) (you also may use 3 whole eggs instead of 5 whites and one whole egg)
-Mix it up into a pancake-batter-like consistency and pour into a pan coated with nonstick spray (use coconut oil if possible). For 3 medium individual pancakes use 3 large spoonful's of batter (I use a ladle). When one side is lightly browned, flip it over and just like that - you have the ultimate portable food. Put them in some Tupperware or a small zip lock sandwich bag.
Oatmeal pancakes are great because they stay fresh without refrigeration for an entire day and you can pick at them and nibble anywhere; on a plane, in a car, sitting at your desk, in an auditorium or in a classroom. I make some at least once a week!
