Yummy Oatmeal Pancakes - No White Flour or Sugar!

Here is my favorite pancake recipe. 

These are the best pancakes ever, and they have no flour or sugar!  

Oatmeal Pancakes Ingredients:

1 cup milk, almond milk (or water)*
3/4 cup oatmeal (uncooked regular oats)
3/4 cup oatmeal flour  (blend oatmeal in blender till flour-like)
1 tsp baking powder (optional)
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
4 large egg whites
1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground

Try these modifications:

Blueberry pancakes: Add ¼ c blueberries (fresh or thawed) to recipe and omit cinnamon
Oat-Nut pancakes: Add 1 ½ tbsp diced pecans, walnuts, or almonds to recipe.
Whole Grain pancakes: Replace quick oats with hot multigrain cereal.  Prepare as directed.
High protein pancakes:  Add 1-2 scoops vanilla protein to batter, increase water.
Heat milk (or water) until hot, stir in oats and set aside. Beat egg whites into a stiff foam with hand mixer or blender and reserve. Mix remaining dry ingredients together and stir in oatmeal/milk mixture. Fold in egg whites until mixture is well blended.  Use a little olive or coconut oil, or butter, and cook pancakes until golden browned on both sides. 

*Depending on how long you've let the oats sit, you may need to add a little extra water to the batter to thin it out.  It will still be thicker than regular pancake batter
