Total Time:31 min
1 c quick-cooking oats
½ c whole grain pastry flour
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
1½ tsp hain pure foods featherweight baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
3 egg whites
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ c fat-free ricotta cheese

1. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray, then wipe away the excess with a paper towel and set aside the towel. Use this towel to wipe the skillet between pancakes, recoating the skillet with the oil and cleaning away any pancake batter crumbs.
2. Preheat the skillet to medium-low, then reduce the heat to low.
3. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then add the wet ingredients and mix.
4. Spoon about ½ cup of the batter into the skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until firm and golden brown. Flip the pancake and finish cooking for 30 seconds to 1 minutes longer, or until golden brown. Remove the pancake to a plate. Wipe the skillet with the paper towel.
5. Repeat STEP 4 with the remaining batter to make a total of 8 pancakes.
It’s important to cook pancakes over low heat to make sure they cook evenly. If the heat is too high, the outsides will burn while the insides remain runny.
Limit yourself to 3 pancakes per sitting and store the rest in the fridge.
