Fighting Cancer With Nutrition - Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes

by GregP_WN

Oatmeal Pancakes
These pancakes are guilt free because they’re made without the customary fats and sugars. Once you’ve enjoyed these a few times, you might not even want the traditional kind!

Oatmeal Pancakes With Compote

1½ cups nonfat or soy milk
½ teaspoon vinegar
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1 tablespoon raw brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
Canola oil spray

Preheat griddle or large skillet to medium-high. It’s ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on the surface dance. Pour the vinegar into the milk to make a faux buttermilk. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt. In a smaller bowl, combine egg whites, faux buttermilk, and yogurt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix well.
Spray the preheated griddle or skillet with canola oil spray. Immediately, so the oil doesn’t burn, and working in batches, spoon 2 tablespoons batter onto griddle or skillet for each pancake. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. You will need to re-spray canola oil on griddle or skillet after each batch, since there is no oil in these pancakes. Serve with Fresh Fruit Compote.
Serves 3-4

Fresh Fruit Compote
This is a nice healthy alternative to syrup for your pancakes or French toast. It’s loaded with antioxidants, warm, inviting, and yummy!

1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1 banana, sliced
1 peach, diced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Juice of ½ lemon
Canola oil spray

Spray a medium sized skillet with canola oil spray, and place all ingredients in pan. Cook over a low heat until all of the ingredients meld together and the mixture thickens.
