- ¾ cup old-fashioned oatmeal (rolled oats)
- 4 egg whites (1 egg yolk optional)
- 1/2 apple, diced

Yield : 1 large pancake
Instructions1.) Put all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Stir until the mixture has a semi-liquid pancake-batter-like consistency.
2.) Spray some non-stick spray on a frying pan and pour the mixture into the pan.
3.) Cook on medium heat. When one side is lightly browned and solid enough to flip, turn the pancake over with a spatula and cook the other side until lightly browned and firm.
Note: For higher protein diets, add one scoop of protein powder (I like vanilla protein - I use a "vanilla praline" that adds a really nice flavor to the recipe too). Wrap up your pancake in foil and take it to go, put it in the fridge for later use, or eat it hot right off the stove! Oatmeal pancakes will stay fresh all day long without requiring refrigeration.
Cooking and Nutrition TipsThis recipe makes one large (6-8" diameter) pancake and it's a complete meal. If you need fewer calories to accommodate your personal nutrition plan, simply decrease the amounts of all ingredients proportionately to get the desired calorie content you want.

If the batter consistency is not right, you can use fewer egg whites or more oatmeal to make it thicker, or vice versa. (You could also add a bit of water or milk if it's too thick... remember to count any extra calories you put it). To add calories, you can also use a whole egg (I find that it changes the taste if you make it with all egg yolks, plus it adds calories, so use egg whites if you want to keep it "lighter.")
You can use other types of fruit such as bananas or raisins instead of apples (get as creative as you want - I must have seen at least a dozen variations on this egg whites and oatmeal recipe). Using a packet or two of non-caloric sweetener is optional. These taste pretty
This is truly the ultimate travel meal because you can take it with you and it stays fresh for an entire day without refrigeration. Just wrap it up in foil and you're good to go!
It is also "finger food" and you can eat it conveniently a little piece at a time even while you're behind the wheel driving, flying on a
