Oatmeal Pancakes

Ok; so I know we all love pancakes, there's no denying that, and even those of us trying to eat "clean" need a little treat every now and again. So here's my recipe for oatmeal pancakes; a bit of an acquired taste and a little on the dense side (it's oatmeal, what did you expect) but very tasty in my opinion! And hey; you gotta do what you gotta do to feel like you can eat a "normal" food like the rest of the world right!?!

Oatmeal Pancakes:
(makes 3 servings)

1 cup oats (quick, steel cut, old fashioned; whatever you happen to have on hand)
1 scoop protein powder (I have chocolate so it's what I use, but I'd recommend a vanilla)
3 egg whites
1 egg
2 tsps Sucanat (since this is just a dehydrated cane sugar there are other options you can try, just a little something to add sweetness)

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth and then just cook them up like regular pancakes!! And of course you can top them with fresh fruit if that's your kind of thing; a sugar free syrup or if you really want to live on the wild side the pure maple stuff!
