Blueberry Oat Pancakes


Tonight I decided to tackle making really healthy pancakes. They were a great success, delicious, light, and very healthy. The wild blueberries made these pancakes especially delicious! I made up this recipe as I went along, so the water addition is a judgement call, I think I added about 1/4-1/2 c. It should look like average pancake batter.


Blueberry Oat Pancakes

½ c. oat flour
½ c. whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. brown sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
1 egg white
½ c. skim milk
¼ - ½ c. water
½ c. wild blueberries, plus extra for topping

Turn a griddle on medium heat.
In a bowl, whisk oat flour (I use oatmeal ground in the food processor), whole wheat flour, baking powder, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add the egg white, milk, and 1/4 c. water. Whisk for 20 seconds, if it's thick, add some water. When it reaches desired consistency, add 1/2 c. blueberries and fold in with a spatula.
Drop onto griddle about 1/4 c. at a time. Cook for 4 minutes on the first side, flip and cook for 3 minutes. This should make about 8-10 pancakes.
