Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
1 cup rolled oats (old fashioned)
8 egg whites
1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Canola oil spray
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Mist a non-stick pan or griddle with the canola oil spray. Heat over medium heat and cook 2 – 3 large pancakes (one at a time if using a small skillet) until browned on both sides. Top with poached cinnamon apples (recipe follows) or serve with a touch of light maple syrup or your favorite jam.
