You’ll flip for these simple no-sugar-added flapjacks, which are packed with 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber…for less than 300 calories. There’s no need for a topper, but if you’d like, you could make extra sautéed apples to spoon over the top for a mouthwatering presentation.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • ½ cup quick cooking oats
  • 4 egg whites
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon butter or soft tub spread
  • ½ apple, skin on, finely diced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine oats, egg whites and vanilla in a small bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.

Liberally coat a skillet with oil spray and warm over medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add apple and sauté. While apples are cooking, add cinnamon and continue to cook until apples are soft.

Toss apples into batter and mix until well combined. (For an additional 28 calories, add an optional 2 tablespoons Cherry-Chia Jam to batter and mix until well combined.)

Pour the mixture onto the warm skillet to make about 5 small pancakes. Cook until you see small bubbles forming, about 1 to 2 minutes. Then flip the pancakes over and cook until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
