Because research shows that starting your day with a high-protein breakfast can aid weight loss and boost energy, these “Joy Food” pancakes will leave you feeling worlds better than traditional starchy flapjacks. Whip up a batch and dig in.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • ½ cup quick cooking oats
  • 4 egg whites
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener of choice (sugar, maple syrup or honey or 1 packet sugar substitute)
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Optional chopped fruit

Generously coat a skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium heat.

Combine all of ingredients in a small bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed.

Pour the mixture onto the skillet to make either 1 jumbo pancake or 5 small pancakes. Cook until you see small bubbles forming, about 2 to 3 minutes for the jumbo pancake or 1 to 2 for the small pancakes. Then flip the pancake(s) over and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

Optional topping: Nuke frozen fruit in the microwave, then pour the fruit and all the natural juices over the finished pancake as I’ve done in this picture. Tastes amazing . . . and no added sugar.
