5-Ingredient Pancakes You Can Feel Great About
We're used to seeing pancakes piled high, topped with pats of butter and doused in syrup, but there's a much lighter way to enjoy these treats. Nutritionist and trainer Franci Cohen
regularly whips up a supersimple, flourless batter consisting of old-fashioned oats, egg whites, grated apple and a dash of cinnamon. The key is to let the mixture sit for 5 to 10 minutes before cooking, so the oats plump up from the moisture in the egg and fruit. She ladles spoonfuls onto a griddle, flips them when they start to bubble, puts them on a plate and eats them with fresh berries. The cakes are high in fiber, protein and vitamins, and will keep you full all morning (you may even want to pack an extra in your bag for an afternoon snack).
