Three Ingredient Oat Pancakes for One
These Three Ingredient Oat Pancakes for One might just be the easiest recipe on the blog. But it also happens to be one of my favorites. It’s the perfect quick, easy, satisfying breakfast for one that’s super scrumptious too- this you’ve got to try!
Last week was really crappy. Nothing serious… just work stuff. So, Saturday morning when I was trying to decide what to have for breakfast, I knew it had to be something sweet and over-the-top delicious. These three ingredient pancakes sure fit the bill. At least something good came out of a few terrible days.
These little gems are pretty perfect. The oats add tons of satisfying texture, the banana works as a sweetener and holds everything together and then the egg whites fuel your body with lean protein. Even though the main three ingredients will work wonderfully; you will enjoy your pancakes so much more with a dash of cinnamon and stevia.
Whether you’re trying to overcome a bad week or just enjoy a lovely clean-eating breakfast, these three ingredient pancakes for one will be your new jam! You’ll love them because they’re:
and always a good idea!
- 1/2 very ripe banana mashed
- 1/3 cup quick oats or old-fashioned oats pulsed a few times in a food processor
- 1/3 cup egg whites*
- Optional for tastier pancakes: 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 packet stevia
- Optional for serving: maple syrup and fresh fruit
Combine mashed banana with oats and egg whites. Add cinnamon and stevia, if desired. Let mixture sit for about 3-5 minutes. Heat a non-stick large or small skillet or griddle.** Spray with cooking spray as needed.
Spoon or pour batter onto skillet or griddle. Allow pancakes to cook about 5-8 minutes on the first side and then 3-5 minutes on the second side and until both sides are golden brown.
Remove pancakes to plate and serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit, if desired. Enjoy!
*I use liquid egg whites from a carton.
**I use an 1/8 cup to spoon batter onto griddle to make 6 very small pancakes. Alternatively, use a small skillet to pour all batter into and make one very large pancake.
I always recommend adding fresh fruit! Change it up- blueberries, peaches, raspberries would all be delicious.
Pancakes are second only to waffles as best breakfast ever! Enjoy a few other favorite recipes!
Something to think about….
How was your week? I sure hope it was better than mine. And I know, I really shouldn’t be complaining about anything- my family’s healthy and happy. Please tell me it’s okay just to whine about stuff that’s not really even that important. I think we all have those moments. 🙂
