CORY'S Protein Pancakes-- YUM!!!

Cory's Protein Pancakes
2 ¼ C. Oatmeal (quick oats)
1 C. unsweetened Apple sauce
¾ C. Liquid Egg Whites
¼ C. Fat Free Greek Yogurt
¼ C. peanut butter
2 T. Ground Flaxseed
3-4 scoops whey protein (Vanilla is best but Plain works too)
¾ teas. Cinnamon (we use the Cinnamon Plus from Pampered Chef, it has nutmeg, allspice, cloves, ground orange peel and ginger. This is almost a must to get the taste right!)

Add some dried cranberries (this helps make them sweeter)
Your favorite sweetener. We use about 3 T. of Truvia
ground nuts like walnuts

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a hand-mixer.

Then add water to get "pancake batter consistency." Usually about a half a cup. It will likely thicken up as you are trying to get all your pancakes cooked so just add a little more water as needed.
Non-stick spray in a skillet on Medium to Med-low heat… they need to cook slow or the middle doesn’t get done.
Use a ¼ C measuring cup to pour in pan.

Keep refrigerated. They are great cold or warmed up. GREAT ON-The-GO snack! The only bad thing is they disappear too fast! Even the kids love them!

Makes 16-18 pancakes.
Nutrition facts will vary but this is approximately what we figured ours to be per pancake:
Cals: 130
Carbs: 14g
Fat: 3g
