With summer coming to a close that doesn’t mean you should stop working on that summer bod, remember summer bodies are made in the winter. Techincally speaking you still have two weeks of summer left. Whilst some of you are putting on your boots and drinking your first PSL, I am going to wear my sports bras and soak up the vitamin D for as long as possible. These power oat pancakes are perfect for transitioning into the fall and will keep you full and fuled for training. You can even make these a head of time and re-heat them in a pan for a great post workout snack as well!
I usually hesitate from buying liquid egg whites unless you can find organic ones, if you can’t just separate the yolk from the whites and save the yolks for later.
You’ll need a cup of egg whites, 1/3 cup of oats, and 1 tsp of cinnamon. I like em cinnamony if you don’t like cinnamon, just leave it out and sub for an all natural extract instead (vanilla or coconut would be delicious). Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
Add 2 drops of liquid stevia or one packet of stevia. I like the taste of truvia the best. Be careful if you are using liqiud it is more potent and you only need a little. Pour mixture into a medium or large frying pan over medium heat, coat the pan first with coconut oil before frying. Flip when it starts to firm up and cook both sides until the pancake is throughly cooked. These pancakes are a little more dense than a normal pancake and will feel a little more firm..
I topped mine with Justins’s chocolate hazlenut butter and unsweetened coconut flakes. Get creative and drizzle with your favorite nut butter, top with berries, bananas, nuts, or eat them plain with some grassfed butter. Honestely they’re delicious either way!
