Today's breakfast was delicious! I started searching last night for oatmeal pancake recipes because I had a craving, but all of them I found had regular flour in them and I didn't want to use regular flour, or they used cottage cheese which I can't stand! So after about an hour of frustration I decided to just make my own recipe. I did use an egg but you can sub 1T of flaxseed meal mixed with 3T of water to eliminate the egg.

These were so yummy I didn't get any pictures before we gobbled them up (hence the picture of oats for this post haha!) I do plan to make more to freeze in 2 packs for weekday breakfasts with a little bit of peanut butter. The recipe makes about 12 pancakes and a serving size of 2 is only 3 WW Points+ and super filling!
2.5c oats (2c ground into oat flour, .5c whole oats)
1T baking powder
.5c unsweetened applesauce
Grind 2 c oats in a coffee grinder to make oat flour.
Add all ingredients except water to a bowl mix. Pour in water and mix again. (There should be little to no lumps.)
Heat skillet or griddle (you can use a bit of oil if you want, I use my Misto to limit fat.)
Pour .25c servings of batter onto heated skillet. The surface will not “bubble” like a traditional pancake (you may see a few bubbles) to indicate when it is ready to flip, so you just have to watch closely.
Add ins: diced apples, cinnamon, blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, cranberries
Notes:Make sure your oats are gluten free if you are on a gluten free diet. I used a coffee grinder to make my own oat flour and it was so easy! I decreased the amount of salt from 1tsp to .5tsp because it tasted too salty to me, but you could increase if you wanted to. You could sub milk for the water as well, but I wanted dairy free and lower points for this breakfast :)
