Prep time

5 min.

Cook time

5 min.

  • 1 tsp avocado oil spray
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • For the topping:
  • 2 Tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 cup berries
  • 3 mint leaves

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with your avocado oil or other cooking spray.

Add the oats, egg whites, and cinnamon to your blender. Blend until the oats are smooth, and you have a batter. Pour into your skillet.

Once bubbles start to form in your pancake and the edges firm up (about 2 1/2 minutes), flip your pancake. Cook for another 2½ minutes or so, or until the bottom is golden brown.

Add on your toppings and enjoy.
