Cinnamon Toast Crunch pancakes

Servings: 6 small pancakes

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour (see below for gluten-free option)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp + 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp liquid egg whites (about 2 egg whites)
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • cooking spray

*Gluten-Free option: replace 1/4 cup flour with 1/4 oat bran by grinding 1/4 cup gluten-free oats in a food processor until they resemble a course flour*

METHOD
  1. Combine oats, flour, baking powder, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and brown sugar in a medium bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whip egg whites until foamy and set aside.
  3. Combine almond milk, vanilla, and vinegar in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until batter is formed. Gently fold in egg whites until just combined. (Be careful not to over mix).
  4. Combine granulated sugar and remaining 1 tbsp cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  6. Add batter to skillet to form 6 small pancakes. When bubbles start to form on the top of the pancakes (about 2-3 minutes), gently flip pancakes and cook for additional 2-3 minutes or until cooked through.
  7. Transfer pancakes to a plate. One at a time, lightly spray the top of each pancake with cooking spray and dip in cinnamon and sugar mixture from step 4.
  8. With skillet over medium heat, place pancake top-side down for about 30 seconds or until cinnamon-sugar mixture caramelizes.
  9. Serve immediately. Top with maple syrup and sliced bananas if desired.
