Dr. Mele suggests that adding a bit of freshly grated ginger is an extra treat!
Serves: 10-12 pancakes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 egg whites
  • ½ cup low fat or skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • ½ cup low sugar raspberry spread
  • Cut fresh fruit of your choice (bananas, oranges, pear, or apple)
  1. In a 1-quart saucepan over high heat, bring the water to a boil; stir in the oats. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, ginger and baking soda. Stir in the egg whites, milk, orange peel and cooked oats.
  3. Spray a 12-inch, nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place the skillet on the stove over medium heat. Spoon the batter into the hot skillet, using ¼-cup portions and spreading into a 3-1/2 inch round for each pancake.
  4. Cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side, turning once.
  5. Top with raspberry spread and fresh fruit. (Add a bit of freshly grated ginger for an extra treat!) Serve immediately.
