Oatbran Pancakes with Peanut Sauce

Posted Mar 05 2010 7:58am


With all the pork in the house (more on that later), I decided to have my favorite dinner tonight!  Pancakes, of course!!!  I have to say that I read a lot of HEAB and her food is right up my ally (aside from the bacon, sorry HEAB, but to each his own, right?)  She does pancake Sundays, but I am not good with keeping up a schedule with food.  Tomorrow is supposed to be pizza, but I don't think that is going to happen.  Anyway, I saw her pancakes the other day and then I saw the oatbran she cooked.  I have never had oatbran before, but I got some from the bulk bin the last time I was at Whole Foods.  I got to thinking...oatbran pancakes.  The illustrator is not a huge fan of pancakes for dinner, so since he was covered for dinner, I got creative. 

The texture of these is not your typical bready pancake.  They did puff up and they had a tasty firm outside, but the inside stayed creamy.  I am guessing the addition of a little flour would fluff them up some, but honestly, I loved the creaminess!  With the warm peanut sauce on top, these were some of the best pancakes I have ever had!  We are out of syrup so I wanted something to put on them and I am still on the "how to get more protein into my diet" frame of mind.  My friend Mimi gave me some PB2 and I love the saucey consistancy, but sadly I am all out.  So, I decided to make some sauce by adding some almond milk and a few drops of vanilla stevia (I love this stuff) to my creamy peanut butter and heat it a little.  Then poured it all over this pile of pancakes and then devoured them!!!

Oatbran Pancakes

1 cup cooked oatbran
1/2 cup egg substitute or 2 eggs (flax egg would work too)
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
15 drops NuNaturals vanilla stevia
17 grams vanilla protein powder (I used up the other half pack of SunWarrior )

Allow the oatbran to cool.  You could make it the night before.  Next add everything else and stir until smooth.  Cook in a nonstick pan with cooking spray or coconut oil.

A note on the peanut butter sauce... the illustrator tasted it and loved it.  He said he is in for the next pancakes for dinner!
