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!!!
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!
