Here is my favorite recipe for breakfast on the weekend. I converted it to CORE.
Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray Show: 30 Minute Meals Episode: Get the Day Started Right Converted to CORE by Courtney )
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup oatmeal "flour" (grind 1&1/2 cups oatmeal in food processor)
1/2 cup Splenda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup fat-free sour cream
3/4 cup fat-free milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 really ripe bananas, mashed up
Non-stick spray for griddle or pan
Sugar-free syrup for drizzling.
Here's a great tip: if you cannot find really ripe bananas, just nuke them in the microwave for about 15 seconds and they will become super soft for mashing. Mix dry ingredients, the first 6, in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients, the next 4. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined, then fold in the mashed up bananas. (**Honestly, I mix it all in one bowl.)
Heat a griddle or pan over medium heat and spray with non-stick spray. Cook pancakes, each about 1/4 cup, until bubbles form on the top, then turn. Cakes will cook in about 2 minutes on each side. Keep pancakes tented with foil as they come off the griddle to keep them hot. Serve with drizzled sugar-free syrup over the top. (I think they are good without the syrup.)
Let me know what you think. I love, love, love them and we eat them most Saturday and Sunday mornings. My family gets all excited when the bananas start to go bad since they know I will be making the pancakes soon.
