This recipe makes 1 Serving
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (quick cooking)*
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (those with diabetes may use sugar substitute)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

Generously coat a skillet with oil spray and preheat over medium heat.

In a small bowl whip together all of the ingredients. Pour the mixture onto the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown, on each side.
