Oatmeal Cinnamon Pancakes, loaded with Protein!

DSC_0017

I love to try new pancake recipes!  I’ve been trying different recipes without flour.  In this recipe I used Garbanzo bean flour which is a much healthier substitute than using white flour.  Garbanzo Bean Flour is gluten free!  I wouldn’t say that my daily diet is totally gluten free but, I try, for the most part to steer clear of gluten as well as processed foods.  My diet is not perfect by any means, but I work on limiting these things.  I know that there are differing opinions on whether or not oatmeal is gluten free or not.  If you are one to believe that oatmeal is gluten free or have bought the gluten free labeled oatmeal then you could also label this whole recipe as gluten free.  This is one of my favorite recipes thus far that I have tried and I think that it adds that little bit of fluff that you find when using white flour.  Being the pancake lover that I am, I want to find a pancake that satisfies my pancake craving that is healthier for me.  As you can see from the recipe, these are loaded with protein from the greek yogurt and egg whites.  Also this recipe can be considered one serving so it makes for a plate full of goodness that fills my belly!  I may try to add blueberries next time.  This recipe made 5 cakes!  I didn’t add syrup to mine to maintain a lower sugar content but did use some whipped butter on top!  These were delicious and I will make them again soon!  I hope you enjoy your pancake breakfast!
