I’m always on the lookout for a recipe that provides all of the following:

high nutrition, low calorie, good taste, potentially portable

I found a recipe for Oatmeal pancakes in Runner’s Magazine

 a while back that is a great start to the day. I added some blueberries and like the recipe

even better with that splash of  berry  flavor.

They are nutritious and stick with you until lunchtime.

They are sturdy enough to make ahead and take along.

This is the recipe:

1 1/4 cup rolled oats

2 cups nonfat milk (I substituted Almond Milk)

1 egg

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup toasted wheat germ

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 teaspoons stevia

2 teaspoons canola oil

1/2 teaspoon

1 cup blueberries

Mix wet ingredients, set aside, mix dry ingredients and then combine both. 

 gently fold in blueberries, cook until brown on griddle.

This recipe makes about 12 pancakes with each having approx. 95 calories.
