Happy hump day! We’re half way through the week, thank goodness! It seems like the days are dragging on. I blame it on being the first week back to work after being off for 2 weeks… Thankfully, our cruise is only 10 days away
Thank you Jenn from Peas & Crayons for hosting another tasty link-up!
Peanut Butter Oatcakes
¼ cup oats
2 tablespoons peanut flour
1 teaspoon stevia
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 egg whites
2-4 tablespoons water
*use less water for thicker pancakes, more water for thinner pancakes*
1. In a bowl, add all of the ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth. Note: I add the dry ingredients first, then the wet ingredients.
2. Spray a medium-sized skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat.
3. For each pancake, spoon 2 generous tablespoons of batter into the pan. Sprinkle with raisins if you’d like. Cook each pancake until a few bubbles form and burst, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 more minutes.
5. Serve the stack of ‘cakes with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
