½ cup rolled oats
1 ½ tsp baking powder
2 tbsp maple sugar flakes or sucanat
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp sea salt
8 egg whites (or 1 cup)
1 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
¾ cup cooked sweet potato, puréed
2 tsp vanilla extractIn a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients – flour, oats, baking powder, sweetener, spices, sea salt. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine all wet ingredients – egg whites, cottage cheese, yogurt, sweet potato and vanilla extract.
Place wet ingredients into the well of the dry ingredients. Mix until moistened, do not over mix. Set aside for 30 minutes to soften oats.
In the meantime, preheat oven to 200˚ F and preheat a nonstick griddle to medium high heat. Mist a jelly roll pan with olive oil.
Spoon ½ cup of batter on to the hot griddle for each pancake. Bake until golden brown on either side and cooked through. Keep pancakes warm on the prepared jelly roll pan in the preheated oven.
Enjoy plain or with a tablespoon of unsweetened applesauce.
