Oatmeal Banana Pancakes!

I neither claim ownership over this recipe or want credit for it’s awesomeness, because I got it from a friend over a month ago and I was really excited to try it eventually.

My roommate received a  food processor for her birthday. (I felt wrong using first, but I don’t think she would mind.) 

(It was also the present that prompted this comment from her teenage sister: “You know you have been single too long when you are receiving gifts that should be on a wedding registry.”) (Teenagers! I know!)

However, I want to share it because I loved it and at least one of the four people that were at my house last night liked it.   

(One said, “It doesn’t taste like a pancake but it’s good.”) 
(It’s okay she owes me for comments that I made about her cutting her hair into a pixy cut. “That’s risky” might have been one.)

Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
(I had to remember to take a picture because I knew I wanted to share the recipe!)
4 Egg Whites
1/2 cup of quick oats
1 Banana
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp flaxseed
1/2 tsp baking soda
Dash of milk (You might want to add a little more if you think the mixer is too thick.)
Directions: Mix all the ingredients together in a blender or a food processor.  Then I put about a 1/3 of a cup scoop into the pan.  It made about 5 servings.
