Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

I absolutely love pancakes unfortunately they are traditionally not very healthy. Especially when they are smothered with butter and syrup. So when I saw these healthy pancakes on Cara's Cravings I was very excited. Not only are they good for you but they taste great and are filling too. A win, win in my book. I made these on a Sunday night for the coming week's breakfast, and they tasted just as fresh on Friday as they did when I made them.

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes:

1 cup quick cook oats
1/4 c flour
1 1/2 T brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 c non fat vanilla yogurt
1/4 c skim milk
1 egg + 1 egg white (I substituted 1/4 c egg beater for the whole egg)
2 T apple sauce
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup frozen blueberries

1. Combine the first 6 ingredients is a microwavable mixing bowl and mix together, then stir in the milk and yogurt.
2. Microwave for 90 seconds.
3. Beat egg and egg white until light colored and frothy. (a few minutes)
4. Fold the egg into the oatmeal mixture along with the applesauce, cinnamon and the blueberries.
5. Drip by 1/4 cup fulls onto a non stick griddle and cook over medium low heat, flipping when tops are bubbly.
Makes 10 pancakes
