From member ..... I use this recipe below as a pre-workout meal. (I’ve also noticed that many of the dessert-type recipes on the forum grind their oats into flour & use artificial sweeteners – this is why I LOVE this recipe, because you don’t… you keep the oats whole, and you’ll probably find that with the combination of ripe banana & cinnamon there is no need to add extra sweeteners) I enjoy this at just about every PWO meal I have it's that good
Note: This meal can be eaten for breakfast by both C & E body types ONLY. For others, it may be used as a preworkout meal at breakfast, mid morning snack or afternoon snack.
- ½ cup whole oats
- ⅓ cup boiling water
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 egg whites, whisked
- 1 ripe medium banana, mashed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
Soak whole oats in water, vanilla & cinnamon for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. The oats will absorb the liquid fully and completely soften the oats. To this mixture, add the mashed banana and whisked egg whites – use a fork to whisk all these ingredients together.
Heat an electric fry-pan to medium heat (mine is numbered 1-10… I set mine to 4). Place spoonfuls of mixture onto pan to your desired size; pancakes are ready to turn over once little bubbles have appeared and the bottom is golden brown, this usually takes about 5 minutes (if they don’t lift off easy then they’re not ready to turn over, or the heat is not turned on high enough). Flip pancakes over and cook a further couple of minutes. (ARC Gail Note: I think the same rules would apply for any fry pan. Preheat to medium low heat and follow cooking instructions above.) Once cooked, take out of pan and place onto a wire rack to cool for a few minutes before enjoying.
