Flourless Oatmeal Pancakes (Gluten Free)

I make these pancakes almost every Sunday for my family. They are healthy and delicious. You can get creative with these. I have been adding Organic Pumpkin Puree this month making them Oatmeal Pumpkin Pancakes. You can add a banana or any fruit of choice to change them up.  I also added an apple a few times and it was amazing.  This makes a perfect amount for myself, husband, and toddler.

Ingredients:
1 cup of Oatmeal ( use Certified Gluten Free, if you have Gluten intolerance)
½ tsp of baking powder
3 Eggs
1 Egg White
½ cup of Low Fat Plain Yogurt or Organic Non Fat Greek Style Yogurt
½ tsp of Vanilla Extract
1 tsp of Cinnamon and can add a pinch of nutmeg
* Optional (1/3 cup of Pumpkin Puree or 1 small banana smashed or add any fruit at the end) 1 cup of organic Frozen blueberries for Blueberry pancakes
For extra protein or fat you can add a few Tablespoons of Flaxmeal.

Directions : Grind Oatmeal to a fine powder in a blender or food processor. Then blend the rest of the ingredients to a smooth mixture. Lightly spray a griddle or pan and cook at medium heat. Can make many little small pancakes or several large one.

These look great!

If you're interested in a little more fiber and preground oats, you can also buy Oat Bran at Trader Joe's. It makes a great textured pancake.

Keep the recipes coming!

Thanks Roland for the suggestions.

Regina, So glad you like the pancake. It does make a good recovery meal.

Lauren,

I've been doing your plank exercises (YouTube) and re-tooling my intake including experimenting with whether living Gluten Free will improve my hypothyroidism.

I was getting a little grumpy about losing my sprouted grain bread based sandwiches and made your pumpkin pancakes intending them as a treat for my daughter, age 4.

We used 2 servings/4 Tbsp of Spectrum Cold Milled Organic Ground Premium Flaxseed and Grace Harbor Farms Golden Guernsey Vanilla Yogurt (whole milk) which made 1 adult-entree-sized serving plus 2 daughter-sized servings or 18 silver dollar sized, very fluffy pancakes.

I was surprised when I plugged all the ingredients into my LiveStrong DailyPlate counter and discovered that not only did this recipe target several thyroid supporting ingredients but that pumpkin is an important part of my anti-inflammation protocols.

Happy me, they were fun to research and make, but now I also *surprise* get to eat them. Joy!

Topped with some blueberries and a dollop of yogurt, my daughter, a budding foodie, prefers this to an ice cream Sunday. lol

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…
