Oatmeal Pancakes, Gluten Free

This is supposed to be the most popular recipe among the contestants on The Biggest Loser.
3 eggs
1 cup rolled oats, dry
1 cup cottage cheese
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and that's your batter! Cook 'em up like you would any other pancake! They taste like a delightful cross between pancakes and French toast. Butter on top of mine, please.
I am definitely going to make these. The original recipe calls for 6 egg whites. I changed it to 3 whole eggs. Seems a shame to throw away the yolks, doesn't it? You choose. Here's a list of all the recipes from the show. I've never watched it. Since I started eating unrefined whole foods and stopped eating sugar, bread, and cheese, I've lost 15 pounds since Easter. My favorite snack is a large bowl of popcorn -- 1/3 cup popped in coconut oil or avocado oil. I eat the whole thing too with fine sea salt. I put the salt in with the oil in my stovetop popper. It is the only snack on the list of unrefined carbs

Oh, this looks so good . . . I went to the doctor last week and was shocked when I stepped on the scales. It sure can sneak up on you. Thanks for the recipe . . . I'll be giving it a try :)
Have a great week.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Me too. I find protein holds me much longer.

Can't wait!

Here's the original recipe from the TV show. It calls for 6 egg whites. One of the comments I read somewhere changed it to 3 whole eggs and I liked that change.

Thank you! I just made these for my son and he loved them. I might say that it's not always easy to please a teenager. I also made syrup out of mushed bananas, rasberries and teaspoon of local honey. Delicious!
I'am looking forward to more recipes you always have some good and healthy. Love your blog as well!
