Yummy healthy oatmeal pancakes!

HIII! As you know by now (since I've been blasting it all over the blog... ;) ) I'm quite interested in health food and exercise. Did you know that on the internet, there is not ONE (repeat NOT EVEN ONE) pancake recipe that uses only oat flour!!! I finally decided that if I wanted to eat healthy yummy pancakes I would have to take matters into my own hands. (Mwahahaha...) So, here is a heart healthy, delicious pancake recipe! As a point of interest, oatmeal is amazing because it can be gluten free (gluten free certified oats). It has a great balance of fats, carbohydrates and protein (it's one of the most protein-rich grains known. Quinoa is better for protein, though), has a good amount of fiber, and is low in calories which makes it great for any diet (as in lifestyle, not literal diet). Studies show that it lowers bad blood cholesterol. Because of the low glycemic index, it is absorbed into the body slowly, which keeps your feeling full longer and your blood level steady. I'll end the lecture now. If you're interested, try out the recipe!

1 1/2 cups oat flour (blend oatmeal in a magic bullet/good blender. If you're gluten free, make sure to get gluten free certified oats!)
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon xylitol (or any other natural/healthy sugar sub. You can also just use white sugar if you need to)
1 1/4 cup milk (you can sub water and get yummy results)
1 egg
3 tblsp. extra virgin olive oil      

Sift together the dry ingredients and then add in the wet ingredients. Mix well, and cook! Turn over the pancakes when you start seeing bubbles on the surface. And then... eat! xD I hope you guys like this recipe!
