Amazing Flourless Oatmeal Pancake

Doesn't it look yummy? And it's so filling! One of these suckers will last me 'till lunch (which isn't until 2 pm!).

The original idea for this "pancake" came from a client - her version was pretty tasty, but I knew I could make it better!

You will need:

-1/2 old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant or quick-cooking)
-1 egg or 1/3 c egg substitute
-Splash of milk (it's an arbitrary measurement, yes, but I will explain below)
-1 tablespoon of sugar, or a packet of artificial sweetener
-Cinnamon (to taste)
-Pinch salt
-1 cup of fresh or frozen berries, sliced banana, peaches, etc

Put a small skillet on medium heat and let the pan get nice and hot.

In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients - save the milk for last and add just enough to make sure the oats are wet and that everything will get nicely coated.

Spray the pan with cooking spray and add the oats. Use a fork or spoon to help create a nice, even pancake.  Cook for about 5-7 minutes, until the bottom is set. Flip it over, turn the heat down to low, and cook another 3-5 minutes.

How easy was that?
