I love those cheap "just add water" pancakes mixes just as much as the next girl, probably MORE! That said, these pancakes actually don't take that much more time. They truthfully taste delicious, and they are healthy. Pancakes without the guilt, who knew?
Did I mention they keep you full about a million times longer than the processed box mix kind? Try them, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. My little girl who hates pancakes even loved these. Miracles do happen. :)
Total Time: About 5 minutes prep

These delicious pancakes are packed with fiber, making them a great meal to start your day.
Combine milk, oats, and bran in a large bowl. Let stand until rolled oats soften. Add egg and blend. Mix in flour, fructose, salt, and baking soda.
Grease a griddle or frying pan with a little vegetable oil or vegetable oil spray and set over medium-high heat. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the pan and cook for about 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and the edges begin to look dry.
Turn the pancake with a spatula and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve hot with unsweetened jam or syrup.

My husband works, and although I am retired, my schedule is hectic. I like to make sure he has a good breakfast before heading out as he is a diabetic. He loves pancakes, and although I know they tend to raise the blood sugar of some diabetics, these do not raise his. So I mix up jars of this awesome pancake mix and keep it on the pantry shelf. It fills a quart jar and each jar makes approximately 36 four inch pancakes. After making them, I freeze them and store them in a 5 quart ice cream bucket in the freezer. All he has to do is nuke three of them, along with turkey bacon - a little sugar free syrup and he is good to go!
Dump the jar into a big bowl. Add the wet ingredients, mix well. Pour a scant 1/4 cup on griddle, cook a few minutes until brown, flip, cook on other side until brown. This makes approximately 36 four inch pancakes. One serving is 3 pancakes.
