Gluten-free protein pancakes

I wanted to post this quick and easy recipe as a follow up to the last post 23 ingredients, 10 simple and budget friendly real food dishes.  Well, make it 11 with this super simple pancake dish that also works really well as a take-along toddler snack.

1 cup of thick cut oats, ground in a coffee grinder or food processor
1 cup yogurt (greek, regular, goat milk or sheep's milk yogurt will all work)
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 dash cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup
Mix the ingredients well and cook as you would a regular pancake.

This recipe is adapted from the Biggest Loser pancakes but their recipe just uses egg whites and cottage cheese.  I like the yogurt because I almost always have it in my fridge and the entire egg because the yolk has so many nutrients that I don't want to miss out on (choline which is important for women of childbearing age, healthy fats, B vitamins etc.).  If you have cholesterol issues or diabetes, you may want to eliminate the yolk depending on how many eggs you eat a week.  This recipe contains about 5 grams of protein per pancake.  They're also great topped with nut butter.

And PS, here's an interesting article about what wheat and dairy may be doing to our brains.
