Hearty High-Fiber/Protein Pancakes

Hearty High-Fiber/Protein Pancakes (1 serving)
1/2 c oats (uncontaminated if you have a gluten intolerance)
2T ground salba
2T ground flaxseeds
2T psyllium husks
2 tsp splenda
cinnamon to taste
6 egg whites (3/4c measure of egg beaters egg whites only)
Heat pan over medium-low heat. Mix dry ingredients together. Add egg whites to dry, stir and allow to thicken slightly. Don't leave this mixture too long before cooking as it can get too thick really quickly as psyllium, salba and flax absorb liquid easily and fast. Cook on hot pan, makes 4 large pancakes. Top with 3Tbsp warm sugar-free maple syrup or agave nectar, or your favorite no-sugar added fruit preserves.
