Mix flour, oats, baking powder in one bowl, and milk, egg whites, molasses in another. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry, stir until blended. Spray oil on a skillet or griddle, heat until quite hot. Ladle batter onto griddle, cook pancakes on both sides until done. Top with pure maple syrup.  We always use pure Vermont Maple Syrup!

Maple syrup is incredibly high in antioxidants, as well as minerals. Each quarter cup of maple syrup contains approximately 100 percent of your recommended daily allowance of manganese, as well at 37 percent of riboflavin, 18 percent of zinc, 7 percent of magnesium, and 5 percent of calcium and potassium.  For other Maple Syrup health information, click here: 10 Facts about Maple Syrup.  All the health benefits only apply to the REAL STUFF!  No, artificial or “table syrup”…it’s got to come from a tree! 🙂
