When to take Oat Pancakes?
Oat pancakes are an excellent choice to have for breakfast with a fruit juice or coffee, they will provide you with enough energy and nutrients to start the day off well. They are also an alternative as a pre- or post-workout, or as an excellent snack that will provide us with quality nutrients.
How to cook Oat Pancakes?
We will just need a couple of basic elements in order to enjoy this fabulous and appetizing meal:
- Oat Flour
- Egg Whites
In some cases, we will need to add a whole egg to the mix, milk (which can be from dairy or vegetable), or some fruit. Optionally, we can add other complementary elements in order to enhance the flavor, such as cinnamon, sweetener, or vanilla. There are 3 possibilities regarding the egg whites: use the ones from eggs, liquid egg whites, or a better choice (since they do not need refrigeration and their lifespan is much longer), Egg Whites powder.
On the other hand, using a non-stick pan will prevent the pancakes from “sticking” to the pan and we will not need a lot of oil as well. Regarding this last point, it is advisable to use either olive oil or coconut oil as an alternative, which will provide them a flavor that you are definitely not used to.
Egg Albumin: Evoegg
In the case of egg whites, we can use a variant: egg albumin powder. In this way, we will not need to keep the egg whites in the fridge, nor consume them in a relatively short period of time. The advantage of the powder format will precisely be that we can store it for longer and replace it when it is necessary. The SportSeries catalog has Evoegg available in 2 flavors: chocolate and vanilla, which we will take into account when it comes to cooking our oat pancakes in order to achieve the flavor we desire.

What is truly important is the nutritional supply and the breakdown of the macronutrients, which is very balanced and, like the recipes, they allow a lot of variants which can be changed with the ingredients that we want, so we can always “play with the calories”.
