Therefore, if you are on a low glycemic index diet, or looking for diabetic recipes, or trying to eat healthy grains and veggies, or trying to lose weight, then this savory spinach oatmeal pancake is for you. They are great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner…anything. It takes under 5 mins to prep and 12 minutes to make these pancakes and you won’t believe how tasty they are! —Not A Curry

What You'll Need
  • 3/3 cup oatmeal (instant)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 piece egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped bell peppers (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 pieces green chilies, chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  1. Mix oatmeal, spinach, and water in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a large bowl, add egg, chili powder, salt, cracked black paper, and whisk until properly incorporated. (This batter keeps in the fridge for a week. Make a big batch and fry a few pancakes every morning).
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
  4. Sprinkle onions, tomatoes, green chilies on top, and flip when the bottom side has browned (approximately 2 minutes). Cook the other side for 1 more minute, flip, sprinkle some feta, and serve immediately.

Sounds interesting, but one “piece” of egg?
