I thought I'd share this for all of you that have to cook for many others. My family LOVES multigrain pancakes and I don't cook them much if I can't eat them. The other day, I mixed up my blueberry oatmeal (maple would work great too) with a little less water. It was fairly thick. I sprayed my pan and dolloped it onto the pan and cooked it like a pancake, flipping it 1/2 way through cooking. I then used 1/2 tsp.

The coolwhip added a buttery taste..

Yummy. Now I can cook pancakes and eat them too!..

I tried this and I must have done something wrong. The oatmeal didn't get cooked or something and I had to throw it away. I will try it again though, and maybe add more water? It smelled yummy though. :-)..

Somebody else posted something similar a while ago and I make them almost daily. I add a little bit of eggbeaters (maybe a teaspoon). The water plus the eggbeaters is about 1/3 cup of liquid. I also sometimes stir in some cinnamon and yesterday I added some Banana syrup (I love banana pancakes)..

Giraffegirl, you have to cook it longer than a usual pancake or it does seem raw inside..

You do have to watch that SF syrup, unless it's Walden Farms or some other kind with no carbs...the Cary's has too many carbs for every day...

Yep I can't remember who originally posted it, but I've been having a yummy big pancake nearly every day! I mix a packet of oatmeal (maple and brown sugar is my favorite, but I've also used the blueberry) with 1/8 of cup of egg beaters and 1/8 of a cup of water, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. spray a pan with pam, and spread the mix out flattened on that. It takes a while to cook each side, but I let it get a little browned before flipping it & then the same. I use between 1/8 and 1/4 cup of the walden farms maple syrup on it. YUM!!..

Comment #3

Yep, I have been eating a pancake every day for at least 6 months now. Love them!..

Comment #4

These oatmeal 'pancakes' are real life savers for me. I make mine w/ just a little water. I make it in the evening to have the next day. I wrap it in tinfoil and keep it in the fridge. I bring it w/ me to work and have it as a meal. Its great in the car too...easy to eat....yes, I eat it cold w/ out any syrup...

Comment #5

This is very good with the apple cinnamon oatmeal too.....also...try the Walden's Farms Blueberry syrup....its awesome...

Comment #6

I tried to make the pancakes this morning..well I should say I made..not tried.......I did the recipe that said a package of oatmeal(i used the maple & br sug) then 1/8 cup water and 1/8 cup egg sub. made 4 little pancakes, didn't ahve any trouble with them not cooking etc. Now I dont' have any syrup or anything for I ate them just by picking them up and munching with my tea. I enjoyed them. But what kind of syrup is allowed, I was never one for syrup, but it may make them more of a treat. Just a sugar free syrup or does it have to be something else too??.

Thanks for the idea and the recipe..........nice to find other ways to enjoy the Medifast meals..

Have a great weekend all....


Comment #7

The syrup must be sugar-free and if you find it without carbs, that much better, as it won't slow your weight loss. There are some at the local grocery stores, just check the labels first...

Comment #8

Can we also use the Medifast scrambled eggs in this recipe?..

Comment #9

I use 1 tsp dried egg white powder and 1/8 tsp baking powder mixed w/ the dry oatmeal. it definitely improves the texture. I also add 1 or 2 drops liquid sucralose...

Comment #10

I tried making the pancakes and the batter was very stiff like the consistency of cookie dough. Is this right? I enjoyed them; more of a vehicle for eatting the sf syrup which was wonderful..


Comment #11

Try adding 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of baking powder to your pancake batter. They puff nicely like regular pancakes and seem to cook more thoroughly. I have them almost every morning...

Comment #12

Just add enough water until you get the consistency you want for pancakes. I like it a little thinner so they are more like crepes. I also find that if I let it sit a little bit before cooking, the oatmeal absorbs some of the liquid. I then add a little more water so I have a thick pancake-y batter. I can definitely pour it. I don't think any of us have an exact measurement so you just have to play with it...

Comment #13

You can use just Medifast eggs as well. The "crepes or swedish pancakes" recipe makes the most AMAZING pancakes. Put a little Walden Farms pancake syrup on them and I swear it's like eating the real things. Scout's honor. That recipe can be found here .

Except that I just use a small skillet and pour the batter into it as though it were a regular pancake rather than coating the entire bottom...

Comment #14

What great ideas. I love pancakes too and use the oatmeal and egg whites in the VitaMix. It makes two large pancakes with 4 whites and I like to put peanut butter and a tsp of jelly in the middle. I make this most mornings, yum...

Comment #15 many egg whites do you use? I LOVE my VitaMix!!! One of the best things I ever purchased...

Comment #16

I have been eating crepes or pancakes for nearly every medifast meal the past two! you can make them with every single flavor of shake or oatmeal, and possibly pudding, which I will try next. if you use oatmeal, you really dont even need the eggwhites, they are quite good with just water. I just find that I'm happier when the food I eat is warm..

Comment #17

Fluffymom - Vitamix is an industrial strength blender. My mom had one when I was growing up, and I searched high and low to find one for myself. It's motor is so powerful it makes hot soup with out heating the ingredients & icecream without an icecream machine. It also turns grains into flour, peanuts into peanut butter, as well as the usual blender functions. Love it!! The only draw back is I cook for one, and it is not small and compact like the Magic Bullet...

Comment #18

I made the pancakes yesterday and it was hard. Am I supposed to cook it in the microwave first and then put it on the pan? Please somebody let me know...

Comment #19

I hadn't made pancakes yet, so after I read this post I made a very nice apple cinnamon pancake for lunch. I did the very simple version, 1 AC oatmeal 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp Molly McButter and just enough water to get it pancake batter consistency. I topped it with 1 tbs of PB it was a very yummy lunch. Thanks for the ideas...

Comment #20

Budrflykis - thank you! Sounds like a great machine - but I agree with you - washing it out after every shake would become tedious. I only have a normal kitchen blender and it is driving me nuts! I am going to start looking for something else - but not as much $$ as the Mag Bullet. Thanks for your answer!.

PS - you started in April too - I started April 11th - how about you?..

Comment #21

Hi Fluffymom - I started on April is it going for you so far? If you want a small blender for shakes cheaper then the magic bullet get the Take n' Shake from Sharper Image. I bought mine on Thursday just to keep in my office. It does a great job with the shakes, I still have to try it with the pudding & ice cream recipe. It's compact and the canister convers to a water bottle type spout to drink right out of. It was a good purchase for $29.99...
