We all know that pancakes are amazing. I mean come on, if you don’t like pancakes you’re out of your mind. But what’s really cool about pancakes— besides the fact that they are absolutely delicious— is that you can make them a bunch of different ways. We know that the regular pancake will always be the ultimate breakfast favorite, but we’ve been doing the same thing for years! So no offense Original Stack, but it’s time to give something else a try. With just three ingredients and some delicious toppings, we’re about to completely change your mind about what a pancake is and can be. Get ready to experiment and allow us to introduce you to these Strawberry Cinnamon Oat Cakes.

What you’ll need:
For the Oatcake:

1 cup oats
2 egg whites
Dash of cinnamon to taste


Unsweetened applesauce


1. Combine oats, egg whites and cinnamon in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

2. Spray a pan with non-stick spray and pour the batter onto the pan like you would a regular pancake. The mixture should yield about three medium sized cakes.

3. Cook the oatcakes on each side until they are brown and when they are finished move them to a plate to add your toppings.

4. To make the ultimate oatcake stack, first place one oatcake on a plate and then top it with your desired amount of applesauce and strawberries. Continue this pattern until all your oatcakes are stacked. Feel free to add any extra cinnamon, applesauce or other additional toppings on top.

5. Enjoy!

Not only are these oatcakes super delicious, but they are also a lot healthier than regular pancakes and are only about 80 calories each before toppings. This means that you can indulge in a hefty stack of pancakes without actually feeling like you just indulged in a hefty stack of pancakes. These oatcakes can be finished with any different combination of toppings you desire. So try our strawberry applesauce recipe this time, but the next creation is all on you. See you later Aunt Jemima, we’re moving onto better things.
