From Chef Curtiss: This recipe is one I have been thinking about for a long time. I love pancakes, but do not like the excessive sugar rush and the lack of nutrients in the regular recipe, using all purpose white flour. By pureeing the oatmeal mixture in a blender and folding in whipped egg whites just before the griddle, we can achieve a light and fluffy pancake. These can be gluten free only if you buy gluten free oatmeal, meaning that the oatmeal is processed in a separate facility than items that contain gluten.
