Peanut Butter Coach Cakes

I'm a lover of griddle foods.  I can't help that, and while those parts of my palate haven't grown up, my waist-size and blood pressure have.  In an effort to keep breakfast comfroting, while minimizing the damage to my internals, this morning I threw together a nice and simple recipe for a quick breakfast treat.

Here is all I had laying around, and all you need:

1 1/2 c Coaches Oats (or oatmeal of choice)
1/2 c flour
1/3 c egg whites
2 tbsp butter
1tsp baking powder
1 package (single serving) oikos Greek yogurt
1 big fat spoon full of PB, crunchy if you are awesome

Preaheat the stove to a med / med low setting and turn on your oven to 350

Following all the best pancake recipes, throw all dry ingredients together in a big bowl and mix until they are well blended. Make a well in the center of the bowl.

Add all your wet ingredients to the center of the bowl and stir from the center allowing the dough/batter ball to form.  Get that peanut butter well mixed in there.

Spray your Pam into the hot pan over the sink so you don't have to spend an hour getting the smears off your cook top

Drop child-fist-sized balls into the pan and sear on each side 2.5 minutes just to get that crunchy crust

Throw all your oatcakes on a greased baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes depending on how done you want it.

Stack all your oatcakes on a nice plate and pose them for your preferred social media outlet.

If you are looking for something sweeter, you can add fruit nuts, chocolate chips, or brown sugar/cinnamon.  Don't get too crazy or you'll defeat the whole purpose and may as well just go to cinnabon instead.  Damn that sounds really good right now...
