1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats

1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese

1/2 cup egg beaters

1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

dash of salt

water ( optional )

1.  Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor ( I think next time I will use my magic bullet!) and process until smooth and combined.  About 30 seconds to 1 minutes.  If batter seems too thick to you, add a bit of water to loosen. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. 

2.  Heat med nonstick skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray on med-high heat.  Add batter, about a 1/4 cup at at time ( for the smaller cakes, a bit more for bigger cakes) and spread evenly with a spoon.  When bubbles form on top and the edges start to get dry, flip and cook other side.  Repeat with the rest of batter.
