Healthy Breakfast Pancake

I love something hot for breakfast that will stick to your ribs.  I also love cereal, but sometimes that's just not enough...and sometimes I can't be trusted with a whole box of good cereal because it's too easy to eat all the time, all the day long.
That's why I love this breakfast:
The Healthy Oatmeal Eggwhite Pancake
- 1/2 cup of Old Fashioned Oats
- 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites or 2 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp of Baking Powder
- 1 ripe banana smashed up
- Pinch of salt
Here are the ingredients before I mashed them all together:
Make sure to really coat the pan with a lot of cooking spray so it won't stick.  Then pour the batter into the pan, over medium heat and form into pancake shape.  Cook for just a couple of minutes on each side, flipping once.  And there you have it:
This wasn't my best flip in the pan but that doesn't affect taste!
 A no sugar added, no crazy ingredient, all good for you inside, breakfast pancake!
Top with whatever your heat desires.  For this particular pancake I chose chopped pecans, almond butter, cinnamon, and blueberries. 
I also ate it about an hour and a half after I started putting it together.  It turns out breakfasts that require many hands, hot pans, and any attention whatsoever don't mix well with the morning needs of a newborn.  It was worth the wait though when I had it for what can only be called brunch.
