Written by Joey Robichaux

Would you like to lose some weight -- in your baking, that is? This one secret ingredient (that you likely already have in your kitchen) is not only inexpensive and healthy, it'll also add a bit of "cloud" to your biscuits and pancakes!

And that ingredient is ... Oatmeal!

Yep, I know what you're thinking ... just give me a moment and trust me on this.

For instance, to make super light pancakes, I'll use normal, non-instant, oatmeal. I'll prepare a 1 to 1 1/2 serving size portion, usually inrepparttar microwave.

Next, add your normal pancake ingredients torepparttar 136611 oatmeal. I normally addrepparttar 136612 milk first to cool downrepparttar 136613 oatmeal (don't wantrepparttar 136614 eggs to cook!). You may notice thatrepparttar 136615 batter is a little frothy -- especially if you let it sit a bit. That's oatmeals extra viscosity coming into play.

Cookrepparttar 136616 pancakes just like you normally do. They'll lookrepparttar 136617 same and tasterepparttar 136618 same (no oatmeal taste). However, they'll rise up nice, light, and fluffy!

To make super light biscuits, you'll alter your normal biscuit recipt just a tiny bit. Preparerepparttar 136619 oatmeal as usual -- but, sincerepparttar 136620 prepared oatmeal is fairly liquid, it'll make your biscuit dough into a batter ... IF you addrepparttar 136621 normal amount of milk!
