  • 2 cups Quaker┬« Oats Quick 1-minute
  • 1 1/2 cup milk ( I used low fat)
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Harina P.A.N. flour (pre-cooked white corn flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cilantro and/or spinach leaves (optional)


  • Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until everything is well incorporated. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Heat small skillet over medium-low heat. Add 1/4 cup of dough into the skillet. If necessary, use the back of a spoon to shape it into a circle. Cover and cook for 2 -3 minutes. Uncover, flip and cook the other side, for about 2 more minutes, or until the arepa is golden brown and a crust forms on both sides. Repeat until you finish all the dough.
  • Split each arepa in half and fill them with whatever you like: cheese, ham, egg, beans, chicken, beef, tuna, etc.
  • Serve immediately.


To keep the arepas hot while cooking the rest put them in an oven at 325┬║ F.
Harina P.A.N. Flour can be found in the international foods aisle of your local store or in any Latino store.
You can use spinach instead of cilantro.
