Skinny Oat Arepas
Skinny Oat Arepas are the perfect way to satisfy your cravings without the guilt! Easy to make, tasty and full of goodness.
- 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.
To keep the arepas hot while cooking the rest put them in an oven at 325º 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.
