Dairy Free Raspberry Oatmeal Pancakes

raspberry pancakes

In the past when I made Oatmeal Pancakes, I would use Cottage Cheese, but a lot of people told me that they didn’t eat dairy.  I rarely have it anyway.  I started trying them without any Cottage Cheese and these are great.  

I also added Raspberries because of the way that they fight cancer and also fight fat.  After the recipe I have posted what you can expect from Raspberries.
