1/3 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup blue cornmeal
2 tablespoon sbrown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 large eggs, separated

Combine all dry ingredients together in large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, slightly beat egg yolks. Slowly add buttermilk to egg yolks. Next add egg mixture to dry ingredients, stirring until moist. Beat egg whites until stiff; then fold into batter.
