Combine dry ingredients; stir in oat mixture just until moistened. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold gently into batter. Set aside. Heat butter in a skillet until foamy. Add apples, lemon juice and peel; cook, uncovered for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cook oatcakes; pour batter by 1/4 cupful onto a hot greased griddle. Cook until bubbles form; turn and cook until browned on other side. For apples, combine sugar, cornstarch and nutmeg; add to apple mixture and cook 2 minutes longer or until tender.
