Oat pancakes have been on my ‘must make’ list for a while now. It’s a very long list. I’m not sure I’ll ever reach the end of it. When we were away recently Mr. LMUTB picked up a couple of fitness magazines in the airport and spotted something similar. He had asked me to make some for him to try but then we lost the recipe. Oh dear.
Sunday is the only day each week that we have the luxury of enjoying a leisurely breakfast together and so each week I take requests for a ‘special’ breakfast. Each week the answer is the same, “porridge, and some eggs please”. This doesn’t sit well with my need to experiment in the kitchen and to serve up lavish meals for my man. As we had a bank holiday this week I decided to go a bit mad and finally try out some oat pancakes. Topped with berries and yoghurt plates were cleared and they were requested for weekday breakfasts for the rest of the week. I think he liked them.
50g oat flakes
1 large egg
120ml almond milk
1tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
oil, for cooking
Blitz the oats in a food processor until they resemble wholemeal flour.
Mash the banana, or purée using a food processor.
In a large bowl lightly whisk the egg. Add the almond milk and whisk to incorporate. Add the ground oats, banana, baking powder and salt and whisk to a smooth batter. Just be aware that this batter is fairly runny.
Heat a frying pan over a medium high heat. Pour in some oil and allow that to heat up. Drop ice cream scoops of the batter onto the hot pan, when bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes they are ready to turn, carefully flip over and allow to cook on the other side. Repeat until you have used all of the remaining batter.
Serve with berries, yoghurt and a drizzle of honey, or toppings of your choice.
A little bit of housekeeping:
I’ve been a little preoccupied with various things lately which means I have a bit of a backlog of things to blog about so if it’s OK with you I will try to blog a little more than normal over the next week or two. I have some lovely books and other bits to write about so apologies if posts are a little product orientated for a few days, normal recipe service will resume shortly, I promise.Pin It
