It’s pancake day tomorrow so I thought I’d share my healthy oat pancakes with you just in case you fancy a healthy option tomorrow!
Wherever possible, we keep Sunday aside as a family day where we spend some quality time together seeing as we seem to spend less and less time together during the week now that the kids are older and have different priorities (in no particular order: football, makeup, snapchat, friends and Fifa).
We start the day together with a family breakfast although to be fair, we could call it brunch seeing as it’s usually almost lunchtime by the time the kids surface on a weekend. I don’t want to spend forever in the kitchen cooking and then cleaning when I want to be spending time with everyone else but I do like Sunday morning breakfast to be a bit different to the usual cereal or porridge.
I always try to cook something quick and simple and one of our favourite Sunday breakfasts is pancakes. We used to make these amazing fluffy American style pancakes but more recently we’ve been having a healthier version which is just as tasty if you ask me – Oat Pancakes!
Oat Pancakes are delicious, filling, cheap, easy to make AND they’re free on Slimming World if you use your HeB porridge allowance and some of your HeA milk. What more could you ask for from a recipe?
Healthy Oat Pancakes….
- 35 g porridge oats
- 60 ml milk (normal or almond milk is great)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tablespoon of sweetener (you could use sugar if you prefer)
- Mix the ingredients together.
- Heat your pan and spray a little fry light on it.
- Spoon in your pancake mix, the quantities I've shared makes three when I make them.
- Be patient while they cook - don't squish them with your spatula or they'll lose their fluffiness. They're ready to flip when you can lift them with a spatula and see that underneath is a lovely speckled golden brown.
- When they're ready to turn over, flip them with a spatula and cook the other side until it's golden too.
- I serve mine with some fruit and strawberry puree but the kids prefer nutella and bananas!
