I love pancakes. I think everyone does. I’ve never met anyone who said to me, ‘’ I don’t like pancakes’’. And if I ever did, I would stuff one of these in their face –problem solved. The oat flour gives the pancakes a rather nice texture. I usually add a bit of cinnamon (you may have noticed I add cinnamon to almost everything #obsessed ). Add in a few tablespoons of unsweetened chocolate chips and serve with Walden Farms or peanut butter and agave, sliced bananas, strawberries with vegan whipped cream, it’s up to you. I usually have mine with peanut butter, bananas, and agave syrup (depending on how busy my day will be and how much fuel I need).
How can anyone resist that? Seriously.
- 50g oat flour
- ¼ tsp of baking powder
- 2-3 packets of stevia
- 1 egg
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Around ⅛-1/4 cup Low fat/skim milk (more for thinner pancakes, less for thicker ones like mine, personally I think the thick ones are better and they cook and flip easier)
- If you like your pancakes a bit richer, add half TBs of melted butter or coconut oil. But I think they are fine without it.
- Combine the oat flour, BP, stevia and cinnamon, mix to get the sweetener and BP evenly through the oats.
- Add in the egg and a little milk and mix. Keep adding milk until you have the desired consistency.
- Fry on a hot non-stick pan. If the batter in the bowl starts to thicken while you are frying just add a tiny bit of extra milk. This happens as oats tend to soak up moisture, so don’t leave your batter lying around for too long.
- Dig in!
Why you should eat them:
Oats are one of the best foods you could eat for breakfast. They are a high carb food which is exactly what you need to start to your day with because carbs=energy. Oats have a low GI which is what makes them the perfect breakfast food, the slow rise in blood sugar gives you the feeling of fullness for longer than if you were to eat the same amount of a simple carbs.
