Easy weekend pancakes: delicious and nutritious 

I came up with this easy weekend pancakes recipe because I love pancakes, but they’re not always made with the healthiest ingredients. I knew I could improve on that, so I experimented a bit and came up with these beauties!

Pancakes are a wonderful weekend indulgence, and I want to feel good about the food I eat on a regular basis. It also has to be quick and easy to prepare, because I don’t like messing around for too long in the kitchen.

These easy weekend pancakes are made with healthy ingredients and taste sooo good!

So let me present my easy weekend pancakes: just throw all of the ingredients in a blender, cook and enjoy. It really is that easy, I promise.

Even better, these are made with wholesome, healthy ingredients, there’s no refined sugar and they’re delish!

Drizzle with some pure maple syrup, top with your favourite fruit and enjoy a leisurely start to your weekend.

EASY WEEKEND PANCAKES

These pancakes are a tasty, healthy weekend breakfast or brunch indulgence. They're also really easy to make – just throw all of the ingredients in a blender, then cook your pancakes.
Servings 2 people

Ingredients

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • cup Plain Greek Yoghurt
  • ¼ cup milk of your choice or use cream for extra creaminess and indulgence
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ banana, chopped into chunks save the other half for topping
  • Pure Maple Syrup and your choice of fruit toppings

Instructions

  • Put all of the ingredients, (except the maple syrup and toppings), into a blender or food processor and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan and spray evenly with an oil spray.
  • Pour spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and cook over a medium-high heat until the pancakes are golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve immediately, drizzled with maple syrup and topped with the leftover banana and any other fruit you like.
  • To keep the pancakes free from added sugars, instead of topping with Maple Syrup try warming some strawberries in the microwave until they become syrupy – yummo! 

Recipe notes

This recipe will make 2-3 large pancakes, so adjust the quantities accordingly.
 
You can substitute any flour you prefer for the oats, or combine half and half – buckwheat flour or flax seed work really well with oat flour.
