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.
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ⅓ 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
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!
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.
