Apple & Oat Pancakes
These pancakes are a great way to start the day, the oats fill you up, they’re healthy and also gluten free. I recently shared this recipe with a friend who is gluten free and has two young children. She now has requests from her kids to make them these every morning! You could make little bite sized ones for smaller children, so they can hold them in their hands.
190g of Porridge Oats
Knob of Butter
Tablespoon of Honey
Tablespoon of Yogurt
1. Put your oats in a food processor and blitz until you have a dough flour.
2. Peel and grate your apples, but set one to the side.
3. Add the banana, 1 of your grated apples and milk to the oats and blitz until everything is blended together.
4. Heat a pan on a medium heat and add a knob of butter.
5. When the pan is hot and the butter is melted, pour some of your mixture into the centre of the pan.
6. Cook for around 4 minutes, before flipping and cooking the other side for 4 minutes.
7. I put the cooked pancakes on a plate covered with some kitchen foil to keep them warm when I’m cooking the rest of the pancakes.
8. Once all your pancakes are cooked, stack your pancakes on your plate, I do a stack of x3 per person.
9. Top your pancakes with a nice dollop of yogurt, I use coconut flavour, but your can use your favourite flavour or whatever you have available in your fridge. Add your grated apple and finish with a drizzle of runny honey.
I tend to make little pancakes and get around 6 pancakes from the mixture listed above.
