We have switched to healthier meals and that’s whyI have decided to change our regular pancakes to a healthier version: oatmeal pancakes. This recipe is so versatile since you can add any ingredients you fancy from bananas to raisins and even chocolate chips! You can also use buttermilk instead of regular full cream or skimmed milk. You can even substitute that with oat milk or almond milk (or even homemade applesauce) instead!
This has become my family’s newest breakfast and snack favorite! They like better the texture and flavor of the cinnamon oatmeal pancakes than the regular ones!
You will need:
3/4 cup rolled oats (processed in food processor)
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2-3 tbsps. cane sugar
a pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup milk (buttermilk, full cream, semi or skimmed milk, almond milk, oat milk, applesauce. the possibilities are endless)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 whole egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbsps. olive oil
1. Combine all dry ingredients and process in the food processor.
2. In a bowl, combine all wet ingredients and add to the dry ingrediets. At this point, you can add any other added ingredients such as chocolate chips, raisins, etc.
3. Mix well. Heat a pan, drizzle some olive oil in the pan and pour about 1/4 cup of the batter for every pancake.
4. Serve as desired (hot or cold, with maple syrup, honey, cream cheese or marmalade) and enjoy!
