:: Oh so oaty pancakes!

March 4, 2008 at 10:20 am 3 comments

We have a visitor staying with us at the moment, and he eats a lot, no wait, A HELL OF A LOT! After a big dinner of chicken and rice, the other night, he ate two big bowls of Special K, a Banana, and a bag of popcorn. I wouldn’t mind, and apologies for being crude, but what worries me is that the amount of toilet paper were going through does not reflect the amount of food being eaten. As you can imagine I am a little worried about his well being, so I decided that healthy longlasting breakfast, full of fibre would do the trick and perhaps keep him running a little more regular.

I do hope, I haven’t put you off the recipe completely, because it’s a darn good one, a healthy twist on classic American pancakes. Don’t get put off by the use of oat flour, just whizz up some oats in a blender it takes seconds and is much healthier than the refined white stuff. I got the recipe from Stella’s Kitchen Blog which gives lots of different options- we used goats milk out of personal choice- so adapt it whatever you want just make sure the balance between your wet and dry ingredients stay the same.

Oatmeal Pancakes

1 cup fat free milk (or water, or goats milk)

3/4 cup oatmeal (uncooked, quick or regular oats)
3/4 cup oatmeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 large whites

1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground

For baking recipe’s like this I like to be able to attack it systematically, I’m not sure why. So First of all, heat your milk in a saucepan until warm and set aside. Blend your oatmeal flour and mix with the rest of the oatmeal, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a seperate bowl whisk your egg whites until they reach a stiff consistancy.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients in one bowl and mix until blended. Then add the egg whites and fold into the mixture. To cook simply add a full ladel of the mix to a warm pan and it takes just less than a minute each side or until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup, fresh fruit, or whatever takes your fancy!

    hey, I just checked out for your blog a few days ago. Your food really reminds me of Jamie Oliver(from the naked chef)because of all the natural sunlight, it’s so delightful =). i tried your oaty pancake recipe, it turned out really well except i added vanilla and some sugar. The only thing i’m curious is how do you get your pancake to come out so brown? haha mine’s always look eggy? (i’m not sure how you describe it.) a tip would be great thanks =) Sunshine

    I had some friends over this morning for breakfast so I tried out your pancake recipe on them. It went down an absolute treat! I added a bit of thinly sliced apple to some of them with a little extra cinnamon and they were gobbled up. I have a feeling I will be using this recipe over and over again. Thanks for posting it!
