Every Sunday morning I whip up some oat pancakes for my growing little family
Oats are a winning grain for a few reasons
✔️ They are a slow release carbohydrate source (giving you sustained energy and keeping you feeling full for longer)
✔️They are a good source of beta-glucan (a type of soluble fibre that will help keep your cholesterol down)
✔️ They taste great – say no more !
My Oat Pancake recipe is pretty simple
1. Lightly beat 2 eggs
2. Mix in 1 ⅓ cup buttermilk
3. Sift in 1 cup of self raising flour and ½ cup wholemeal flour
4. Add ½ cup traditional oats
5. Whisk until smooth
6. Cook batter 2-3 min each side
Enjoy topped with fresh berries, banana, some maple syrup & natural yoghurt. For a higher protein option add some toasted nuts - I usually use chopped almonds, cashews, pecans, pepitas, & shredded coconut and lightly toast in a pan for 5 min.
With a cup of coffee, it’s a perfect start to a Sunday
