Healthy oat pancakes (no flour, no sugar)๐Ÿ˜

I had many bad experiences with healthy pancakes. After an underwhelming attempt to make fit banana pancakes (no flour, milk etc.), which disintegrated into pieces, I gave up and began to avoid such recipes. But these oat pancakes looked just too good and I decided to give them a chance.

After making the batter, first concerns arised. The consistency seemed too wishy-washy, but I spilled the batter on the pan. I had no idea how long I should fry them (I hoped that when they turn golden brown it wonโ€™t be too late), but in the end… after having a plate full of oat pancakes, I wanted more!

So, now I believe itโ€™s possible to enjoy healthy pancakes (these contain NO sugar and flour!). Below I attach the recipe (inspired by Nigella) with my own comments, which will hopefully help you๐Ÿ˜˜

INGREDIENTS (2 servings, cca. 8 pancakes โ€“ depends on the size):

  • 100 g porridge oats (not instant)
  • 100 ml milk
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional โ€“ I love cinnamon, so in my view it gives the pancakes the perfect flavor)
  • some oil for frying

HOW TO:

the batter consistency
  1. Blend oats, add baking powder and cinnammon.
  2. In another bowl, mix milk, vanilla extract and fluffed eggs. Then add the dry ingredients and whisk until you get quite a smooth batter.
  3. Pour a bit of oil on a pan and spread it all over it (then โ€žwhip it offโ€œ and leave just a faint layer of it).
  4. Place the batter on the pan (form round pancakes with a spoon) and fry for 2/3 minutes on each side.
  5. The pancakes will be done when small โ€žbubblesโ€œ will appear on the surface and they will also turn golden brown.
  6. Serve with fresh fruits, jam, honey or whatever you like.
