Oaty Pancakes


When I have no idea what to make for a meal - these are my lifesavers.  They are quick, the kids love them, and I calm my conscience with the fact that they are rather nutritious (thanks to the rolled oats)!

Usually made like pancakes in a frying pan, you can also use your waffle maker too.  Make them as big or small as you like - great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, whenever!

For 4 servings 
¾ cup rolled oats
¾ cup milk
1 egg
½ tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
½ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Put the folled oats in a bowl.  Add the milk and egg and beat with a fork to mix.  Leave this mixture to soak while you get all the other ingredients.  Add the salt, sugar, sifted flour and baking powder and the melted butter and stir only until the ingredients are dampened and not until smooth.

Heat a frying pan (or waffle iron) until a drop of water runs around its surface.  Butter surface lightly with a little butter on soft paper, toprevent the pancakes sticking.  Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the hot surface and when bubbles appear then break on the surface, turn and cook the other side.

Serve drizzled with golden syrup, or with fruit, or with jam.

  17. I love pancakes/waffles with oats in them. They seem heartier and healthier even with the 1/2 cup of syrup my kids usually end up pouring on top.
