These hefty pancakes will no doubt full you up, and serve as a lovely, fibre-rich vessel for any number of nutritious fruit.

It is a much more "meaty" version of pancakes compared to the usual pancakes, so go ahead and load on large dollops of yoghurt along side fruits like mango, oranges (the tang is wonderful!), or berries like raspberries and blueberries, or just some good ol' jam.

Perfect for breakfast or a midday snack, these pancakes can also be fried in advanced and stored in an airtight container to be eaten within the next 4 days (they may get a little dry after that).

For the pancake batter
  • 1 cup oats
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence (optional)
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp butter to fry
  • Fruit of choice
For the pancake batter
Place the butter, milk, and water in a microwavable bowl and microwave on medium heat until butter has melted (try 30 sec intervals). When the butter looks melted, stir the mixture and add in the oats, stirring again, and let sit for around 10 minutes while you prepare the rest.
Preheat the pan you are going to fry the pancakes in.
If your eggs are small, consider using less flour.
In a larger bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla essence, and baking powder. Stir to combine, then add the oat mixture, stir gently until just mixed (not fully mixed yet), and finally add the eggs and mix again. Try to mix as little as possible, ideally until just combined. I suggest using a rubber spatula and a folding method.
Pour the batter onto a pan with butter over medium heat and cook until the pancake surfaces appear dry and browned. About 1-2 minutes on each side. If you use a large frying pan, this stage goes by very quickly.
Serve the pancakes with a generous dosage of toppings like yoghurt, fruit, berries, jam, or other sweet toppings.
