Healthy Choc Oat Pancakes

these delicious pancakes are filling and totally feel as though your eating dessert for breakfast! My kids love these and unlike regular sugary pancakes where they ask for more and more. They are full after 2 or 3 mini Pikelets  sized ones!



what you will need:

Foodprocessor , 2 bowls, frying pan

I blend my own oats – but you could buy quick oats. This is why I used the foodprocessor. It makes the oats more floury, really fine. Where as quick oast from a packet are course and not so fine.

Ingredients:

3eggs

1 1/2 cup milk

1 1/2 cup oats (blended in foodprocessor)

4 tablespoons cacao

Small amount of Butter for frying pan



Method:

In a separate bowl place your egg whites and in the opposite add your yolks. In your bowl of yolks add the oats,milk,and cacao. Mix well!

Whisk your egg whites in the other bowl until stiff.

Slowly fold your egg whites into the bowl of oat batter.

Heat your frying pan, and grease your pan with a nob of butter. 



Place a small amount into frying pan. Waiting for little bubbles to appear on the surface. When you have roughly a dozen bubbles on the surface, flip your pancake. Cook the other side for approx 1min .

Now you should have a pancake stack





You can top these with what ever you like.

But above I have topped mine with whipped cream, chopped fresh strawberries, dark chocolate drops, toasted hazel nuts and some maple syrup.

Bon appetit

This is how simple the cooking is in our house! Mix together your own recipe in 10 minutes with what you have in the pantry!! The recipe is very versatile, any plain cake batter you like and add some 5 spice, ground cloves and cinnamon. Poor into a lasagne dish or if you have a long shallow cake tin (something you would cook brownies in) Peel some nectarines and slice them, press them into the batter! Crumble comes after.

But here is my exact recipe, for those who don’t feel confident with making your own batter and crumble.

1 1/2 cup brown sugar
250g butter
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
(Whip these ingredients)
Add
2 cups plain flour
2 cups SR. flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp mixed spice
(Mix all together)
Add
1 cup of lemonade
(Yes I insist lemonade)

Poor into your baking dish.

Peel 8-10 nectarines (depending on size) slice them up. Press them in to your batter – you will get your fingers slightly sticky from the batter.

Cook on 180degree fan forced oven for approx 50minutes.

Now to make your crumble:
1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of dedicated coconut
40g soft butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
Mix together well.

When cake is cooked, but still slightly soft on top place the crumble over the top. Bake for a further 10minutes.
