Brekky Porridge Pancakes

Today is National Pancake Day... better known as Shrove Tuesday which is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter where traditionally it was known as a time for fasting. I could not agree more that pancakes are certainly a breakfast feast food I would want to be eating before fasting for 40 days. 

So today I decided to turn my brekky oats into a blender brekky oat pancake recipe and long behold it worked perfectly!

servings: 12 medium pancakes   // prep time: 2 minutes


Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk 
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1 medium banana 
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • sprinkle of salt

OPTIONAL - 

  • Can use any nut milk or organic dairy milk

 

Method:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender I use my nutri bullet and blend until you reach a smoothie consistency. 
  2. Let mixture sit whilst heating up fry pan on a medium heat.
  3. Once fry pan is warm add butter,* once melted, spread across fry pan and start pouring batter into circles.
  4. Cook for 2 minutes on one side, the batter will bubble and flip to cook on the other side for 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Top with honey or pure maple syrup, fresh fruit, coconut yoghurt or Greek yoghurt whatever you desire really!
  6. Great as lunch box snacks with some nut butter and will keep in the fridge for a week or the freezer for a month or two. 

 

Note: If the batter isn't combining well for you add a little more coconut milk or honey as the size of the banana and eggs can impact this slightly. 

Instead of butter* you can use coconut oil or macadamia oil or ghee.
