Easy to make pancakes

I love cooking with oats. High in protein, affordable and so versatile, oats also give whatever you’re making a slightly sweet and nutlike taste.

These oat pancakes are very easy to make. Just combine the ingredients in a bowl and let sit for 15 minutes. Blend until smooth in a food processor and you’re done. One thing to make sure of is that the consisitancy is right. You want a thick but pourable batter.

The next step is to preheat your skillet. When frying them, it’s important to cook them over low medium heat. If the heat is too high, your pancakes will stick, even to a non stick pan.

After pouring the batter, spread it out gently with your spatula to create a thin pancake. As it cooks, flatten pancakes slightly with the spatula to insure the cook all the way through. Swirl the pan often to insure they don’t stick. Pancakes should be well browned and easy to swirl around the pan.

Once done, remove from the pan and place pancake on a baking rack for a moment to keep them from getting soggy. Serve while still warm with maple syrup and fresh fruit.

Healthy and delicious, banana oat pancakes are a must try. They make a great and easy Valentines Day breakfast or as the centerpiece of any weekend brunch. They even taste great as a filling and satisfying dinner. Enjoy!
