I promise these are just as good, if not better than your traditional pancake recipe. Our girls love them and I love watching them eat them knowing how healthy they really are. As a treat I love to drizzle them with organic maple syrup, but organic honey would be yummy too and if you’d rather not indulge quite so much then fruit and yoghurt would also be great. They would also make a great lunchbox snack if you make them into pikelet size – (you may have missed my post on healthy snacks for children …). This is my favourite Saturday morning post-workout brecky!!!
This recipe comes from the people at Bodyism (www.bodyism.com) – James Duigan is a great mentor for clean eating. (I have added the vanilla)
Healthy Oat Pancakes
(serves 2-4 but for our family of 2 adults and 3 children I would make 1 1/2 times this recipe)
You will need:
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
How to make them:
Whiz the cottage cheese, oats, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla in a food processor until well blended.
Heat some coconut oil (or olive oil, or organic butter) in a pan and ladle a spoonful of mixture. Cook like you would a normal pancake (just be careful when flipping and make sure they don’t burn).
Top with fresh fruit (I love strawberries, blueberries and banana) and a drizzle of maple syrup (make sure it’s the real deal and not the awful artificial stuff) or some honey if desired. You could also spoon a dollop of yoghurt with the fruit if you like …
