Buttermilk Oatcakes [Pancakes with a healthy twist]

You  all know Overnight Oats – if not, you seriously need to check it out (incredibly easy breakfast!). Well, I didn’t want to talk about how great Overnight Oats are… but now imagine putting porridge into a pan and turn it into pancakes. It tastes so good! And it’s also something like the weekend “treat yourself” version of your favorite healthy brekkie.


You’ll only need some basic ingredients and they’re fast to make:

Buttermilk Oatcakes

4 servings

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and then add the buttermilk and egg. Stir thorougly and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes.

Coat pan with a little bit of oil or cooking spray and heat on medium. Put little portions of batter in the pan and cook them until bubbles dot the surface. Flip and continue cooking until browned.

Serve with maple syrup or fruit sauce.


Let me know how this recipe works for you!

I think they’re a wonderful change from “normal” pancakes 🙂
