This is a super quick recipe that makes SUPER delicious pancakes. They're especially great on a rainy morning, or when you just want something comforting and sweet.
Serves one hungry person, or two nibblers
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (or other flour of your choosing)
- 1 cup nondairy milk (I like coconut)
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons coconut or rapeseed oil
- 1 tablespoon date syrup (and extra for topping)
- 1 apple, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (these are optional - I sometimes omit them to no massive detriment)
- A pinch of cinnamon
- A pinch of nutmeg
- A pinch of salt
1./ Add all the dry ingredients (oats, flour, salt, spices, baking soda and powder) to a mixing bowl and stir them up well. Preheat your oven too, to about 200 degrees celsius (392 farenheit).
2./ In a separate bowl, mix the milk, vinegar, syrup and oil.
3./Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add the fruit in at this stage too. You want the batter to be very thick, but runny enough to spoon, so add a little more milk if necessary (if you literally can't spoon it).
4./ Add a little extra oil to a frying pan and put it over a medium-high heat. When the oil starts to sing, spoon in little rounds of pancake batter. I find these work best as small-ish pancakes, so keep that in mind. Cook 2-3 at a time, flipping them over once the first side is browned. When a batch is browned (and almost cooked through), put them on a plate in the oven until the rest are also ready. The heat here will finish the insides.
5./ When all the batter is used, pile the pancakes up high and douse them in date syrup. I like walnuts on top of mine too.
6./ Devour your glorious fried creations!
