Savoury green easy pea-sy oat pancakes
A super nutritious green pancake recipe made from a few staple ingredients. Makes about 10 mini pancakes
- 1/2 cup oats or oat bran
- 1 large free range egg
- 1 cup frozen green peas no need to thaw
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
- handful of spinach this is mostly just for color, the pancakes work perfectly without it
Put all the ingredients in a powerful blender (e.g. Nutribullet) and blend until completely smooth.
Heat a non-stick pan on medium, spray with non-stick spray, then fry the pancakes. Use about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. You can make these into 'crumpets' (small thicker pancakes) or make them bigger and flatter if you want to roll them up. I find that small pancakes are easier to manage.
Flip the pancakes over when bubbles start to form on the surface, cook for another 10 seconds, then repeat with the rest of the batter.
Top or fill with your favourite fillers! Cottage cheese, avo, hummus...
