However, there are so many ways to prepare them. In this recipe, we will be looking at replacing regular flour with oats. preparation time is the same as making normal pancakes. Oats make for a much healthier choice and are amazing especially for those living with diabetes.
2 cups of your favorite brand of rolled oats, salt, a tin of evaporated milk, warm water, honey, baking powder, vanilla flavor, olive oil, 2 uncooked eggs
- most oat brands come in a rolled state, so it is vital you blend into powder before you can use it. once you have blended it, you can choose to sieve it to get a smoother texture or use it as is.
- once blended, place in a mixing bowl, add a pinch of salt, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, mix together and set aside
- in a separate bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk, 2 eggs, 4 tablespoons of honey, and a teaspoon of the vanilla extract
- pour this mixture into the flour, and mix while alternately adding the warm water until the right consistency is attained. Set this batter aside for no more than 5 minutes
- heat up a lightly oiled frying pan and start cooking the batter one spoonful at a time. Twist the pan to spread the batter so it cooks evenly. (olive oil might be too expensive for some, so butter or any vegetable oil will do just fine)
- wait until it is starts bubbling and thinly browns at the edges before flipping to cook the other side. Once it is cooked, remove, place on a dish covered with a paper napkin to soak up the excess oil. Then continue until the batter is finished.
- serve with maple syrup and slices of banana. It can be brilliantly accompanied by either coffee, juice or any other beverage of your choice
