Superhero food: healthy pancakes
You can add blueberries to this pancake batter, or have a selection of fruit for the kiddos to put on top, such as stewed apple, banana and strawberries. Unsweetened yoghurt with a dollop of honey is also a yummy option.
- ¾ cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1½ cups buttermilk or milk (cow milk, or breastmilk or formula for little ones)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
Preheat oven to 75°C.
1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until nearly smooth.
2. Place a small amount of oil or butter in a pan on medium to high heat, and pour the batter in to just cover the bottom of the pan.
3. Brown both sides by cooking for 2–3 minutes per side.
4. Put cooked pancakes in a heatproof dish and store in the oven whilst you keep cooking.
