Sunday morning is the perfect time to make a big family breakfast. I have been so obsessed with oatmeal lately I haven’t felt like making anything else. So, today I decided to make the next best thing, oatmeal pancakes or what I like to call, Oatcakes.
What you’ll need:
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 tsp salt (I used Himalayan pink sea salt)
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp stevia or 1/4 cup brown sugar if you like your cakes on the sweeter side
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (I used Dark Chocolate Dreams)
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 egg whites
- coconut oil for the pan
Garnish: (optional) 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp chocolate chips, cinnamon & 1 tbsp peanut butter
First, put two cups of oats in a food processor and process into flour. Then add salt, baking powder, sugar or stevia, and the remaining oats and mix.
Put the banana and peanut butter in a small dish and microwave for about a minute, or until it is close to a liquid. Pour the banana peanut butter mix into your dry mix. Whisk together eggs, vanilla extract and almond milk and then add to the dry mix as well. Mix all ingredients well.
Heat a skillet over medium to medium low heat. Drop a tsp or so of coconut oil in the pan to keep cakes from sticking. Repeat as necessary during the cooking process. Drop 1/4 cup of batter into pan and cook for about 4 minutes each side.
This made about 10-12 cakes for me, but I think some of my cakes were on the large side. I topped mine with a little more dark chocolate dreams, cinnamon, 1/2 banana and a tbsp of chocolate chips.
