Oat Pancakes recipe

oat pancakes recipe + camping tipsThese are such a treat for breakfast and really keep us going on a long busy day! I initially came across the recipe on an Australian blog somewhere in the realms of the world wide web whilst searching for some more exciting breakfast ideas, though unfortunately I can't remember who it was and I can't seem to find my way back to the original website. Anyhow, kudos to the author as they really are delicious and ever-so-slightly healthy with their wholesome oat content, provided you top them with something low in sugar anyhow! (if anyone can tell me who did it please do so I can give proper credit)


Oats contain the nutrient Beta-gluten which helps to slowly release carbohydrates into the bloodstream keeping you feeling full. This helps to prevent the spike in insulin levels associated with other sources of carbohydrate, which can cause the body to turn the excess sugar at the time into unwanted fat. Oats also contain the mineral Magnesium which is equally important in energy production and endurance.


If you want to make this recipe even healthier you could switch the refined sugar for something natural like Xylitol instead, and reduce the frying oil by using a refillable sprayer - they're really effective!



Camping Cheat! Put the dry ingredients for the recipe into a zip-lock bag or small  reusable tub, write on any further instructions, then just add the water/milk and the egg (unless you have dried egg to include with the dry mix) when you’re ready to cook.


Ingredients:    (makes approx. 6 small pancakes)

3/4 cup milk (or 2 tbsp. dried milk + 3/4 cup water)

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup plain flour

2 tbsp. sugar

2 tsp baking powder

a pinch of salt

1 egg / 12.5g dried egg + 2 tbsp. water

+ optional topping: maple syrup



1. Add the egg and milk to the dry ingredients and mix well to make a thick batter. Allow to stand for a few minutes to allow the oats to take on some of the moisture.

2. Lightly oil a frying pan and bring it up to a medium heat. Pour a small amount of batter into the pan and tilt the pan to help it spread out into a round shape approx. 4-5 inches wide.

3. Fry for 1-2 minutes until bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the pancake and the sides have set a little. Carefully flip over with a spatula and fry the other side for a further minute. Take care not to let them burn!

4. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the others, add your choice of topping and enjoy!
