  1. Put the oat milk, egg yolks, banana, oats, baking powder and vanilla in a blender and process to as smooth a mixture as you can get. Whisk the eggs whites until they hold stiff peaks. Whisk 1-2 tbsp of the whites into the batter, then fold in the rest.

  2. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat and spray with a whisper of oil, pour about 2 tbsp of batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 mins, until the base sets and bubbles appear all over the top. Flip and cook the other side for a minute. Repeat in batches, making sure the top looks dryish before attempting the flip, or the centre will collapse.

I think 2 tsp of baking powder is too much as I only used 1 tsp and my pancakes had a bit of a bitter taste. Other than that, I added a little butter to make it slightly moist. Thank you for the recipe!

I tried these pancakes this morning, they were very easy and quick to make and even more delicious. I would definitely do them again. They were so nice and very filling. You could have multiple toppings and flavours on top. They are very good.

Love this recipe! We make it on a Saturday morning and cook half, fridge the rest of the batter and make the rest on Sunday (for 2 ppl) We don’t add the vanilla and it tastes just yum! Shared recipe with my sisters for their kids and they love it too!

This recipe is wonderful! There are certain things that I have ruled out ever enjoying again as I can’t eat wheat. Pancakes were one of those things...until this morning! These turned out fluffy and light and even better than pancakes with flour. I also knew that it was almost like having a bowl of porridge and some eggs health-wise. My 5 year old has asked to have these on every weekend morning! I think we might...

Wish I’d done what I’ve done before which is grind the oats into a powder first, and then add everything else. Found I mixed for 5 mins and the oats kept evading the blades as it was too liquidy. Made similar without milk before and I think the texture is easier to make drop style pancakes, found these harder to set and flip. Tasted alright though!

Love american pancakes and been looking to try one of these 'healthier' recipes for a while but the look of them and fancy ingredient lists always put me off. These, however, were delicious and used ingredients I already had in. They took a little more effort to prepare but have to say they were definately worth it, creamy and naturally sweet and excellent served with yogurt and fresh fruit.

Hi, The serving size is 2-3 depending on how hungry you are, the nutrition is based on a serving of 2. I will get the information amended to make this more clear. Lulu

I have made these before, and the mix goes a long way! Has anybody tried freezing them? If so, do they defrost and reheat ok? I found that I had to eat them all rather than throw them away!

Thanks for your question. These are better fresh but you can freeze leftovers. We'd suggest putting them between pieces of baking parchment to stop them sticking. Defrost and reheat in a warm oven or the microwave.
