So today being a holiday in Rwanda I decided to make something a little diffrent just because it’s a relaxed day.
You know me when I hear a healthy way to make food I’ll go all the way in to try it.
So this time, on Tuesday to be exact, my colleague who loves healthy foods mentioned to me to try making oat pancakes. I was intrigued because first, they are gluten-free(the kind I use) and also they make a satisfying meal to say the least.
I then decided to make when I got free time. Today, seemed about right.
Behold, my version of oatmeal pancakes, as reimagined and recreated the #DeniseTuyiLife way.
3 Ingredients Pancakes 🥞.
You will need:
|Ingredients × equipment|
2 bananas (adds the sweetness you’ll love)
2 eggs (or milk if you like it)
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon (or spice/dried fruit/nuts/seeds you like)
1 small cup of oats (I used quick cooking GF oats that I had in hand)
Olive oil/butter/oil you prefer (I used olive oil)
1 for/egg beater/whisk/mixer
1 bowl for the mixture
Serves one obvi 😁😝
Let me take you through the process of making this oh-so filling new favorite meal with images I took earlier today.
First take two bananas, slice them in small pieces.
Mash the bananas till they are soft enough. Also, it’s not yellow per se just the effect of the camera flash.
Then add some cinnamon to add a little flavor and spice to it.
At this point add in your two eggs and beat the mixture for a minute or so. It helps if you have a beater/mixer.
After you see a froth(bubbles), now for the fun part–add in your oats.
Mix it all together until it’s a thick consistency you like.
When your batter is ready, let it sit for a few minutes until it’s thick enough. This helps especially if you want a thick pancake batch.
Now for another fun part, in a pan set on medium heat, your preferred oil ready, pour your batter in sizes you like and cook till brown.
Keep checking to see if they are brown enough and have cooked on all sides.
Turn until you feel that that’s the right shade of brown you want to serve it with.
Serve and take photos if you may… Ahem!
And another shot if you don’t mind me. Also this part you could drizzle with your favorite drizzle say maple syrup or honey. I preferred none of that since the bananas made it sweet already.
And there you have it! Add in your favorite tea(drink) and voila! Breakfast is served!
Look how thick the pancake looks! Irresistibly yummy that I can promise!
Can you tell I munched them within seconds? Reason being, they were that good!
So there you have it friends, oat pancakes nice, easy and yummy to make. I’m making another batch soon that I can promise! And if you too recreate your own batch after reading this, tag me so that I can give you a shout out.
Thanks to Justine for making me a believer that oats, can indeed make great pancakes 🥞😍
So to all of you, I wish each and all:
Peace. Love. Light. ✨
