Oat flakes pancake with apples

Do you know that Oat flakes are one of the most versatile and healthiest food out there? And also so cheap and easy to find? Do you have idea of all the benefits it provides for our health and good digestion? Yep? Well then Let's have a great breakfast, supper, or just an afternoon tea snack with this deliiiiicious, easy, fast and healthy pancake recipe!

I'm almost sure after you learn to make it, you will want to make your pancakes all the time like this! It is filling, it is healthy and the taste of the oat flakes.. yuuumm! And even more with the apples... though you can change the fruit, or just without. Maybe a bit of honey, or a slice of fresh white cheese (cottage cheese maybe?). Hmmm I'm getting hungry!

(for 6-8 portions)

  • 150 gr / 1 cup aprox. Flour
  • 120 gr / 1 cup aprox. Oat Flakes
  • 4 - 6 Tbsp Sugar (better if brown)
  • 2 Tbsp Margarine or Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 400 ml / 2 cups Milk

Wash, remove core and peel your apples. Cut them in halves and slice them thin.

Pre-heat a pancake or a frying pan with 1 tsp margarine. In a big bowl, add all the ingredients and mix everything with a whisk (manual or electric, makes no difference), until everything is well mixed. Add some cinnamon if you wish. I like them with an extra taste when I make them with apples, so I added a hint of cinnamon, cloves and ginger.

Once the pan is hot, with a serving soup spoon, add one portion and distribute it along the surface of the pan, while is still liquid. Let it cook for a minute or 2, and turn around.

Add the apple slices until you have half of your pancake covered. Let cook until the surface of the pancake has mini holes, or it begins to look dry. Fold the pancake on its half, covering the apple slices. Let half a minute and then turn around (this helps to close it better). Let it around one minute more.

Serve and enjoy while its warm. You can accompany with some thin lines of honey. If its summer, I strongly recommend it with a ball of vanilla ice cream. Also you can add whisked cream, or chantilly. Or just alone... any way you eat them you will love them!
