I love making pancakes and it is one food that you can easily make for breakfast. It is always convenient as a lunchbox meal for my daughter who loves it, so I think up ways to vary my pancakes so that it doesn’t become boring.
This sugar-free oats pancake as the name implies does not have artificial sugar as an ingredient but still tastes very sweet, courtesy of raisins.
Raisins are sweet because they contain natural sugars and are therefore a good energy booster for kids. For non-raisin’ lovers, especially if you don’t like chewing on it, you will definitely not know that it is there.
The addition of oats instead of using only white flour makes this pancake a lot more healthier. Oats and raisins as well contains fibre, which is essential in maintaining a good metabolism and avoiding constipation.
Sugar-free Oats Pancake is a healthy option that can be enjoyed by the whole family too.
- ½ cup flour
- ½ cup porridge oats (eg Quaker Oats)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ cup raisins
- ¾ cup milk – if using powdered milk, first mix with water before measuring. Also dilute evaporated milk with some water before measuring
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp vanilla essence flavour
- 1 tsp grated nutmeg
- Oil for frying
- Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend. You can blend to a smooth consistency or blend coarsely so that you can have some of the raisins and oats still roughly visible.
- Transfer to a bowl and stir. You can add more milk if you want a lighter batter.
- Put a pan on medium heat and add a little oil just to grease the pan. Cook pancakes in batches. Once bubbles appear on the top, flip the other side to cook .
- Serve warm or snuck into the lunchbox.
