6 pancakes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the egg with milk, sugar, youghurt, olive oil and water.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients (flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, flax seed, salt) in a bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add the dry mixture into the liquid and beat until smooth. Let stand for about 15 minute The batter must have a consistency of thin porridge. Add a table spoon of water if too thick.
  4. Brush a small non-stick pan with the greasing oil or spray with cooking spray. Spoon pancakes with a small ladle and cook on medium-high. Turn over when surface gets bubbly. No need to respray if your pan is truly non-stick.
  5. This makes 6 pancakes that are fluffy, tender and yummy. 117 cal/pancake. Serve with fruits, low-cal youghurt or eggs. I love dipping them into a soft-boiled egg.
  6. Optional: if you intend to serve them with fruits like apples or bananas, add a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg into the batter. The heat will enhance the spices.
