SIMPLY DELICIOUS OATMEAL & POPPY SEED PANCAKES

DIFFICULTY: EASY PREP TIME: 5 MIN COOKING TIME:10 MIN

Perfect breakfast~ Perfect day

This delicious pancake recipe will roughly take 15 minutes to prep.

This is one of the healthiest breakfast that you will ever have. I love using oatmeal as a main ingredient because of its health attributes and how it completely eradicates those cravings. Oatmeal is very filling, I only had 2 pancakes and was all good for the rest of the day. If you are looking for satiating meals that are delicious and packed with nutrients, then you are at the right place.

I also added some poppy seeds for some crunch to the pancakes. Some benefits of adding poppy seeds to your diet according to the Healthline are as follows:

  • Poppy seeds contain pain relieving components.
  • Poppy seeds boost heart and skin health
  • Poppy seeds aid digestion and enhance fertility.

Let’s jump into the recipe then!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup oat-flour (you can make your own oat-flour by blending your oats in a blender/food processor)
  • 2/3 cup cake wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

  3. Pour the whisked egg mixture into the flour and use a spatula to mix the ingredients until fully combined.
  4. Use a large spoon to scoop out the pancake mix into a non-stick pan. Fry the pancakes on medium heat using butter. Enjoy!

Women around the globe are worth to be celebrated. And how do we do that? We create delicious recipes for them to enjoy:)

  • 1 tin black pitted cherry

Instructions:

  1. Soak the pitted dates and raisins in hot water for 5 minutes. Drain off the excess water.
  2. Take 100 grams of birchies muesli and use a food processor to pulverize them until you have fine flour. Set the flour aside in a bowl.
  3. In a food processor, pulse the soaked dates and raisins until they are smooth.
  4. Add the pitted dates, salt and 150 grams of birchies muesli to the muesli flour. Mix together until dough is formed.
