Oat, Blueberry & Chia Seed Pancakes

October 09

The addition of the blueberries to the pan once the pancakes have cooked creates a delicious juicy sauce which coats the pancakes, I like to add some honey here to sweeten it a little and helps to thicken any juices which come out of the berries. Make sure and fold the egg whites into the rest of the ingredients gently in order to keep as much air in the mixture as possible which will give light pancakes.

Method
  1. Blitz the oats in a food processor until fine, tip into a large bowl along with the milk, egg yolks, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and chia seeds.
  2. In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites until they hold firm peaks. Fold gently into the batter until combined.
  3. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan, add pour in a small ladleful of the batter to give you three pancakes. Set aside 250g blueberries for the end, plop in a few blueberries on the uncooked side and press them in gently, allow to cook for 3-4 minutes or until little bubbles start to appear and the edges become a little dry and then turn over to cook for about a minute until golden brown. Set these aside and repeat with the remaining tablespoon of oil and batter to give you 6 pancakes in total.
  4. Next add the first three pancakes back to the pan along with the remaining blueberries and orange juice, toss the blueberries in the pan, the juices will start to form and then coat the pancakes in the sticky blueberry juice. Drizzle in the honey and toss through.
  5. When all the pancakes are coated and it’s all glossy serve onto plate, fold some yoghurt through the sauce.
