Do you need any special ingredients to make Oat Pancakes?

These Oat Pancakes are really simple to make and the ingredients are things that you probably have in the cupboard and fridge already.

For the oats, we suggest using Ready Brek as it’s already finely milled which gives the pancakes a nicer texture. If you only have normal porridge oats then you can just blitz these in a food processor for the same effect.

We also find they are much easier to make in a non-stick frying pan!

How do I know when these Oat Pancakes are cooked?

You should cook your Oat Pancakes until they are golden on both sides and cooked through.  When one side of the pancake is cooked, you’ll be able to gently flip it over without it falling apart.

If they are colouring before they are set enough to flip, then reduce the heat. This should take approx 10 minutes on the hob over a medium-low heat.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

How long can you keep these Oat Pancakes in the fridge?

If you allow any leftovers to cool, make sure to refrigerate in a container with a lid and chill. You can keep leftovers of Oat Pancakes in the fridge for approximately 3 days or so.

Can I freeze these Oat Pancakes?

We wouldn’t recommend freezing these Oat Pancakes.

Hi, I’m going to try making these at some point I want to blend the oats but only have a hand blender. Would it would the same if i blended after mixing all the ingredients together? Thanks.

I’ve tried making these using the same method but with 80g ready brek instead of oats. They were really gooey in the middle still. I tried to make them thinner and cook for longer but no joy. It tastes nice but not the same as usual pancakes. Does anyone else have the same problem?
