I love pancakes! Flat, fluffy, big and small, I love them all. I love the fact that you could use the same batter to make crepes, which could be eaten either as a savoury dish or sweet dish. But not pancakes though. Pancakes are strictly reserved for sweet stuff, at least in my world. So anyway! I found this recipe, which had oatmeal and wholemeal, which equals to more fibre = feel full for longer period of time. I’ve tweaked it to this, after comparing several other recipes:


1/4 cup wholemeal flour

1/4 cup self-raising flour

1/2 cup Quaker oats

1 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup buttermilk

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 egg

2 tbsp vegetable oil


1. Prepare buttermilk : 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar + low fat milk to make 3/4 cup.

2. Use a food processor to grind oats finely. Pour into a bowl.

3. Add buttermilk to ground oats, and let it stand for a few minutes.

4. In the meantime, prepare all other ingredients. Sieve flour and baking powder into oats mixture.

5. Add egg, vanilla essence and vegetable oil, and whisk until smooth. 6. Heat a frying pan, and pour about 1/4 cup of batter. Brown both sides and serve hot.

Serving suggestion: Fresh fruits, maple syrup, margarine, chocolate syrup, yoghurt, nuts, WHATSOEVER.

Taste test: My sister said it tasted like Plasticine. Haha. But I actually liked the taste! And it didn’t taste like plasticine to me. Oh well. Back to the drawing board then.
