Shrove Tuesday - Healthy Oat Pancakes!



Shrove Tuesday is upon us and fast approaching!

Pancakes come in various forms and the toppings can vary also, but if you are looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional pancake, then you are in the right place! This recipe is easy to follow, simple and doesn't take long to prepare and cook either!

Admittedly, these oat pancakes do not taste like the traditional flour filled pancakes you may be familiar with (because they have no flour), but they do taste really good, especially served with fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup. 

Also, these pancakes are so versatile! Everyone has different preferences when it comes to toppings on their pancakes, so instead of blueberries and maple syrup, you can switch them up by adding different toppings like chocolate spread with strawberries or bananas with peanut butter or whichever pancake topping you prefer!


Serves 1:

  • 40g Oats
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 tbsps Fat Free Yoghurt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon 
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 3 tbsps Sweetener
  • Frylight
  • Blueberries (to serve: optional)
  • Maple Syrup (to serve: optional)


1. Blend the oats, eggs, yoghurt, cinnamon, vanilla essence and sweetener together in a blender

2. Heat your frying pan on a medium heat and spray the frying pan with Frylight

3. Pour some of the pancake mix into the frying pan to make a small-sized pancake (this mix makes approximately 4 pancakes), and cook the pancakes one at a time

4. Allow the pancake to cook through before turning gently

5. Repeat for the remaining pancake mix (adding more Frylight if necessary) and then serve with fresh blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup

Although traditional pancakes with lots of flour and sugar taste incredible, these oat pancakes are healthier alternative and taste delicious so you can still enjoy Shrove Tuesday!
