Hi folks, and happy Friday!

Here’s the recipe for these yummy pancakes, that I mentioned in my last post. Why I was making these in the dead of night, only goodness knows. Anyway, for those of you who have allergies to offending items like wheat and dairy, here’s one for you to try.


Ingredients (makes about 6 pancakes)

1 cup of oats

1/3 cup of soya milk (or rice milk, or almond milk or other dairy substitute)

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 small handful of sugar

a pinch of baking powder

A small amount of vegetable oil for frying


For the topping:

1 apple, sliced

2 – 3 limes, jucied

a generous sprinkle of sugar

maple syrup, served separately



  • Make the topping first by sprinkling some sugar over the apples. Pour over the lime juice (and zest if you like) and then mix. Leave in a bowl to marinade and set aside.
  • Put all the pancake ingredients in a bowl and mix very gently. They should be well combined, but not perfectly smooth. The batter should be thickish rather than runny.
  • Heat a smidgen of oil in a nonstick pan and dollop a spoonful of batter into the pan when hot. It should spread slightly but keep its shape and height – that’s how you know you have the right consistency.
  • Cook till slightly brown on one side and then flip over and remove once the other side is golden brown also.
  • Plate up nicely, dump over the lemony apple topping, add some maple syrup if you like and enjoy!
