It was time for a new pancake recipe. I love pancakes and using a pancake maker, makes it super easy. For this recipe, I didn’t use refined sugar. Instead, I used dates and it worked perfectly.
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 150 g wholemeal spelt flour
- 50 g grounded oats
- 6 dates (The amount depends on the type of date.)
- 300 ml oat milk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 lemon
- 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
- Coconut yoghurt
- Date syrup
Soak the dates in hot water for 20 minutes. Then, blend the dates. I realized that the dates need less time for soaking when I used hot water.
Wash and dry lemon. Squeeze lemon and zest the lemon. You need 2 tablespoon lemon juice.
Mix flour, oats, baking powder, dates, lemon zest and oat milk in a big bowl and mix until smooth.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add oil. Reduce the heat to medium. Pour a heaping spoonful of pancake batter onto the hot pan and cook until bubbles form. Then flip and cook the other side. Or you use a pancake maker. Serve the pancakes with coconut yoghurt, date syrup and blueberries.
