Banana Oat Hotcakes (courtesy of Coles magazine)

Here’s another delicious recipe from my friend Katy.  She’s been eating these with her daughter Elley.  They sound delicious.  I think I’ll have to go and try some …

Makes 12 (Serves 4)

1.5 cups SR flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup quick cook oats
1 tbsp sugar
2 eggs
1.25 cups milk
60g melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 small bananas mashed

1. Sift flour and baking powder into large bowl. Stir in oats and sugar and make a well in the centre.
2. Whisk eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla essence in a jug and pour into dry ingredients.  Add mashed banana.  Mix well.
3. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat (not too hot because the inside won’t cook). Grease the pan slightly.  Pour 1/4 cupfuls of mixture into the pan, not too close together as they expand.  Cook for about 3 mins until golden brown and a few bubbles appear on the surface (like cooking thick pikelets).  Flip over and cook a further 2 mins.

Serve warm with yoghurt and honey or maple syrup.  Yummo!
