Blueberry, Oat And Walnut Pancakes

A great breakfast for kids, packed with brain-boosting walnuts, oats, and blueberries.  Its hard to go past Nigella’s banana and buttermilk pancakes for perfection, but as buttermilk is not often to hand, I came up with this.  Besides I wanted something powerfully healthy for kids, as well as being delicious.  As this uses self raising flour, I guess its strictly speaking more of a pikelet, but I’m sticking with pancake.  The photo is the breakfast I made on my son’s 4th birthday.

This makes either 2 large or four small pancakes.

1/3 cup oats

1/3 cup self raising flour

1/4 cup walnuts, ground in a mortar and pestle

1/3 cup milk

1/3 cup frozen blueberries (use fresh if they are in season)

1 small egg

A few drops of vanilla extract (not essence – its fake)

Butter

Combine the flour, oats and walnuts in a bowl.  Lightly beat the egg to combine, and mix with the milk, honey and vanilla.  Stir into the flour mixture until combined.  Gently stir in the blueberries.

Heat a non stick frypan and add a teaspoon of butter.  When its foaming, pour in the pancake mixture. You can make one large one for sharing, or a few smaller ones.

Cook over a low-medium heat for about 3 minutes each side, until golden brown.  They will burn quickly, so don’t leave the stove while you are cooking these. Add a little more butter when you flip over.

I like to serve this with vanilla yoghurt and a drizzle of honey.
