The Santa Pancake
A fun and delicious Christmas breakfast recipe.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats uncooked
- 3 eggs
- 1 banana
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup blueberries – fresh or frozen optional
- 9 large strawberries halved
- Plain Greek yoghurt
- 2 blueberries
- 1 raspberry
- Cacao nibs
- Peanut butter
Mix the oats in a blender or food processor for 15 seconds, or until it resembles fine flour.
Add the eggs, banana and baking powder, and blend.
Pour the mixture into a large bowl, add the blueberries and if possible, leave to sit for 3-4 minutes. This allows the mixture to thicken slightly and I find they turn out much better.
Heat a lightly oiled saucepan and add a scoop of mixture, enough to form a large pancake and a light layer of batter. Fry on each side for around 1 minute or until golden brown.
Start by spreading a light layer of peanut butter across the top and bottom third of your pancake, under where the toppings will sit. Then, spread a layer of yoghurt on top, add the strawberries and finish off with the eyes, nose and mouth. Et voila!
