Healthy Mango and Oats Pancakes

Being a vegetarian (minus eggs) person, pancakes are again one thing that I can’t have outside ๐Ÿ™ I knew what needs to be done to whip up a quick batch of eggless pancakes, but somehow I never got around it! And then today I was home all day and the weather was really warm and I wanted ice-cream. So the ever-faithful, absolutely healthy and smashing one-ingredient ice-cream came to my rescue! While the ice-cream was freezing – I thought of having pancakes and ice-cream for lunch ๐Ÿ™‚ That is not too bad right – oats, mangoes, bananas and milk!

These mango pancakes have it all – slightly sweet, fluffy and amazingly light! That is the thing about oats – it makes everything slightly lighter than using whole wheat ๐Ÿ™‚ This can be enjoyed by all – kids and adults alike. The best part is no one needs to know it’s healthy, right? ย That will be our little secret ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just drizzled some honey on top of these pancakes for the pictures, you know! They taste awesome even without that.. these are ready to eat straight off the the pan ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients
  1. 100 grams mangoes (I used frozen mangoes)
  2. 3/4 cup oats flour
  3. pinch of salt
  4. 3/4 tsp baking powder
  5. 1/2 cup milk
  6. 1/2 tsp oil per pancake
  7. honey to drizzle on top (optional)
Preparation Time: 5ย minย 
Cooking Time: 10 min
Servings:ย 4 pancakes

Method

  1. In a blender, blend the mangoes and milk to get a smooth puree.
  2. Take the oats flour, salt and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Whisk the ingredients together.
  3. Add the mango puree to the dry ingredients and whisk till there are no lumps. The batter should be slightly thick and not too runny. It should be drop-able with a spoon. If its too thick the pancakes will feel too dense.
  4. To make the pancakes, heat up a non-stick skillet. Spread 1/2 tsp oil on it. Take about 1/4 cup of the batter and pour it on the skillet. Gently spread it till the pancake is about 1/4th inch thick.
  5. Let the underside cook on low heat for about a minute. Place a lid on top – it helps cook the pancake better I feel. Once the top looks lightly cooked and is not runny, flip the pancake over.
  6. Let the other side cook for another minute – then take out the pancake out on a plate.
  7. Serve warm with some honey drizzled on top and some cut fruit or almonds or cashews. ย Or add a scoop ofย the healthy ice cream for a nice weekend treat!
  8. Sprinkle some water on the skillet to reduce the heat and then repeat steps above for the rest of the batter!
