"Pancakes are without a doubt an all-time favorite and, at least for me, are an absolute must-have breakfast for the weekend. The little fluffy cakes can be prepared quickly with just a handful of ingredients, but this version has a special twist with toasted oats in the batter. Taking a few minutes to toast the oatmeal in a pan and then process it into a coarse flour, adds a nuttier flavor to the pancakes and a heartier texture. If you like, you can add other spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom to the batter in addition to the vanilla. Here, we serve the pancakes with a simple homemade strawberry sauce, but feel free to serve them with your favorite toppings like bananas, nuts, other fresh berries, or lots of maple syrup."

  • Step 2/5

    Toast the oatmeal in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat for approx. 4 min., tossing several times, until they smell very fragrant and might be slightly browned. Remove and set aside, wiping out the pan if necessary. Reduce heat and melt butter in the same pan, letting it brown a bit, then transfer to a small bowl and let cool; do not wipe out the frying pan. Grind toasted oats in a food processor to make a flour that is still slightly coarse.

  • Step 5/5

    In the previously used nonstick frying pan, heat a little vegetable oil over medium heat. Add some batter to create pancakes approx. 10 cm/4 in. in diameter. Flip pancakes after approx. 2 – 3 min., or when they are golden brown on the bottom and bubbles appear all around the edges of the pancakes. Cook for approx. 2 min. on the other side, then remove and repeat until the batter is used up. Serve with the homemade strawberry sauce and the reserved fresh strawberries. Enjoy!
