- Cook pancakes- Grease a nonstick pan and heat over medium heat. Cook ¼ cup portions of pancakes for roughly 2 minutes on the first side and 1 minute on the second.
- Enjoy! Top your pancakes with extra yogurt, fresh fruit and maple syrup.
- Quick oats should also work fine; do not use steel cut oats
- Try using refined coconut oil; you may swap for olive oil or butter
- Though these pancakes are best served fresh, you can cook them ahead and store:
- fridge- in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days
- freezer- separate pancakes with squares of wax or parchment paper; store in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 1 month.
