Oatmeal Pancakes with Grilled Honey and Orange Figs
This no-waste recipe uses leftover oatmeal to make delicious pancakes
Serves 4|Takes 25 minutes
1/2 cup Flahavan’s Oats
1 cup of milk
OR 3 1/2 cups of leftover oatmeal and a splash of milk
1/3 plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 black figs
Knob of butter
Juice and zest of half an orange
1 tbsp honey
Place the Flahavan’s Oats in a small pan over a medium heat with 250ml milk and bring to the boil and reduce the temperature to a low heat and continue cooking for around 10-12 minutes until thick and creamy. Leave the oatmeal overnight covered with some clingfilm.
Whisk the overnight oatmeal together with a splash of milk and the egg until well combined. Alternatively, you can add the splash of milk and egg to any leftover oatmeal you may have.
Sift in the flour and baking powder to the oatmeal and whisk to combine.
Halve the figs and place cut side facing up on a baking tray. Drizzle with the honey and the orange zest and juice. Place under a hot grill and cook for 5-6 minutes or until the figs start to release their juices and collapse.
Melt a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan and cook spoonfuls of the batter in batches until golden brown on each side. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
Serve the pancakes with the grilled figs and Greek yogurt
