oat pancakes with oven roasted nectarines

I don't know about you, but my weekends are always busy. I go to an early cycle class on Saturday and my Sundays usually whizz by so I often miss breakfast entirely during the weekend. My weekday breakfast is a bowl of bircher muesli topped with fruit and yoghurt but I've always been partial to pancakes. I tore this recipe for oat pancakes from the Saturday newspaper quite a few months back just waiting for the right time to make them.

As I always have oats in the house I was intrigued by the thought of oaty pancakes. I couldn't cope with the the prospect of salted caramel sauce for breakfast so I oven roasted some nectarines inspired by this recipe here.

I cut the sugar in the batter by 1 tablespoon and the pancakes were still sweet enough for my tastebuds. The batter is pretty thick so my first pancake could have been used as a door mat. I kept thinning the batter with milk and the remaining pancakes turned out fine.

I topped the pancakes with some of the oven roasted fruit, a dollop of Greek style yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.

I froze some of the pancakes and had the leftovers for breakfast on Sunday morning. I'd finished all the nectarines so I served the pancakes with yoghurt, blueberries and maple syrup. They were just as yummy.

As you can see I licked the plate clean. I'll definitely be making these again.

See you all again on Wednesday.
