Low-Calorie Carrot Pancakes

Introduction

50 calorie per pancake ~ a tasty treat without the guilt. 50 calorie per pancake ~ a tasty treat without the guilt.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 Egg
    20g Quaker’s Rolled Porridge Oats
    150ml skimmed milk
    15g plain flour
    1 grated carrot (100g)
    ¼ tsp baking powder
    ¼ tsp vanilla extract
    1/3 cup Splenda
    ½ tsp cinnamon
    A few tablespoons of water are optional – I put in some for a runnier batter.

Directions

The recipe makes 6 medium sized pancakes.

1) Soak the rolled porridge oats for an hour in the milk so that it makes a nice thick mixture.
2) Mix in the flour, baking power and egg. Then add the vanilla, Splenda and the cinnamon – whisk together.
3) Grate some carrot and fold into the mixture. … Now the batter won’t look very useable, runny and lumpy (due to the carrot) all at the same time. So here’s my word of warning!!

Word of warning: This recipe does require some creative thinking. The grated carrot could and probably SHOULD be whizzed with a blender for a better consistency for the batter… The grated carrot I had to scoop out of the batter with a small tablespoon, spread out lightly on the pan, turn the heat right up as I pour some batter over the carrots so that it set into a nice shape, then turn the heat right down to very low immediately – cover sauce pan with a lid and let it cook for 4-5 minutes untouched. If you can perfect this strange method of grated carrot flakes and pouring the batter and juggling the heat on your stove – then you’ll have some awesome pancakes in the end.

4) The pancake should visibly rise a little, after about 4-5 minutes you can flip it, and cook it for a further 2-3 minutes at low heat.
