There isn’t anything like classic, sweet and thin pancakes. And pancakes with oat milk – that is really something. Crispy on the edges, spongy, sweet from the oats and ready to fill with delicious things. In Denmark we are pretty crazy about the combination of jam and sugar or lemon juice and sugar inside. But there (almost) aren’t anything you can’t fill these pancakes with.

Recipe for pancakes with oat milk

We have used our oat drink in these pancakes. This means that they are lactose free but at the same time that they get a mild and delicious flavor from the oats. We like to spice it up with some lemon zest or grounded cardamom, but you can do whatever you like.

These pancakes are extremely easy to make. You just have to whip the ingredients together and then fry them one at a time on a pan. Even though the last bit is the most time consuming, we think really like that part. Especially with a good cup of coffee on the side.

These pancakes are not only lactose free, they can also be made as vegan pancakes. You can just choose to most the eggs. Eggs will often make the dough stick a bit more together but it is possible to do without. If you are not using eggs, the pancakes just need to be cooked on a bit lower heat, with a good amount of (plant)butter and let it sit, before you flip it. Besides that, they will be like you know and love them. So if you are looking for vegan pancakes, you can use this recipe as well.
