Sugar-free oaty cinnamon pancakes
I never really enjoyed porridge until I moved to Ireland; now I love it for breakfast with fruit and yoghurt.
The Irish soil and climate produce highly nutritious, good quality oats.
The grains fluff up really well and have a lovely texture, not boarding-school gloop!
This is a great recipe to enjoy even more of this supergrain and is very family friendly.
The cinnamon gives it a natural sweetness and there is no need to add any sugar.
Make up the batter and keep it in the fridge for weekend brekkie, just add a little more milk if it gets too thick.
Serve with plenty of fresh seasonal fruit and yoghurt. Delish!
