It’s Pancake Day for kids on 17 February this year. We know how much everybody loves a pancake – we only fight over what deliciousness should go on top. Trying to get the kids to eat healthily on this day can be tricky, but give this healthy pancake recipe a go, and see if they can taste the difference.

To make this pancake recipe for kids, you will need…

• 150g of all-purpose flour
• 45g of Quaker oats
• 2 teaspoons of baking powder
• ¼ teaspoon of salt (optional)
• 300ml of fat free milk
• 1 egg, lightly beaten
• 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
• Optional fillings such as frozen fruit, a mashed banana, finely chopped apple, nuts, and healthy spices such as cinnamon

This pancake recipe comes from Quaker Oats and you can find it here:


How to make healthy pancakes in 6 easy steps…

1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder and salt, and mix well.
2. In a separate smaller bowl, combine milk, egg and oil and blend well.
3. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened (do not overmix). Add one of the optional fillings if desired.
4. Heat a frying pan on a medium-high heat and lightly grease.
5. Pour ¼ cup of batter into the pan for each pancake. Flip each pancake when the top is covered with bubbles and the edges look cooked (you only need to turn once).
6. Then serve up this healthy treat while it’s still hot and enjoy.
