Ingredients (makes 4 or 5):

  • 100g oats
  • 3 eggs
  • 300ml skimmed milk
  • pinch of salt


  1. Blitz the oats in a food processor.
  2. Whisk the eggs and milk together and pour into the oats; add the salt.
  3. Whisk all the mixture together.
  4. Spray Frylight into a frying pan and pour in some of the mixture to cover the bottom of the pan.
  5. Turn once while cooking (it can take a while to get the hang of this).
  6. It’s best to stir the mixture before pouring out for another pancake.

Served here with caramelised cherries and pineapple, and low fat natural yogurt with a squirt of sugar-free syrup.

(I used frozen cherries and cooked them in a splash of lemon juice for a few minutes before adding the pineapple chunks and a squirt of sugar-free syrup.  Simmer for a further 5 mins.)

    1. Hi Susan, if you squirt lemon juice on them and sprinkle over a 0sp sweetener, they’ll be sweet. You could add sweetener to the mixture too if you wanted. Helen xxxx

  1. I’ve had to comment as I’ve just made these, and they tasted just like the real thing! Amazing! Can’t wait to try your other recipes!

    1. Hi Margaret, you could try but I couldn’t guarantee that it would work the same. Please let me know how you get on if you decide to give it a go. Good luck! Helen xxxxx

        1. Hi Margaret, glad they turned out OK – I might give that a go myself:-) I’d like to know what the difference is please. Hope you have a lovely weekend:-) Helen xxx

  2. Tried pancakes this morning loved them with jam and yogurt but am I suppose to make that amount for one person,. I cut the ingredients down but still too much had to leave some I was full.

    1. Hi Margaret, the mixture should make 4 or 5 pancakes which could serve between 2 and 4 people. You can make them and re-heat them the next day if there are too many. Glad you enjoyed them! Helen xxxxx

    1. Hi Amanda, I blitz the oats for about 2 minutes in the food processor. They become quite small pieces, but don’t blitz well enough to make a flour. I hope this helps, Helen xxx

  3. Just made these for my breakfast as am trying a no count day properly for the first time. They are amazing! I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract as I have a very sweet tooth and they are honestly better than any pancakes I ever made on pancake day. I will be having some for dessert later too.

    1. Hi Nikki, I’m really glad you enjoyed the pancakes and hope you had fun trying to make them too. What a great start to your No Count day – I hope you enjoy your other meals just as much:-) Helen xxx
