If you don't have all the ingredients this shrove Tuesday, it doesn't matter. Bookmark the recipe and make it another day for brunch.
Trust me - it's wonderful.
It's not my own recipe. I tweaked one by the excellent Kelli Jennings of Apex Nutrition - you can find the original here.
We like these after open water swimming in the loch, because they're a fast, filling, warming treat, with whole food carbs and protein.
The tools you'll need are a frying pan (or ideally a flat skillet) and either a hand-blender or (if you don't mind the washing up) a full-on machine blender. Actually, you could probably do this in a Nutri-bullet. Hmm - I'll have to try that.
For two hungry people, put into the blender and blitz:
* 80g of oats
* 160g of Greek yoghurt
* 3 tablespoons of Chia seeds (these thicken the mix)
* 2 large free-range eggs
* 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

|Don't make them too big because...|
|You want them flippable|
|Second batch always cooks faster and tastes better|
