Healthy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pancakes

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 35 mins
Servings 8 pancakes


  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup natural yoghurt
  • 1 cup skimmed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 50 g /1.7oz good quality dark chocolate chopped into chunks (alternatively, use the same amount of good quality dark chocolate chips)


  • Place the oats into a blender and blend for about 1 minute, until they turn into a fine powder - this is your oat flour!
  • Stir together the oat flour, baking powder and ground cinnamon.
  • Separately, mix together the natural yoghurt, skimmed milk, egg, vanilla extract and honey.
  • Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry until the mixture just comes together - don't over-mix.
  • Fold in the chocolate chunks or chips.
  • Grease a small frying pan with the oil or butter of your choice and scoop ¼ cup of the mixture into the pan.
  • Cook for around 3 minutes on a medium heat until lots of bubbles have popped on the surface of the pancake then flip over and cook for a further 1 minute.
  • Keep the pancakes warm in a 100F preheated oven whilst you repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter. If the batter gets too thick in between making the pancakes, stir in more milk.
