Sweet potato and Oatmeal pancakes – Gluten and lactose free!


These were delightfully tasty, and quick and easy to make.  Please note, I do not include sweetener in my recipe, I would top with banana slices or berries afterwards to sweeten.  You are however free to add your preferred form of sweetener, to the batter or to top afterwards.


1 cup oats

1 medium cooked and skinned sweet potato (I used the purple skinned variety because of its naturally lovely sweetness and aroma)

1/2 cup coconut milk

2 tablespoons cooking oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon fine cinnamon

Method:  process all the ingredients in food processor till a smooth, fine consistency.   Scoop blobs of batter into a medium/hot pan moistened with oil, and turn over after 30 seconds, let the other side brown and then remove from pan. Enjoy as is, or top with your favorite choice of topping.  I use banana slices, berries, honey, coconut cream.


Flourless pancakes

edit:  I wouldn’t call this a pancake, its more like a flapjack.  And its nearly impossible to get it golden brown like in the picture.  I think those are pics of flour flapjacks.  The trick it to make them small, so that its possible to flip them over without breaking them.  They taste ranges from ok to nice.   and I suppose would be nicer if some rice flour or other wheat alternative is mixed in.  Nice with a topping, like banana/coconut cream/berries etc.

Things I always keep in my kitchen

Most of the food I keep are unprocessed, and much cheaper than the processed stuff.

Breakfast stuff

Oats (not the instant stuff)

Milk (always full cream)

Double Cream Greek yoghurt

Whatever fruit I can find



Lunch and Supper stuff

split peas

lentils (which become sprouts)

potatoes and/or sweet potatoes

bulgur wheat



olive oil







cashew nuts and/or pumpkin seeds and/or sesame seeds

Two other Veggies (like carrots, peppers, cabbage, broccoli, marrows, butternut … blah)


Other stuff I sometimes have

meat, fish, chicken

canned tuna, muscles, oysters, canned beans (for when I’m absolutely beyond lazy) – These are not good by the way, too much salt, and I think some other monstrous preservatives.

wraps (for when I’m very lazy too)
