Basic Oat Pancakes

There’s nothing I enjoy more than pancakes on a Sunday morning. But when someone in the house can’t have wheat they tend to miss out. Oats make great wholemeal flour which is dense and filling. These pancakes stick together like regular pancakes but you will find that they keep you full all morning and are less moreish than…
