Makes 100 pancakes


  • 1550ml buttermilk
  • 2.5 cups rolled oats
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • 3 1/3 cups spelt flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2.5 teaspoons bi-carb soda
  • 10 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 10 eggs
  • 10 egg whites
  • 10 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 small lemons zested
  • 2.5 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or essence


Pour buttermilk over oats and leave for 10 minutes.

In a fresh bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarb and sugar, stir into the oat mix.

In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, whites, oil, vanilla and lemon until light. Add to oat mix.

Place a drizzle of olive oil in a pan and allow to sizzle.

Pour tablespoons of pancake mix into pan and cook until golden golden brown on first side and then flip over and repeat.

Allow to cool a little and serve with your favourite topping.
