  1. Grind the rolled oats and chia seeds in a grinder to a fine powder and set aside.

  3. Add the ground oat and chia mixture to the blender and pulse until well combined. Transfer the batter to a bowl and set it aside for 5-10 minutes.

  4. Add choco chips to the batter and mix.

  5. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan or skillet on low-medium heat and brush the pan with olive oil.

  6. Using a 1/2 cup measure or a spoon ladle, scoop the batter onto the skillet and slightly press down with a spatula to flatten it to a pancake shape.

  7. Cook for 4-5 minutes on one side and flip the pancake. Cook for another 4-5 minutes on the other side or until golden brown on both sides.

  8. Repeat the process with the remaining batter to make the pancakes.

  9. Serve the pancakes with maple syrup, sliced banana, chopped apples and strawberries on top.

Tips & Tricks

  1. This recipe yields around 4-5 medium-sized pancakes, enough to serve 2 people depending on the size you make.

  2. To prevent the pancakes from burning, cook them over low heat.

  3. You can use almond or oat milk instead of regular milk.

  4. You can use honey instead of maple syrup.

  5. Crushed/ grated chocolate can be added to the batter instead of choco chips.
