Pro tips to make them as much perfect as you can:

  • Don’t overheat the pan, then the pancakes will burn before they are ready.
  • Make your own oat flour using a food processor or a blender until you get a fine flour.
  • The best way how to know, that you need to flip the pancake over, is when bubbles appear in the batter.
  • Don’t overmix the batter, because you can lose fluffiness of the pancakes.
  • Try to serve them warm, right away out of the pan.
  • I didn’t grease the pan. Pay attention to the pan you have. If you have a new, non-stick pan you can try to bake them without greasing it, but if you have an older one, then maybe it’s better to put in a little oil. You can also use coconut oil.
  • Try to cut the apples into thin slices, then they will bake better.
