Delicious savoury pancakes made with oats, fresh spinach leaves and avocado. Make as a small stack or larger pancakes to fill and fold.

Vegan and easy to make gluten-free.


  • 1 cup of oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond or oat milk
  • ½ a ripe avocado
  • 1 to large handfuls fresh spinach leaves
  • 2 tablespoon of natural coconut yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of salt
  • a grind of fresh black pepper
  • extra virgin olive



  1. Use either a food processer or a high powered blender add the oats, and pulse until they become a flour. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until you have a smooth, slightly thick, vibrant green pancake batter.
  2. Place a large frying pan on the hob and use a folded piece of kitchen paper to lightly wipe the base of the pan with a small amount of oil. Pancakes will soak up oil if they are fried and become dense and glutinous. Heat the pan over medium heat.
  3. To check the pan is at the right temperature spoon a tablespoon of the mixture in the pan and see how it cooks.
  4. Once the pan is at the correct temperature, use a ¼ sized measuring cup to scoop the batter into the frying pan. Depending on the size of your pan you may be able to cook 3 or 4 pancakes at once – they will spread slightly. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the underside of the pancake has started to turn a light golden brown. Flip the pancakes over and cook for a further 3 to 5 minutes. Savoury pancakes take slightly longer to cook through than our sweet ones do.
  5. If you are serving all the pancakes at the same time put the oven on a low heat and place a plate in the middle. Transfer the pancakes to the oven as they are cooked.
  6. Once all the pancakes are cooked serve and enjoy with your choice of savoury toppings from garlic mushrooms, nut butter drizzle or fresh herby salads.


Each small pancake takes 4 minutes to cook on each side, we cook a few in the pan at the same time.

Each larger pancake is thinner and takes 3 minutes to cook on each side.
