Directions :

- Add in the porridge oats, egg, chia seeds and mix well

- If the mixture is too dry, add another tablespoon of milk until you get a thick consistency

- Repeat with the rest of the mix

- Cook for 5 minutes on either side

Notes :

- Top with greek yogurt, banana, mixed berries and cinnamon

- Add a tablespoon of nut butter to the batter before cooking to give your pancakes more texture

- Make the batter the night before and leave in the fridge. But sure to add in the chia seeds just before cooking though. (If left overnight they will soak up all the liquid and your batter will be too thick)
