Russian kefir pancakes (Olady)

I love to prepare those on a Sunday then freeze the leftovers.

Prep. time 10 min. + cooking time 30 min.

You will need for 4 portions:

- 150g oats or oat flour

- 250mL kefir

- 1 egg

- 1 tbsp. coconut sugar (optional)

- 1 tbsp. /12g. baking soda

- 1 tsp. sea salt

- 1 tbsp. coconut oil + for cooking

- sour cream (second best would be cottage cheese)

- berries (I usually purchase them frozen as they are most cost-effective)


Grind the oats into flour using a coffee grinder and place into a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg with the sugar (or just the egg if sugar-free) then add to the oats. Add salt and spices to taste - I personally like vanilla and cinnamon. Mix well.

Warm up the kefir so it is tepid but not warm. Add the coconut oil and stir until it melts.

Add to the mixing bowl.

Add the baking soda, mix well then leave to rest for 15-45 minutes. You will see bubbles forming on the surface. Do not stir the dough once it has rested.

Heat and grease your pan with coconut oil. Using a large spoon, deposit spoonfuls of dough into the pan and leave to cook for 2-3 minutes under medium-low heat. When the edges are golden and the center is solidified, you can turn them around and leave for another minute.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream and berries.
