These are the simplest pancakes to make with kids. You don’t even need scales to weigh out the ingredients – all you need is a cup or a mug!

Use unsweetened almond milk, natural yoghurt and oats for a thick and satisfying smoothie flavoured with your favourite fruit. Great for breakfast, or freeze and enjoy as a pud.
