A Delicious Plate of Oatflour Crumpets
Recently we have been having oats for breakfast. I make this Vegan style, with almond or soy milk and vegan butter. In addition to oatmeal, we sometimes have semolina and mealie meal/corn meal porridge as well. So I used oatmeal, oatmeal flour and semolina to make something different.
Combined with powdered cinnamon and a few other ingredients I was quite pleased with these Vegan oatsflour crumpets. I enjoy them buttered but you may add fruit to make it a really special dish. Please note that a non-stick pan is recommened so that you can use just the slightest amount of oil. I microwaved some dried apricots with water until it was just soft, mashed it a bit, and added bananas and blueberries. These fruits do add sweetness to the crumpets. The best part is that it can be made in about 20 minutes.
Here is the recipe for Oatflour Crumpets.

Stewed Fruit to top Crumpets
I used just 1 tablespooon of sugar. You may substitute this with artificial sweetener. If you prefer to use regular butter or milk, the recipe should still work.
*You many not use all of the extra 2 tablespoons of oil. Use a spatula to just dip into the oil and then smear the pan. This way you use a real minimum amount of oil. You could add a few drops to the edges of the crumpet if you think it looks too dry.
**Flax seeds may be used as a substitute for egg. Use 1 tablespoon of crushed flax seeds and soak in 3 tablespoons of water. Microwave for about 15 seconds and mix well. It should now have a thick consistency. Add this mix to the rest of the ingredients
Oats Crumpets are a very healthy way to enjoy breakfast. It will make a good start to your day.
