A Delicious Plate of Oatflour Crumpets
This recipe makes delicious oat crumpets that are wheat free. The main ingredients are oatmeal flour, quick cooking oats and mealie meal or cornmeal. A very small amount of gor or jaggery is used to sweeten the crumpets. Here is where you can find out More about Gor/Jaggery. Raisins are used because they taste good as well as add sweetness to the crumpets. Please note that a non-stick pan is recommended so that you can use just the slightest amount of oil.
If you have a health condition that requires minimal or no sugar in your diet, please show this recipe to your doctor to ensure that the sweetness of the crumpets is suitable for your health condition.
Combined with powdered cinnamon and a few other ingredients these Vegan oats flour crumpets with mealie meal taste good. I enjoy them buttered but you may add fruit to make it a really special dish. You may top crumpets with any fruits that you have at home. If you like cream, top it with regular whipping cream or vegan cream. I topped mine with strawberries, pear and vegan cream. The best part is that it can be made in about 20 minutes.

I used just 1 teaspoon of gor/jaggery, a kind of sugar. You may substitute this with artificial sweetener. If you prefer to use regular butter or milk, the recipe should still work. Here is where you can find out More about Gor/Jaggery.
*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.
In this recipe I used 1 tablespoon of vinegar to replace an egg. Add this mix to the rest of the ingredients. Towards the end, I just added a little more milk water mix to try making a pancake. The picture has one of the little pancakes as well. But I think the crumpets work better than the pancakes.
