Heather Honey & Oat Pancakes

These Scottish Heather Honey and Oat Pancakes are so easy to make and are really delicious for breakfast with fresh fruit and a drizzle of raw honey or maple syrup. They are fluffy and light and are so quick and easy to make for breakfast.

These traditional Scottish pancakes are so easy to throw together and make a delicious quick breakfast with fruit. The kids also love to eat them for snacks and I love them with some grated Scottish cheddar.

I would serve these up with slices of banana, apple, pear or even some stewed fruit. A drizzle of raw honey and maybe a sprinkle nuts or seeds works well too. We love to enjoy these with sliced pears they are so delicious!

If you like the sound of these delicious Scottish Heather Honey and Oat Pancakes you may also enjoy some of my other Scottish recipes. I like some cheese on top of these and traditional Scottish Crowdie cheese is super delicious. You can make it really easily using the recipe below. I also love to have these alongside the traditional Scottish potted trout or salmon recipe that I have on my Youtube channel. Its delicious!

Tips for making this delicious recipe:

  • Once you have made up the batter let it sit for a few minutes, I always find it makes better pancakes if its left for a little while.
  • You can serve these up with a quick fresh fruit salad or stew some fruit up in the pan with a dash of water and honey. A sprinkle of cinnamon works well too.
  • These keep really well once made in an airtight container, that is of course if there are any left after making them, my kids also enjoy them for snacks with a little cheese.
  • As suggested above they go really well with a simple crowdie cheese and we love making crowdie with milk that is nearly out of date. Its the perfect combination.
