Prep Time: 15 min | Cook Time: 35 min | Serves: 1
Oat Pancakes (Makes 6)
+ 1 1/2 cups oat flour
+ 1/2 tsp baking powder
+ pinch of sea salt
+ 1 egg
+ 1 cup milk of choice
+ butter for cooking the pancakes
+ 1 cup lettuce

To make the pancakes: Transfer flour to a mixing bowl, then stir in baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Add milk mixture to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Swirl butter until it melts. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the heated pan and cook until bubbles form on pancakes. Flip and continue cooking until pancakes become lightly brown on the opposite side. Repeat with the remainder of the batter.
To make the green salad: Add the lettuce, broccolini, and avocado to a medium bowl and drizzle olive oil and lemon juice on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste and toss gently.
Add the halloumi to a greased frying pan and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly golden. Finally, crack one egg into the frying pan and fry until cooked to your liking.
Arrange 2 pancakes in a serving platter, add the green salad and top with halloumi and the fried egg. Sprinkle cottage cheese on top, serve and enjoy!
