  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. ​
  2. In a jug, whisk together the oat drink, cider vinegar and 1 tbsp vegetable oil until mixed. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into it. Whisk until smooth, then stir through most of the blueberries. Set aside for 10 mins to thicken.​ 
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the ‘bacon’ and cook for 2-3 mins on either side until golden and crisp. Set aside and keep warm (see tip).​ 
  4. Add a drizzle more oil to the pan and, working in batches, cook ladlefuls of the batter for 3-4 mins on each side, until bubbles start to appear in the batter, then flip and cook for a further 2-3 mins until golden and risen. You should make 12 pancakes.​ 
  5. Stack the pancakes and serve dusted with icing sugar if you like. Drizzle with maple syrup and top with ‘bacon’ and the remaining blueberries. ​

​*Shake the oat milk-alternative well before use for extra creaminess. Swap to regular milk if you prefer.

Tip: Preheat the oven to gas ½, 120°C, fan 100°C and keep the pancakes and bacon warm on a plate in the oven while you cook them in batches.
