Rasmalai Oat Pancakes

This blender oatmeal pancakes are just out of the world in flavors! These eggless pancakes are loaded with the flavors of traditional dessert , Rasmalai. Drench these pancakes with syrup or with a delicious flavored milk/rabdi sauce with cardamom and saffron for a special breakfast for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day! These pancakes are like having rabdi malpua.

These pancakes are my take on the trending blended oatmeal pancakes. This is an easy recipe where you blend the oats with other ingredients that add to the flavors, reminding the flavors of the addictive dessert , rasmalai. This even makes you wonder whether it is breakfast or dessert. This is a delicious way to start your day!

Why should you make these rasmalai blender oatmeal pancakes ?

These are delicious!

Addictive flavors!

Makes everything special.

Easy and quick recipe to make.

A wonderful way to have oatmeal.

This way of serving with milk as sauce makes a complete meal

Loved by everyone across all age groups.

What are the ingredients needed to make these pancakes?

To make the pancakes the following are required:

Oats - rolled oats are used in this recipe.

Banana - adds sweetness and makes the pancakes soft.

Milk - regular milk is used. Plant based milk can also be used, but the flavors may be altered.

Sugar - 1 to 2 tablespoons, for a low sugar version, this can be skipped.

Baking powder - this is the leavening agent used. 

Cardamom - adds to the aroma and flavor

Saffron - adds color, flavor and aroma.

Aquafaba - acts as egg replacer. If you do not have, then too the pancakes may work as the bananas and baking powder are used in the recipe.

Pistachios - adds flavor and nutrition.

I highly recommend the addition of cardamom, saffron, and pistachios along with regular milk as it gives the classic touch to the traditional rasmalai in these pancakes.

Butter - make these with butter as it adds tons of flavor. 

For the milk rabdi sauce:

These pancakes taste great with syrup, but they are amazing in flavor, giving the exact experience of having rasmalai, when you serve it with flavored milk. This is a quick recipe for the flavored milk without spending longer time reducing the milk.

Evaporated milk - this is the key make quick milk sauce to pour into these pancakes

Sugar - a little sugar adds sweetness to the sauce. Since the evaporated milk has sweetness because of milk being reduced, a little sugar goes a long way.

Cardamom, saffron - adds to classic aroma and flavor. Do not skip these.

What toppings can be added?

Butter and a few pistachios are great to have as toppings. Cardamom scented cream also works wonderfully well. Almonds or cashews can also be used.

Are these vegan?

No. This recipe is not vegan. Butter and cow milk are used. Using a plant based milk will work for the recipe but the flavors of rasmalai would be missing.

January is #nationaloatmealmonth. Christie is hosting an event, "Outstanding Oatmeal" in #ourfamilytable to celebrate the humble and mighty oats. This is my share for the theme.

Oats are my favorite grain and my day starts with a bowl of oats. Many a times this savory Masala Oats is my preference to have as breakfast. During fall, I opt for Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats too! And in winter, I love this Slow Cooker Gingerbread Oats. Oats are versatile and check the links below for a few outstanding oat recipes from the blog.
