Loved this - thanks! To make oatmeal, I just whizzed some porridge oats in the blender (having googled images to find out what the British English translation of 'old-fashioned oatmeal' is!). Instead of buttermilk, used some skimmed milk with a bit of lemon juice and half a large pot of plain yoghurt. Pancakes rose beautifully. Tried whizzing some nuts in the blender too - this gave a nutty taste with a smooth texture. Other variations we liked were: added some dessicated coconut, frozen blueberries, and mashed banana. All this made it very filling. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream plus sliced bananas and honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar for a treat. Also works well with a spoonful of creamy yoghurt plus more fruit, for breakfast. To make it healthier, I cut the oil a bit and it didn't seem to affect the taste, and reduced the sugar & subbed honey for it. I wouldn't put olive oil in this, as it's got a strong savoury taste. I used rapeseed oil (called Canola oil in the US), as it has a neutral taste and is very healthy.
