Gluten-Free Pancakes with Oat Flour

Eat

I have tried to make my own gluten-free pancake mix for years now. I’m not talking about those banana-egg-protein pancakes. I shouldn’t even say pancakes, I’m sorry, they’re just not. I’m talking about fluffy little clouds of heaven. The other day all I had on me was oats, as they’re inexpensive and I don’t always keep nut flours stocked. So, I decided to search for a recipe with minimal ingredients that would yield in traditional pancakes…and boy, did I find it.

This recipe has been adapted from The Food Prepper, the genius behind the initial recipe I found! The small changes I made to these help fight inflammation and keep your gut in check, all while tasting like pancakes from your childhood.

Here are the deets:

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 tsp. coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 cup plant or nut milk
  •  1 Tbsp. avocado oil (I used Chosen Foods)
  • 2 eggs (I used Vital Farms)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Make

  1. Blend your oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and coconut sugar in a high-speed blender until a fine flour is formed
  2. Add all wet ingredients to your blender along with the flour mixture
  3. You may need to scrape down the sides/ make sure there are no flour clumps
  4. Heat up a small amount of avocado oil in a non-stick skillet and wait about 2-5 mins for the batter to rise a little and start to bubble from the baking powder
  5. Add about 1/3 cup batter to the heated pan
  6. Cook each side on high for about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy!

*Pro Tip* Enjoy these pancakes topped with some homemade 2 ingredient blueberry compote or raspberry jam!

*Weird Tip* The first pancake always comes out a little botched. Sometimes you just have to get past it and keep cooking! I mainly think this is from not letting the batter sit long enough or the pan not being hot enough.

  • I have tried these with flax eggs as a vegan sub and it simply does not work. If you try any other alt-eggs let me know! I’d love to hear 🙂
