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 🙂

In honor of March being National Women's Month, I only found it fitting to share a hormone balancing breakfast recipe. It's warming on the digestive system and packed full of regulating nutrients. Whether you're an adaptogen pro or new to the game, Maca is one of the most popular hormone-regulating tools. Like all adaptogens, it's responsible for creating homeostasis in the body. I also love this recipe because there are zero added sugars! Hello, healthy blood sugar levels. With all of the excess man-made estrogen in the environment, using my silicone Stasher bag to prep this makes it hormone-friendly. It's so easy to create a plastic- ...

Gluten-Free Blueberry Tahini Cookies
Made these on a whim tonight because I "just felt like baking". Usually, I have to recipe test baked goods pretty hard. Like, I have still yet to master gluten-free pancakes hard. (Let a girl know if you have a secret recipe) These cookies tonight though, they were so fluffy and delightful. I love recipes like this that can be used for multiple different occasions. I could take these to a party or I could literally eat them for breakfast. They're that nourishing! Also super easy to digest for all my GP friends out there, I got you. Let's talk about tahini really quick too. It's one of the highest sources of calcium you can get. I just f ...

Pumpkin Banana Protein Bread
I feel like fall is a recipe incubator. I've been feeling so good about all of these new creations and I hope you do too! Of course, it's pumpkin season so I had to make a pumpkin loaf. I ran out of almond flour, which was what I originally planned on using, but it came out even better than expected by subbing Kodiak Power Cakes. I used the Buttermilk Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix because it's super high in protein, low in sugar, and made with 100% whole grains. Also, they sell this particular mix at Costco (hint hint, it's a deal) This makes for the perfect breakfast or dessert depending on how you top it! This morning I chose to ...
