Oat flour pancakes are my favorite type to make at home because they are not only healthy but also incredibly easy to make. You can even use rolled oats or instant oats that you already have at home to make your own flour!
These pancakes are soft, fluffy, and delicious. Each pancake delivers 6g of protein and 2g of fiber. They can even be frozen and reheated to enjoy throughout the month for a quick breakfast. Also, check out our gluten free belgian waffles and easy overnight oats.
Key ingredients for Oat Flour Pancakes?
This recipe is terrific because it uses no oil or butter. Instead we achieve maximum fluffiness with the use of apple cider vinegar and baking powder. You’ll also need either store bought or homemade oat flour. Additionally I like to add maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. You can also substitute honey or agave.
How to Make Oat Flour
Making oat flour pancakes is ideal because you can easily make your own flour. Simply add rolled or instant oats into a food processor and blend. When using homemade oat flour, let your batter sit for 15 minutes so it is well absorbed. This will result in smoother batter and fluffier pancakes. After resting for 15 minutes, give it one last blend and then your oat flour pancake batter is ready.
For batter that is too runny, simply add more oat flour one tablespoon at a time. If your batter is too thick, add more milk.
- Milk: regular milk, almond milk, oat milk, soy milk
- Maple Syrup: you can also use 2 tbsp of honey, agave, or monk fruit sweetener
How to make oat flour pancakes
1. Add all the ingredients except oat flour and butter into a blender or hand mix jar. Blend until combined.
2. Incorporate oat flour and mix until you get a smooth consistency. The batter should be thick but pourable for your pancakes to lift. If needed, add an extra tablespoon of flour.
Remember, if you use homemade oat flour, let it sit for 15 minutes. This time will allow the oat to hydrate and achieve a smoother texture. Then, pulse to blend one more time. If you use store-bought oat flour or instant oats homemade flour, you don’t need to wait those 15 minutes.
3. Then, heat a non-stick pan or skillet over medium to low heat. Once heated, spray with olive oil or butter. Then, drop a few tbsps of your batter to make your pancakes.
4. Once the sides are set, use a flat spatula to flip them over. Then, cook them on the other side for one more minute and remove them from the skillet.
Serve warm with your favorite toppings.
The best part about enjoying pancakes is all the delicious toppings you can add. Here is an easy list you can reference when deciding how to serve your pancakes.
- Hawaiian Pancakes: chopped pineapple, coconut flakes, macadamia nuts
- Fresh Fruit: peaches, cherries, strawberries, blueberries
- Banana’s & Peanut Butter
- Chocolate Chips: add chocolate chips to the batter and sprinkle on the top
- Apple Pie: sauteed cinnamon apples with whipped cream (or greek yogurt) and chopped walnuts
