Healthy Oat Pancakes

I love having pancakes for breakfast.  It doesn’t have to be just on the weekend, I’m talking ANY day of the week!  I don’t think I’m alone in my thinking here….am I right?  Well, you can have pancakes any time your little heart pleases with this recipe.  It makes 6 small pancakes, and I like to top mine off with bananas (or any fresh fruit would be amazing), whipped coconut cream, and yummmy pure maple syrup!  *I added toasted chopped hazelnuts to this stack!

Ingredients for pancakes:

  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats (100 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of fine kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (120 grams), room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (vegetable or canola would work also)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Topping suggestions: fruit, whipped cream, pure maple syrup, and *toasted chopped hazelnuts

Instructions:

  1. Blend the oats in a blender or food processor until they are fine and the texture of flour.
  2. Place oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl and whisk until combined.
  3. Place the milk, vinegar, egg, oil, maple syrup and vanilla in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.  Set aside for 10 minutes while you heat a nonstick skillet to medium/low heat.
  5. Place batter in nonstick pan and cook on both sides (about 1 minute per side).
  6. Pancakes can be kept warm on a platter in the oven until all of the pancakes are cooked and ready to eat.  Batter makes 6 (1/4 cup each) pancakes.

I hope you make these delicious (and healthy) pancakes!  If you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I would love to hear from you and see your pictures!
