Made with just 6 pantry staple ingredients (some of which I use in my oatmeal), these gluten-free, super Easy Oatmeal Pancakes are thick and delicious.
**This post for Easy Oatmeal Pancakes was originally published in January 2014. It has been edited and is being republished today.**
These Easy Oatmeal Pancakes are:
• Gluten-free (made with ground-up certified gluten-free oats, they are completely flourless.
• Refined sugar-free
• Made with 6 Ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
• Tasty (with cinnamon and cardamom adding a delicious flavor punch)!
What are the 6 Ingredients needed to make these pancakes?
- Rolled oats not quick oats
- Baking powder
- Almond milk (or milk of your choice)
*I ground the rolled oats in my blender to use in this recipe. You can also use store-bought oat flour – approximately 1.75 cups of oat flour = 1 cup of rolled oats. Or, you could simply grind rolled oats at home in your blender as I did for this recipe. If you do use store-bought oat flour, you might have to add less milk so the batter is thick – almost like a thick cake batter consistency.
**Also, I used a bit of salt but did not place it in the ingredient list.
I ADORE Oats…
Rolled or Steel Cut, baked or boiled…
To me, they are pretty marvelous!
Recently, even my daughter has started to lean toward oats instead of other breakfast choices – and as a parent, it sure warms my heart!
She is FINALLY choosing what I have been eating instead of turning up her nose and protesting its existence!
Did I tell you, I adore oats?
Mostly, I have them in a bowl…
Sometimes, in these Chocolate Pretzel bars
Aaaannnd… recently – in PANCAKES!!!
How to make these easy oatmeal pancakes:
- Add the rolled oats to a blender and blend till they resemble a flour-like consistency. Then spoon them into a bowl.
- Also to the bowl, add in the baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix with a spoon. Then add in the milk and eggs and mix till well incorporated. Set mixture aside for 5-8 minutes to thicken up.
- While waiting, place a pan over a low-medium flame and let it warm.
- When pancake mixture is thickened, grease pan with vegan butter and ladle 2-3 tablespoonfuls of mix onto pan, and cook 2-3 minutes on each side, till golden and that golden ring forms around the circumference of the pancake.
- Serve pancakes with whipped cream, golden syrup or maple syrup or jam, and raspberries and enjoy!
The same ingredients that make up my morning oat bowls, went into these pancakes, only in slightly different quantities.
Unfortunately, the amount of ingredients I used resulted in only 3 pancakes, and, for some reason, basic math fractions were forgotten about when it came to dividing these rounds of deliciousness up between the two of us!
You would think two people who are pretty good with their math skills would be able to figure out that each of our plates should have 1.5 – right?
But, before I could take a picture of a forkful, two of these pancakes were on my daughter’s plate – leaving me with one.
After an intense round of dueling forks, where pieces of these pancakes were flicked to the floor …and, subsequently, into my dog’s belly, we finally called a truce and settled on finishing these in peace – while shooting each other the stink eye!
It’s your turn to play dueling forks with someone – over a set of these marvelous oat pancakes!
Then please let me know how marvelous you think they are!
I used whipped cream, golden syrup, and raspberries to top mine – these pancakes have no sugar in them – so please feel free to add 2 tablespoons if you feel the need for sweeter pancakes, but, with syrup, you really won’t miss the sugar at all.
