Oatmeal Pancakes - Vegan & GF
Another simple and quick pancake recipe .. This time I reduced the flour and added more oats to it , so it's a mix of oatmeal and pancakes. It's not as fluffy as normal pancakes with eggs and flour but it's definitely healthier and will fill you up at breakfast. It's a healthy morning treat that can be made without refined sugar, dairy, gluten, nuts neither eggs.
The trick to this one is how to add the oats. I mixed the old-fashioned rolled oats with non-dairy milk (you can use oat milk, or any other milk of your choice) and heated them in microwave before adding them to the flour mix. the choice of oats affects the texture so you can use another type (like instant oats), it wont affect the flavor, just the consistency and texture.
Another trick is how to cook... since this pancake is thick and also doesn't have eggs, it will take longer than the regular pancakes to cook, Do not rush the cooking time by turning the heat up.
With this recipe, you'll get around 4 big pancakes, I usually can eat the whole batch (yep, true fact) but with this one, i barely finished 2 and i was full ... that's the effect of oats
Ingredients you'll need to make 4 big pancakes
- 1 Cup old-fashioned Oats (I used Gluten free one)
- 1 Cup non dairy milk
- 3 tbsp canola oil (or other vegetable oil)
- 1/2 cup all purpose gluten free flour (or normal flour)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp raw cane sugar or coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- Dash Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 cup blueberries (optional) or banana topping, maple syrup, nuts
How to make it
- Heat Large skillet on medium-low heat and put some oil or vegan butter
- In a medium bowl, mix the oats with 3/4 cup milk and heat it for approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds in microwave .
- Remove from microwave, add the oil and leave the oats mix for couple of minutes to cool. Add the vanilla too
- In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda
- Make a well in the middle of the flour mix and add the milk & oats mixture
- Combine well with a fork
- Slowly add the apple cider vinegar with the remaining 1/4 cup milk mixture and keep mixing . The mix should be thick, so if you feel it's starting to become liquid, stop adding the milk or add a tablespoon of flour.
- Now you can prepare the pancake by placing approximately 1/2 cup of the batter in the pan and form a round shape. you can add some blueberries at this moment or leave them as topping
- Cook until the edges are starting to become brown (these pancakes cook slower than regular pancakes as they are thicker and do not have eggs). Once it's brown you can flip to the other side
- Let it cook and then enjoy with your favorite topping !
