Healthy Pancakes! Easy,Healthy,Gluten Free!

I’ve almost never had a pancake i didn’t like. And I guarantee you will love this recipe. What is different about this recipe vs other pancake recipes on the web is that these ones don’t use flour! Well, you see by “flour” i mean all purpose flour, honestly anything could be a flour…do you think there is such thing as flower flour!? …..Ok lets get back on track.

The base of these pancakes are….OATMEAL  TURNED INTO A FLOUR *GASP*)!! I mean, turning your boring old porridge into something magical is great any day of the week. Why I love using oats is because oats are filled with heart healthy fibre, protein and tons of vitamins and minerals, making it a much better substitute for nutritionally-lacking all purpose flour.

I am a huge fan of extras. Extra Tickets? Count me in. Extra Food? Count me in. Extra Pancake toppings….well you had me at pancake<3. Putting a multitude of toppings on my Pancakes are just a requirement as they take my pancake game  to the next level. I topped these ones *shown above* with Peanut butter layered in between, shredded coconut, buckinis, sautéed berries and maple syrup! This recipe does include eggs making them not totally vegan, but the egg can be replaced by 2 tbsp of Chia or Flax Seeds.

 

Difficulty: Easy  Time: 5-10 Minuites Servings: 1

You will need: 

  • 1/2 cup of oat flour * use large flake oats*
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of coconut flour
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almond milk ( enough to make it a pancake like consistency)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

Directions:

Place 1/2 large flake oats into coffee grinder. Pulse until flour constancy forms. Place oat flour into bowl with coconut flour and baking powder, then add your vanilla, almond milk, cinnamon,egg, and the rest of the ingredients. Set your mix aside for 1-2 minutes to thicken as you wait for your pan to heat up. Place your pan on medium heat and use coconut oil to cook the cakes. This recipe should yield 5-6 small pancakes, perfect for stacking and attacking!
