Why Oat Flour Pancakes Are Great
Oat flour pancakes taste delicious, for starters, but they also have so many health benefits to offer.

Plus, pancakes make with oat flour are also gluten-free so they're great for anyone with a gluten allergy or sensitivity.
How To Make Pancakes With Oat Flour
These oatmeal flour pancakes are make in the blender for super easy prep and clean up. And while you can use store bought oat flour, it couldn't be easier to make your own! All you have to do is throw some oats (I like to use instant, but old fashioned would also do!) and blend them up in the blender until they turn into a nice, fine powder. Boom! You just made your own oat flour! See? Told you this pancake recipe with oat flour was simple!
I also used homemade oat flour in my recipe for easy cookie dough bites. You can whip up a batch of those for snacking (or dessert-ing!) when you make your oat flour for these pancakes!
The blender that I use is a Ninja and I am OBSESSED with it! It's by far the best blender that I've ever owned! This Ninja blender is like the one that I love and it's worth every penny!
How To Make Oatmeal Flour Pancakes
First, you'll need to make the oat flour, like I mentioned.
Next, add in the dry ingredients.
Then, add your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
Finally, after you have everything blended together for the oat flour pancakes you can drop ~1/4 cup of the batter onto a hot griddle. I never used to think we needed a griddle, I mean can't you just us a pan? BUT... having a griddle is SO handy and you can cook them all at once. So, you don't have some cold and some warm pancakes! Here is the same griddle that I have!
When you see the pancakes start to bubble up a bit and firm (about 2-3 minutes) flip them and let them cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or so.
Top your freshly made pancakes with oat flour with whatever toppings you like! I love a big dollop of greek yogurt, some fruit like berries or bananas, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
