These easy, quick, and nourishing oat flour pancakes are the perfect way to start any day!
Why Oat Flour Pancakes Are Great
Oat flour pancakes taste delicious, for starters, but they also have so many health benefits to offer. Oat flour pancakes are whole grain, which is going to help to keep you nice and full all morning long. Plus, pancakes made 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 can be made in a blender, a food processor, or even by hand! They are my go-to when it comes to a filling breakfast that has an easy prep and clean up.
How to Make Your Own Oat Flour
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 Oat Flour Pancakes
There are three possible ways to make these easy out flour pancakes: a blender, a food processor, or by hand using a whisk. My absolute favorite method is the blender method, since I find the clean up super simple this way.
First, make your oat flour using a blender or food processor if you’re not using store bought.
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.
If you don’t have oats on hand to make oat flour, you can use whole wheat or all purpose flour in its place. Just note that the consistency may be different, and you may need to use less all purpose flour to get the same consistency as oat flour.
Basically, yes! You can easily make your own oat flour at home by blending quick or rolled oats into a fine powder.
Yes, they do! In fact, pancakes store much better when frozen versus storing them in the refrigerator.
The best way to freeze homemade pancakes is to place your (cooled) pancakes on a lined baking sheet in a single layer. Place the baking sheet in the freezer, and allow to freeze completely. Remove the pancakes and store them in a freezer bag for up to 2 months.
Leftover pancakes can easily be reheated in the microwave in 30 second intervals, or in a toaster oven for 1-2 minutes.
If you don't have a blender, you can easily use a food processor instead. Alternatively, you can use store bought oat flour and make your pancake batter with an old fashioned bowl and whisk!
