Soft, fluffy, and delicious tasting, these healthy oat pancakes are an amazing way to start your day. The oat flour based batter provides a unique flavour which will leave you craving for more.
You can let your creativity shine while topping these cakes. Personally, I love fresh fruits like blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and bananas. For a dreamy stack of scrumptious pancakes, I also top with a scoop of oat yogurt or a dollop of whipped cream (coconut whipped cream is an incredible plant based alternative).
As a final touch to finish the dish, serve with the perfect drizzle of our Blueberry Blossom Honey.
This recipe can easily be multiplied if you're cooking pancakes for multiple people.
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Servings: 5 - 6 pancakes
- Difficulty Level: Beginner
- 1 Cup Oat Flour
- ¼ Tsp Salt
- 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
- 1 Cup Milk (I use Almond or Oat milk for plant based alternatives)
- 2 Tbsp Earthen Honey of your preference (I love Blueberry Blossom Creamed Honey)
- ½ Tsp Vanilla Extract (Optional)
In a mixing bowl, combine oat flour, salt, and baking powder. If you don’t have oat flour, you can grind rolled oats in a coffee grinder or blender until it reaches a fine texture.
Blend in the remaining liquid ingredients and mix well until there are no lumps. This will help create nice fluffy cakes. Be careful not to beat the batter too intensely to avoid over activating the baking powder.
Heat up a non-stick pan or lightly grease a regular pan. Add a scoop of batter to the hot pan and use the bottom of the ladle to lightly push the edges of the batter outwards to form a nice circle shaped cake.
Experiment with the first couple of pancakes to calibrate how hot to set your pan and how long to cook each cake until they are beautifully golden.
Once the pancake is full of bubbles and the outer edges have visibly dried out, use a thin spatula to carefully free the cake from the pan before flipping it over. It should be a nice golden colour. You can adjust the size of pancakes to your preference and cook multiple cakes simultaneously if your pan or griddle is large enough.
To keep the cooked pancakes warm, stack them on a plate and cover with a tea towel while you cook the rest of the batter.
Dressing the cakes is only bound by the limitations of your imagination! They taste delicious with a light buttering between cakes and topped with your favourite fruit (I love fresh strawberries, blueberries, or bananas), and a scoop of plain yogurt or whipped cream.
