It’s Sunday! It’s pancake day haha! I am actually not a fan of pancakes but I wanted to make a healthy version of you guys and this healthy version is vegan and absolutely delicious! No guilt here, it’s all made with good quality ingredients, and there is not even flour in these pancakes. Yep, that’s true!
These vegan oatmeal pancakes are made with gluten-free oats, almond milk, banana, chia seeds, vanilla, baking powder and salt, and I have used coconut oil to cook them and pure maple syrup and fresh fruits to garnish. It’s almost like having a bowl of oatmeal but served in pancakes haha!
They are very nutritious and are such a great way to start the day! Especially right now since it’s starting to get cold outside. These are really good and they are healthy too. They are a great source of carbohydrates, fiber and healthy fats. I’m not a big advocate for coffee but a cup of organic, fresh homemade coffee would be great with these! It’s Sunday after all, it’s nice to have a little something different or something we wouldn’t have everyday!
Not only these pancakes are delicious, but they are very easy to make too! I’m in a small apartment here in Manhattan for my studies so my kitchen isn’t really big but I try to do my best with what I have. So what I did is simply use my vitamix to blend the mix until smooth and simply pour the batter in batches into a hot pan with the coconut oil. They cooked very well and they turned out great!! They were crispy on the outside and a little moist in the inside.
The recipe serves 2. These flourless pancakes are vegan, gluten and soy-free.
- 2 cups rolled oats, preferably gluten-free
- 1¼ cup almond milk
- 1 large banana
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Pinch sea salt
- Coconut oil or organic grass-fed butter for cooking
- Fresh fruits, to garnish
- Pure maple syrup, to garnish
- In a blender, combine the oats, milk, banana, chia, vanilla, baking powder and salt, and blend until nice and smooth. Set aside.
- In a pan, heat coconut oil over medium-low heat.
- Slowly, pour some batter into the pan and make a uniform round. Allow to cook before flipping it over. Do this process again for the rest of the batter, making one pancake at the time. You should have enough batter for about 4 or 6 pancakes.
- Garnish with your favorite fruits and add a little maple syrup to sweeten.
