This blender oatmeal pancakes was originally going in my cookbook but as I already have another pancake recipe in my book (buckwheat raspberry) and just too many recipes, I decided to remove this one and put it on my blog instead. It’s an easy to make recipe as the batter is made in the blender – perfect for busy parents. The kids love this recipe. I hope your family will enjoy it too.
What’s in the pancakes?
Gluten-free oats (you can use rolled or quick cooking – doesn’t really matter), almond milk (you could use coconut milk as well), banana (bonus added fruit!), flax or chia seeds, vanilla, baking powder and pink salt.
I cook them with coconut oil but you could use another oil or grass-fed butter if you prefer.
How are they made?
Very simple. I simply use a blender to make the batter. Instead of using flour or oat flour, by using rolled or quick cooking oats, the oats naturally get into a flour by blending them. I use my Vitamix to make the batter. You simply put all the ingredients together and blend until smooth. You are now ready to cook.
How do I serve pancakes?
Easy. Pure maple syrup, fresh fruits and voila! You could also do fruit compote or jam but to keep it simple fruits and maple syrup is enough I find.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. The oatmeal pancakes are gluten-free and vegan, and the recipe makes 8 small pancakes. They are perfect for summer when served with berries. During fall and winter, it could also be served with warm apples or pears. If you don’t have maple syrup, you can also try honey, coconut nectar or blackstrap molasses.
