This weekend we had a few friends in town and in our normal Sunday fashion, we decided to make them our house famous, and soon to be world famous, oatmeal pancakes.

Well…in case you were wondering, they were an absolute hit. They asked if I had this recipe on the blog, and as often as we make them, I realized that I never actually bothered blogging adding them to the blog! That in itself really is quite a sin because these puppies contain 4 ingredients, use only the blender to make and pour, are chewy, fluffy and fool even the pickiest of pancake eaters. And the best part is, they’re as healthy for you as eating a bowl of oatmeal!

Oatmeal Vegan Pancakes

*Oats are high in antioxidants and have been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cups almond milk
  • 2 tbs maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1/2 tbs vanilla

HOW IT’S MADE:

  1. Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until creamy.
  2. Turn on your stovetop and start heating up your favorite non-stick pan or cast-iron skillet.
  3. Place a small amount of coconut oil in the pan and pour a pancake-sized amount of the batter directly onto the pan.
  4. When you see those glorious bubbles pop up, that means it’s time to flip those bad boys.
  5. Enjoy with a small amount of almond butter and maple syrup on top :)

 

Note: I do not recommend using oat flour for this recipe. It makes the batter oddly dry and let’s face it, it costs a heck of a lot more than good ol’ rolled oats.

You can even keep a few pancakes in the freezer and pull them out as needed for a mess-free and portable snack for your little ones.

Enjoy!
