Gluten Free Oat Pancakes

Have you ever experimented with oat flour? It’s basically rolled oats ground into flour.  It has 7 grams of protein and 4 grams of dietary fiber per 1/3 cup!  My family lovessss pancakes-we make them at least twice per week.  I usually combine oat flour another flour such as whole wheat or all-purpose, but this morning I tried 100% oat flour and the pancakes were a hit! They were a bit on the thinner side but still soft and delicious! They were perfect for my kids who love using cookie cutters to create shapes out of their pancakes.  Add blueberries or bananas for additional nutrients and fun flavor combinations!

1 1/2 cup oat flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons white vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  4. Add liquid ingredients to dry and whisk until just combined.
  5. Heat a griddle over medium heat

  8. Cook for about 1-2 minutes until golden and flip and cook for another minute.
