Key Ingredients

Oat milk is a thick and naturally sweet non-dairy milk that works great for pancakes! Buy packaged oat milk or make your own homemade oat milk to replace regular milk.

Eggs bind the ingredients together and add structure.

Maple syrup is the only sweetener you need for a perfectly sweet pancake.

Rolled oats thicken up the batter and take the place of all purpose flour while giving it structure. Remember to use certified gluten-free oats to make your oat flour pancakes.

Yes! Place them into a zip-top freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave in 20 second intervals until warmed through.

What can you put on top of pancakes?

Fresh berries, sliced bananas, coconut flakes, jam, lemon curd, peanut butter, almond butter, coconut whipped cream, granola, chocolate chips, honey, or apple butter all taste amazing on pancakes!

Can I use a flax egg instead of a regular egg?

I think so, but I have not tested it. If you make these into vegan oatmeal pancakes, please let make know how they turn out!
