Simply Delicious Vegan Oat Pancakes
These Vegan Oat Pancakes are very close in taste and nutrition to a bowl of oatmeal. I have a confession! I’m not a fan of oatmeal. Not the flavor but the texture. I don’t know why but the oatmeal could taste great and that texture makes it impossible to finish. So this is my solution.
It’s made with homemade oat flour and coconut sugar. The oat flour is easy to make but takes a little time. You will need a coffee grinder and about 15 – 30 min. I add a bit less than 1/4 cup at a time which only fills the grinder halfway. It may be different depending on the size of yours. Mine is not expensive or fancy. I think it cost me $15 and grinds the coffee according to how long you hold the button down. Nothing fancy but it does the job great. I should add that mine also states that you can grind spices in it. This may make a difference or it may not. I’ve never tried this with another grinder. I have tried to make flour in my cuisine art food processor but somehow it doesn’t get as fine as I want it. Choose whichever you feel will best do the job for you.
I simply add the quick oats to the grinder and grind until the oats have a powdery consistency. It doesn’t take long to make one scoop but to do a couple cups it will take about 15 – 30 min depending on the equipment you’re using.
Vegan Oat Pancakes
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup oat flour
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 tblspn arrowroot
2 tspn pure coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
Mix the almond milk, vanilla, coconut sugar, salt, and chia seeds together in a bowl. Slowly add the oat flour to avoid clumps and get an even smooth texture. The batter will be loose at first but after a couple minutes will thicken up. This is a great time to heat the skillet up. I use one teaspoon of coconut oils just to lightly coat the pan. You can use a paper towel to spread the oil without adding additional. Heat the pan to medium heat. Because of the coconut sugar, you will want to check the first cake to be sure it is not cooking on the bottom too quickly. If the bottom does cook too quickly turn the heat down a bit.
