Pancakes are usually a Sunday treat, but my son has been home, sick this week and without much of an appetite. He usually loves oat porridge for breakfast, so it was not too difficult to convince him of oat  pancakes!   I began making oat flour at home about three years ago when he started eating solid foods. At the time I made oat banana muffins. This recipe is a simple adaptation including milk to make a more pourable pancake mixture. If you‘ve tried my crumpets recipe, I can safely say these oat flour pancakes have the same soft texture as regular flour ones.

Why Use Oat Flour


I have tried other flour-less variants using rice flour, but find the texture a bit too grainy for making pancakes. Oat flour works best so far. Oat flour is gluten-free so does require a rising agent e.g baking powder. It is also sweeter than wheat flour but  has a lesser effect on spiking blood sugar levels because it is high in both soluble and insoluble fiber. It is a good alternative for diabetics to wheat flour. For a complete list of benefits take a look at this interesting article by Women's World

Oat flour is simple to make too. I simply blended regular oats until it ground into a fine powder. I use my spice grinder which seems to works miracles.Similarly you can use a blender or food processor. This recipe is also sugar-free (no added refined sugar) it gets its sweetness from the banana. The milk and egg give it its soft texture.

Egg free Oat Pancakes

For an egg free version, add ¼ cup of yogurt instead of the egg and a pinch of baking powder. This will result in a soft pancake texture
