Expert Tips for Making Oat Flour Pancakes
  • Use cooking spray to grease your pan, or wipe a paper towel dipped in oil around the pan for an even coating.
  • I recommend using rolled oats, instant oats, or pre-made oat flour for this recipe.
  • Store pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until just warmed through.
  • To make these gluten-free, just make sure to get gluten free certified oats
  • Serve these with sliced bananas, chocolate chips, maple syrup, honey, nut butters, fruit preserves, or fresh berries!
  • Nutritional information includes 1 pancake, 1/2 a banana sliced, 2 teaspoons of chocolate chips and a drizzle of maple syrup!
