Commonly Asked Questions
Are oatmeal pancakes healthy?
Yes! Oats alone are considered to be among the healthiest grains. Oats are gluten-free. It’s rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Adding it into our pancake batter definitely gives our soft and fluffy pancakes a healthy boost. We also suggest doing away with the syrup for a truly healthy meal. You can top it with fruits like strawberries to make it naturally sweet and more nutritious.
How do I make oatmeal pancakes without flour?
We can totally go flourless with this pancake recipe. You can use 1 1/2 cups of finely ground oats to replace 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour in this recipe, aside from the 1 cup of rolled oats for texture since oats are a good substitute for flour. You can pulse or blend your whole oats to a fine powder for a smoother texture for your pancakes. Another good flour replacement could be almond paste and egg whites. Do this by mixing 1 1/3 cup of almond paste and 1 large egg white. For gluten-free flour options, you can go with almond flour, buckwheat, cornmeal, and oat flour.
Pancakes taste incredible if done right. But no matter how good something tastes, eating the same thing can get boring in the long run. It’s a good thing you can go a little crazy and experiment with pancakes. Whether you like it simple or fancy, healthy, or dripping with syrup, it’s entirely up to you.
