Let’s start by taking a look at the ingredients list, real food that will nourish your body and satisfy your taste buds. Here’s what you need to make these vegan oatmeal pancakes:

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour or oat flour (use gluten-free if needed)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup of almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of ground flax seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Note that you can use quick oats or old-fashioned rolled oats interchangeably in this recipe. You can either use store-bought oat flour or make your own by blending rolled oats in a food processor or blender until it turns into a fine flour consistency.

Also, feel free to switch the almond milk for soy milk, oat milk, or any plant-based milk that you prefer. If you’re allergic to nuts, use seed milk instead.

Remember that having all your kitchen ingredients measured and set up will help you focus on the tasks at hand and minimize errors and cooking time.

Now, let’s get started on making these delicious Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes! Gather all the necessary ingredients and equipment before you begin. Here’s how to make them:

Step 1: Blend The Oats

In a food processor or blender, add oats 1 cup (100g) and blend until you get fine flour-like consistency of oats.

Step 2: Combine The Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together Oat Flour (1 cup/120g), all-purpose flour (1 cup/120g), Baking Powder (2 tsp), Cinnamon (1 tbsp), Salt (1/4 tsp), and Coconut Sugar (2 tbsp).

Step 3: Add Wet Ingredients

Make a well in the center of the dry mixture, then pour in Almond Milk (2 cups/480ml), Maple Syrup (3 tablespoons/45ml), Ground Flax Seeds (3 tablespoons/27g) + 9 tablespoons Water, and Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon). Mix well until combined.

Step 4: Mash The Banana

In a separate bowl, mash one ripe banana with a fork until it is smooth enough to add to the pancake mix.

Step 5: Combine And Mix

Pour the mashed banana into the mixing bowl with other wet ingredients. Then combine wet and dry ingredients together. Mix well but not too much; overmixing will result in dense and chewy pancakes.

Step 6: Cook The Pancakes

Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Spoon batter onto the pan using an ice cream scoop or 1/4 measuring cup for each pancake. Cook for about two minutes on each side until golden brown.

This recipe makes about 12-14 fluffy pancakes that are perfect for breakfast on any day of the week! Drizzle with extra maple syrup and top off with fresh fruits to make them even more delightful.

Substitutions and Variations

Are you looking to switch things up or cater to dietary restrictions? No problem! There are many substitutions and variations you can make to this vegan oatmeal pancakes recipe.

First, let’s talk about flour options. While we recommend oat flour for a classic oatmeal pancake taste, you can also substitute with spelt flour or all-purpose flour if you prefer. For those who follow a gluten-free diet, you can use one-to-one gluten-free baking mix or almond flour to avoid wheat-based flours altogether.

If you don’t have quick oats on hand, no need to run out to the store! You can blend rolled oats in a food processor or blender until they reach a finer consistency. Additionally, if you want your pancakes to be extra fluffy, try using a mixture of both rolled oats and quick oats.

For variations, why not try adding blueberries or chocolate chips for something sweet? Or mix in shredded coconut and chopped pecans for a tropical twist. If bananas aren’t your favorite fruit, mashed strawberries can be used as a delicious alternative.

Lastly, for those who prefer their pancakes with less sugar, feel free to skip the maple syrup topping and instead add a sprinkle of cinnamon and drizzle with honey or agave nectar. The possibilities are endless when it comes to making this vegan oatmeal pancake recipe your own, so have fun experimenting with different ingredients and flavors!

Now, it’s time to talk about what to do with any leftover vegan oatmeal pancakes or how you can prep these ahead of time for busy mornings. First of all, these pancakes are perfect for meal prepping because they’re easy to make and store well in the fridge or freezer.

After making a batch of delicious vegan oatmeal pancakes, let them cool down before storing them away in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. In case you want to freeze them, put them into a zipper bag or airtight container separated with parchment paper and label them with the date. That way they’ll more easily stay fresh longer.

To reheat, simply microwave the pancakes until warm (about 30 seconds in the microwave should be enough), or if you have more time, use a skillet over medium-low heat until warmed through. This will keep them moist and fluffy, and you’ll have breakfast ready for you quickly!

One added bonus of storing these vegan oatmeal pancakes is that they make an excellent snack option too! Grab one on-the-go or top it with some nut butter for a satisfying mid-day munch.

Now that you know all the ins and outs of making vegan oatmeal pancakes, let’s talk about how to achieve optimal results when preparing this delicious recipe. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

1. Use Quick Oats: Using quick oats rather than old-fashioned rolled oats will give your pancakes a smoother texture.

2. Don’t Overmix the Batter: Mix the batter until it is just combined. Overmixing can create tough and rubbery pancakes.

3. Let the Batter Rest: Allow the batter to rest for a few minutes before cooking to give the oats time to absorb moisture and for the gluten-free ingredients to expand.

4. Create Perfect Pancake Shape: Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup or ice cream scoop to create evenly-sized and well-shaped pancakes.

5. Adjust the Heat: Start with medium heat and adjust as needed. Too high of heat can burn the outside while leaving the inside undercooked.

6. Keep Them Warm: To keep your pancakes warm while making a batch, preheat your oven to 200°F and place them on a baking sheet in a single layer in the oven until ready to serve.

7. Make Ahead & Freeze: Prepare pancake batter in advance and freeze in portions that match serving size needs. When breakfast rolls around, grab what you need, toss them on griddle or skillet, and have fresh pancakes with minimal effort!

8. Experiment with Toppings: Top your vegan oatmeal pancakes with fresh fruit, maple syrup, chopped nuts, dairy-free whipped cream, or dairy alternatives like a berry compote syrup or peanut butter sauce—it’s up to you!
