I'm trying to eat less flour, but I also insist that my meals be tasty. After trying dozens of other people's recipes, I took ideas from all of them to create this. It's probably the most delicious thing I've ever had! By substituting out the eggs, it's easy to turn this into a vegan meal as well. Try a bite before topping with syrup, it's decadently yummy as-is! I make 'silver dollar' pancakes to take as snacks to potlucks.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Process oats in a blender or food processor until the consistency of flour. Combine ground oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.

    Advertisement
  • Whisk eggs, honey, almond milk, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Stir oat mixture into egg mixture until batter is well mixed; fold in blueberries.

  • Heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil on a griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Note:

You don't have to make sure all the grains are ground when processing into a flour. Leaving some adds some nice texture.

My son mixes the liquid ingredients in a blender, and then blends again after adding the blueberries, because he doesn't like how lumpy the berries make the pancakes. I love biting into a nice juicy berry, but they're delicious either way.

Agave nectar or maple syrup can be used in place of the honey if desired.

Any type of milk can be used in place of the almond milk.

Two cups steel-cut oats or 1 1/2 cups oat flour can be substituted for the rolled oats.

First of all, let me say that when I give a rating I consider three stars to be "just OK", for stars to be "hey, his is really good" and five stars to be "OMG this is awesome!" I don't understand how so many people can give this one to five stars. I found this particular recipe to be just OK, but nothing to write home about. I found the texture to be grainy and a bit crumbly. A little xanthan gum probably would've helped. I don't understand why honey would need to be added at all, the pancake syrup you put on afterwards is plenty sweet enough. I followed the recipe to the letter but I would definitely make some changes next time starting with professionally ground oat flour to remove the grainy texture, and I would add xanthan gum to control the crumbliness. In this day and age with so many people being overweight, having type two diabetes or being pre-diabetic, perhaps substituting a little almond flour to lower the carbohydrates, and I find no need for honey at all.

My family really liked these. Even my picky eaters gobbled them up. The only thing I did differently was use frozen blueberries and might I say we had some beautiful purplish blue pancakes. It made it seem fun to the kids to be eating pancakes of a different color. LOL! Will definitely be making again. Read More

Love, love, love! These are so delicious! The second time I made them I added a needs-to-be-used-now banana plus some freshly grated nutmeg. Even better. I took them to work for breakfast; they are great cold! Read More

I don't know if I did something wrong, but the batter was almost the consistency of cookie dough and the turned out like hard biscuits (the first 4). I used steel cut oats instead of rolled and almond oil instead of coconut oil because that's all I had on hand. The second batch I made, I added quite a bit of almond milk until the batter was more like pancake batter and then I put them on the griddle. They were quite dense but the kids loved them and they were much healthier than regular pancakes. Read More

These were a little on the heavy side and could have been improved with the addition of some flour to lighten it up. The upside is they were healthy. Read More

Absolutely delicious! I made these for the kids I'm babysitting (ages 11 6 and 1) and they gobbled them up! I could have cut the amount of honey in half for myself but I didn't want to risk it with kids that are used to syrup covered white flour pancakes. They are thicker than "normal" pancakes but I personally like them thicker. I will be making these again! Read More
