Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Pancakes
The fluffiest gluten-free pancakes you’ll ever make! These oat flour pancakes make a delicious and healthy breakfast for those slower mornings when you want something sweet.
For as long as I can remember, chocolate chip pancakes have been one of my favourite breakfast foods. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate at breakfast? Oat flour is are all the rage right now, so I figured I’d make one of my favourite recipes (pancakes) with it!
If you’ve never used oat flour before – don’t worry! You can purchase it in the natural/health food section of most grocery stores these days. Or, you can easily make oat flour at home by blending oats in a high-speed blender or food processor. The amount of oats you use gives you approximately the same amount of oat flour, so 1 cup oats = 1 cup oat flour.
Benefits of Using Oat Flour:
Oats are FULL of nutritious properties. They’re a whole grain carbohydrate source. This mean the grain is in tact and hasn’t been stripped of its nutritious properties. Oat flour is a good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre and it can be used gluten-free alternative to traditional all-purpose or whole wheat flour. If you have celiac disease, please ensure that your oats/oat flour are certified gluten-free (check product packaging or call the manufacturer) and produced in a facility where no gluten is processed.
When oat flour is used in baking or in recipes like pancakes, it tends to lend a nutty flavour and typically the texture is a little more moist, sometimes crumbly. I have to say, these pancakes are slightly moist, but mostly fluffy and not crumbly whatsoever. They rise perfectly (thank you, baking powder) and the texture is fantastic. You’ll just have to see for yourself. 🙂
Oat Flour Pancakes Ingredients:
Oat flour, of course.
Baking powder. As mentioned, this helps them rise and fluff up!
Plain greek yogurt, to boost up the protein content.
Oil. You can use coconut, avocado or even butter if you like.
Pure maple syrup. Feel free to use honey, agave syrup, or granulated sugar of choice.
One egg or flax egg – you choose.
Milk of choice.
Chocolate chips – because it wouldn’t be chocolate chip pancakes without them!
Enjoy Your Pancakes With:
There are so many ways to enjoy pancakes. Personally, I’m a traditional pat of butter and maple syrup kind of girl. Occasionally, I like to add some peanut butter to the mix as well.
If you’re feeling creative, try topping your oat flour pancakes with greek yogurt, honey, nut butter, and fruit like sliced banana or berries!
