For this recipe you will need….
- 3/4 of a cup of Organic Wholegrain Oat Flour
- 2 table spoons of sugar
- A dash of salt
- 2 Teaspoons of baking powder (as oat flower does not contain gluten this helps them rise)
- 1 Cup of oat milk (any milk of choice will work)
- 2 Teaspoons of ACV or white vinegar (apparently activates the baking powder), I prefer white, tried both.
- 2 eggs
- A dash of olive oil
- Any flavorings you want to add to the mix… vanilla extract, cinnamon etc etc, I did mine plain
When I say a cup, I literally mean a bog standard mug! I’ve always thought how ambiguous ‘cup’ sounds in recipes!
Directions for the mix
Add ingredients 1 – 4 to a mixing bowl, that’s the Buy Whole Foods Online organic oat flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, mix together.
Add ingredients 5-8 to a mixing jug, whisk up until smooth and then gradually add the wet mix into the dry mix in the bowl, mixing as you go.
If you are flavouring stir in number 9 once your mix is made.
Let your mix rest for around 10 minutes, this helps the ingredients activate and thicken
Ladle onto a hot non stick griddle or pan, if using a pan spritz with fry light. You do not need much.
- I found this batter still quite runny compared to traditional pancake mix and kept over pouring, you only need a tiny little bit of batter as it spreads and then the baking powder works it’s magic and they puff up, so if you want them round, less is more.
- Wait until the top starts to bubble before you attempt to flip
Flip them onto a plate, stack ‘em high, top with some extravagant toppings, DEVOUR.
For mine I went for greek yoghurt, berries, lemon curd and Buy Whole Foods Online edible dried red rose petals! For Jamie’s obviously all the sugar, syrup, lemon, berries and marshmallows!
Another of my favourites is banana, peanut butter, syrup and dark chocolate!
I did some research online as I’ve never used oat flour before and never made pancakes in general and took some top tips from other great bakers online (who I will credit in links at the end) to make the recipe and took some of my own shortcuts too!
Pancake options are so endless, once you have your fluffy little cakes what you top them with is totally open to experiment!
