Gluten-free Oatmeal Pancakes

Are you celiac, gluten-intolerant or just cutting down on the amount of wheat you consume?  Here is a replacement for the pancakes you are craving.   While they may not look like wheat flour pancakes, they are easy to make and delicious!

  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1 Tbsp cane sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp hemp seeds (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk (dairy, almond, coconut)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

In a medium size bowl combine dry ingredients.  In another bowl beat egg, add milk and oil.  Add the wet ingredients to dry, stirring until combined.

Pour batter, about 1/3 cup for each pancake, into an oiled pan.  Ensure you do not make these pancakes too large, as they do not flip as easily as their wheat cousins.  Brown one side and flip to finish cooking.  Makes approximately 6 medium pancakes.

Top with your favourite topping:  blueberries, syrup or my favourite a combination of peanut butter and maple syrup.  Enjoy!
