I made this recipe up in an effort to eliminate white flour from our diet. After much fine-tuning, here is a recipe that works well. I am saving it here so that I won't lose it!
- 3 cups oat flour (I blend about five cups of old-fashioned oats in the Vita-mix and this makes exactly three cups of f)
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- cinnamon, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs, separated
- 2 1⁄2-2 3⁄4 cups milk (or buttermilk, or a mix of kefir and milk, or anything you feel like)
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil or 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons sugar or 3 tablespoons other artificial sweetener
- Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Mix in the milk, oil, vanilla and any sweetener you want ( I don't usually put any sweetener).
- For fluffier pancakes separate the eggs. Mix the egg yolks into the bowl and in a separate bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. Then fold the egg whites into the mix.
- If in a hurry, or you don't care, beat the whole eggs well ( I use the blender) and mix into the bowl.
- I find that the pancakes come out better if I let the mixture sit for a few minutes, allowing the oatmeal to absorb some of the moisture.
- If the mixture is too thick, add milk, a little at a time, until pancake batter consistency.
- Cook on hot griddle (about 300 F) turning to cook both sides.
These were so good. I have been trying to make a pancake that my kids would eat after switching to A wheat free sugar free diet. Instead of 3 cups of oats. I used about 1.5 cups of oats, 1c of rice flour, and 1/2 cup of almond meal to add some more fat. I also used a little less milk and about a half cup of Greek yogurt. Wedded some sugar free dark chocolate chips and my kids were thrilled. Thanks for posting,
