Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes
Hearty and protein-packed Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes are made with a short list of gluten and egg-free ingredients and no bananas. Guaranteed to fill you up!
Servings: 8 pancakes
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoon almond milk or milk of choice
- 2 tablespoon coconut oil melted and cooled to room temperature
- 2 flax eggs
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour regular or gluten free
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoon chocolate chips divided
Stir the oats and milk together in a large bowl, then let them sit for 10 minutes which will create an oatmeal-like consistency. While you're waiting, melt the coconut oil and the flax eggs. To make flax eggs: stir 2 tablespoon flaxseed meal and 5 tablespoon water together and let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes.
Next, add the coconut oil, flax eggs and maple syrup to the bowl with the oats and stir to combine.
Last, add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt to that same bowl and stir to combine.
Heat a greased griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat, then use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the griddle. Cook the pancakes for 3 minutes on the first side, then sprinkle each pancake with a few chocolate chips, flip them over and cook for an additional 1 minute until the pancakes are set.
Top the pancakes with your favorite vegan yogurt and/or a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!
