Gluten Free Oatmeal Pancakes

I sometimes make pancakes for dinner on the weekends and that’s a lot of wheat for a gluten-free girl like me to handle. For a while now I have been trying to perfect an oatmeal-based, gluten free pancake, and last weekend I think I nailed it – at least, these hung together, and were good enough that I had to force myself to stop shoving them in my face as fast as possible. Hope you find them just as tasty!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Pancakes

3/4 cups quick-cook oats (plus maybe 1/4 cup more)
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp apple cider vinegar (optional)
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 Tablespoon maple syrup

1/4 cup tapioca
1/2 cup brown rice flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

Put 3/4 cup oatmeal and the 1 1/2 cups water in a large, microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds, stir, then 45 seconds more. Let sit for a few minutes, then add the vinegar (I’ve forgotten in the past, and it works fine, just less fluffy, so whatever), oil, and maple syrup; mixture should be fairly watery.

Add all the dry ingredients and stir to make a thick batter. It may seem runny, and if so, you can stir in another 1/4 cup of oats. But beware, the batter gets thicker and thicker the longer it sits, so you don’t want it to be too thick at the start.

Pour into a hot frying pan to make pancakes about 3 inches in diameter, and cook and flip as normal pancakes. Makes about 20 pancakes.

  1. I would try these at least once! Will share the recipe link with friends who have sensitivities. Assuming the oatmeal adds enough fibre to help one poop? ;-^ Thanks!

    1. Probably not a significant amount of fibre in the oatmeal, but if you are keen on that you can add a little ground flax – take a tablespoon or so and mix it with 3 tablespoons of warm water, let it sit for a few minutes, then mix it in.
