Whenever I think of a deliciously fluffy stack of pancakes, I immediately begin to drool. There's so many amazing recipes for pancakes out there, and of course, on my blog! We've got lemon poppy seed pancakes, pumpkin pancakes, and a homemade paleo pancake version that is fantastic. However, my recipe for oatmeal protein pancakes is going to be your new bestie, especially because they're made in just one appliance: the blender. Yep, these are blender pancakes, and I am kind of obsessed.
This recipe for oatmeal pancakes is instantly going to a favorite of yours, as it is mine. One of the reasons for this is because they're easy to prep, easy to make, and if you make too many you can freeze them! I also really appreciate the use of just one appliance and one pan for this recipe. Less mess to clean after devouring an entire stack of these. Plus, the protein from the oatmeal makes it even more delicious and nutritious.
I don't typically use oat flour in any of my recipes, but I always have oats on hand for breakfast. Using oats instead of oat flour is more cost effective, and also keeps me from running to the store for just one ingredient. I like to have a variety of recipes on hand, so having an oatmeal-based pancake recipe is exactly what I was after. Blending the oats instead of using the flour also gives the pancakes a thicker, fluffier texture and I am here for it.
Oats are known for carrying more grams of protein per serving, which makes them a great choice for breakfast! We used about two cups (160 grams) of oats in this recipe, and with one half a cup of oats weighing in at 5 grams of protein, we've actually quadrupled the amount of protein in these pancakes! Talk about a hearty, healthy, filling brekkie! Protein is something I am always chasing in my eating lifestyle, so if I can make pancakes into something healthier for me and my readers, then let's do it.
As I've said earlier, this recipe is great for many reasons, one being that there's minimal equipment or kitchen appliances involved. Here's what you'll need to whip up a batch of the fabulous flapjacks:
This recipe is based on very simple ingredients, most of which you'll have in your fridge or in your cabinets.
You'll spend a few minutes blending the ingredients together and then a few more minutes frying the flapjacks, but in all you'll be in food paradise in just about 20-30 minutes.
Absolutely! Be sure to grab gluten free oats and stick with almond milk for the milk.
I liked making them a little on the larger side, approximately 4-5" in diameter, but you can easily make them smaller by using a cookie scoop!
You can add in anything you'd like such as chocolate chips, blueberries, bananas, sprinkles, or top with different ingredients like a fig jam or your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread.
