If you haven’t noticed, Oat Flour Pancakes are all the rage! Especially, if you don’t have flour in the house or are looking for healthy pancakes, good old fashion oatmeal, blends up into oat flour in a jiffy!
These delicious oatmeal pancakes are also a great idea for a make-ahead breakfast for back-to-school because they can be made on the weekend and frozen.
Then just microwave them and top with fruit. Pancakes made with oat flour are so filling due to the fiber and protein that they have in them. They are sure to keep any tummy from rumbling until lunch!

What is Oat Flour?
Oat flour is simply just ground Old Fashioned oats. You can either buy Oat Flour already ground, or you simply can make your own by grinding up the oats in your food processor. It’s a popular flour these days because it’s a great gluten-free option for pancakes.
Or better yet just place the oats, along with all the other ingredients for these pancakes in a blender, and whirl it up. The blender will grind the oats for you and it will save you a step!
It will take at least a minute or so to blend the ingredients well enough so that the oats “turn” into flour and incorporate into the batter. It will be a thick pancake batter since the oats quickly absorb all the liquid. For a thinner pancake batter, just add more milk.
A Quick and Easy Way to Clean The Blender
You’ll notice this batter is really thick! It can be hard to clean your blender afterward, especially if you have left the batter sitting too long in the blender.
To make it easier, add hot water to the blender filling it about 3/4 of the way up, then add a few drops of dish soap and blend on high! It will easily loosen the gooey batter that was stuck to the blender and blade!
Using Natural Sugars
What I love about these healthy pancakes is the fact that they use natural sugars, all you need is a ripe banana and a full date. The riper your banana is, the sweeter your pancakes will be.
Just make sure your date is pitted before using it! Some dates come pitted and some do not. That pit is really hard and is not something you want to put in your blender!
These pancakes get their additional flavor from the ground cinnamon. It’s a really nice match against the earthy flavor of the oat flour. You could also use pumpkin pie spice as well for even more flavor.
Greasing The Griddle
I have found the best oil for greasing for pancakes, is coconut oil. It has a higher smoke point than butter and won’t burn as easily. You’ll also get better color on your pancakes with coconut oil too!
Top with a drizzle of honey, fresh blueberries, and sliced bananas! Or you can make a delicious apple raisin topping as seen in my Apple Cider Pancake recipe.
