Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup oat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Instructions

  • Add the coconut oil, eggs, and maple syrup to the oats, and stir to combine. Add oat flour, baking powder, and cinnamon and stir until just combined; do not over mix.  Gently fold in pecans.

  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and grease with some extra coconut oil (or whatever you prefer).  Scoop 1/4 cup of batter and drop into the pan to make small sized pancakes  (I like to cook 3-4 at a time).

  • Cook until you see tiny bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes and the bottoms are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.  Flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is golden-brown, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  • Transfer pancakes to a warm oven or late and repeat until you have used all the batter. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Want to make this recipe 100% plant-based and vegan? Swap in one flax or chia egg in place of the eggs.
  • Have some fun with the stir-ins! Try mini chocolate chips, walnuts, diced apples and pears, or blueberries.  Make it your own.
  • Want to make this recipe for meal prep? Easy-peasy! Simply store the pancakes in an airtight container and pop them in the fridge for up to five days.  You can also freeze them for up to 3 months.
