Flourless oat and blueberry pancakes

    40 min

    I was looking for a hearty flourless pancake recipe that didn't require buying special ingredients and that tasted great. In all my searching, I couldn't find one so I made up my own.

    Serves: 4 

    • 160g porridge oats
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 5 tablespoons honey
    • 4 egg whites
    • 4 tablespoons milk
    • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Combine oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Set aside. Mix honey, egg whites, milk, coconut oil and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Stir the oat mixture into the egg mixture and mix well.
    2. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the pan and top with blueberries. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

    These pancakes do NOT bubble like regular pancakes. They are a very hearty, thick pancake. You also HAVE to add the blueberries/fruit BEFORE you cook them. I put 1/4 of the batter on a lightly greased pan (cooking spray) and spread it out until it's about 1/4 inch thick. It will not spread on it's own like a regular pancake. My husband can eat two maybe three. That's how filling they are. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!  -  05 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow! These were great! Instead of using the oats as-is I ground them in the blender. It was delicious! To try it this way double the amount of oats used(I halved the recipe so I ground 2 cups) and just set your blender or food processor on a high speed and grind for about 1 minute and voila! I also threw in a handful of sliced strawberries. Great recipe! Thanks HJWilson!  -  08 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The best pancakes ever!! I ground up the oats and made it more flourlike. I also ground up a handful of frozen fruit. Will definitely be making this again!  -  19 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
