I finally found gluten free oats, and they were around 100 meters away from my home in my local supermarket.. shame on my searching skills. But I love the fact that there is so much available in the supermarket now a days! So what to do with oats? Pancakes of course.. because it is Sunday! Inspired by the queen of pancakes @thrivingonplants I adjusted her recipe and also made it gluten free. These pancakes are very easy to make and only contain oats, bananas and plant based milk. Oats are a great source of fiber and of course carbs. Don’t be afraid, carbs do not make you fat, they make your body strong, feel nourished and happy. Oats are high in Vitamin B which is important for a healthy metabolism, it is a great source of energy and one cup of oats contains 8 milligram of iron which is 36% of the daily recommended amount! So you could say these pancakes are a great start of the day.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup oats (gluten-free if needed), ground to flour
- 1 cup mixed rice/coconut milk (Coconut Dream) (or any other plant based milk)
- 1 cup water
- Optional: ½ tsp cinnamon, coconut sugar
- Put the oats in the blender and pulse until ground into flour.
- Then add the liquids and banana and blend until its all mixed and there are no chunks of bananas.
- I cook them in a little coconut oil (about ½ tsp per batch). To use as little as possible take the a tiny bit of coconut oil and rub it onto the pan. Then put the pan on the stove.
- These pancakes are small and each is baked for around 5 minutes (on medium low heat). Flipped when you can see that the pancakes start to form 'air bubbles'.
