Fluffy Oat Flour Pancakes
These easy oat flour pancakes are tender and fluffy, and full of the goodness of whole oats.
Servings 8 pancakes
- 2 cups oat flour *see note
- 1 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter melted and cooled
- 2 eggs whites and yolks separated
In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Make a well in the centre of the oat flour mixture and pour in the milk, egg yolks, and melted butter. Stir to combine.
In a separate glass, metal or ceramic bowl*, whisk together the egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the batter.
Lightly grease a nonstick pan or griddle over medium low heat and pour about 1/4-1/3 cup of batter in to the pan. Spread the batter to form a 4 inch pancake. Two at a time should fit in a 12-inch skillet.
Cook the pancakes until golden, bubbles have appeared on the surface and the edges are beginning to set (about 2 minutes). Flip and cook until cooked through and brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining batter.
*You can purchase oat flour or make it yourself by pulsing about 3 cups of rolled oats in a food processor to a fine powder.
*Use a glass, metal or ceramic bowl to beat egg whites, never plastic. Grease gets stuck in the scratches of plastic bowls and prevent the whites from getting foamy.
