Oatmeal pancake recipe – fluffy gluten free pancake recipe made with 100% oat flour. These oat pancakes are not only quick and easy to make but also taste delicious & are healthy. These make an amazing breakfast for the entire family. They can also be served as a finger food to toddlers. Serve them with your favorite topping!
These pancakes come out fluffy with a non-sticky texture inside. So it is hard for anyone to know these have been made with oats. I don’t make pancakes often but whenever I do I make these as they are healthier.
For the topping you can use maple syrup, honey, chocolate syrup or fruit syrup. We usually go with the chocolate sauce as I always stock the homemade one. I have also shared the recipe of the chocolate syrup at the end of this post.
To make the oat flour, just process or blend rolled oats or instant oats until you get a fine powder.
For variations, you can also swap in some cocoa for oat flour. You can also add some chocolate chips to make choco chip pancakes.
These are best served hot, straight from the pan.

If you are a beginner or new to Indian cooking, I highly suggest you to check the supporting step by step photos for best results. Step by step photos with description available below after the recipe card.
1. Add little over 1 ½ cup oats to a blender. You can use any kind of oats. I used organic instant oats.
2. Powder them as finely as possible.
3. Measure 1 ½ cups oats flour, cinnamon (optional),baking powder and salt.
4. Mix everything well.
5. Add eggs, melted butter, milk and sugar to a bowl. Any milk can be used. I accidentally added soft butter here. But please note that for better texture, butter has to be melted and then added. Also do not use cold milk. Butter will clump up together when added to cold milk.
6. Whisk everything well.
7. Add the flour to this.
8. Mix just until well combined. The batter is of a thick pouring consistency.
