Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cup oat milk or other milk
  • ½ cup oatmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup ground flax seeds
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • fresh berries and maple (or agave) syrup for servings

Instructions

  • In a small dish, mix together the oat milk and oats, and set aside (the oats will start to soften as we work on the rest).
  • In a separate dish, whisk the eggs and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose and whole wheat flour, chia seeds, flax seeds, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix everything together well.
  • To that, add the milk/oat mixture, eggs, and coconut oil. Whisk the batter gently until no lumps remain.
  • Heat up a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Using a ½ cup as a measure, scoop the batter onto the skillet.
  • In about 1-2 minutes, you should see bubbles appear. Flip the pancake over and fry for another minute. Repeat this step with the remaining batter. You should have about 6 pancakes.

Notes

HOW TO STORE THESE PANCAKES

Because these pancakes use perishable ingredients, it’s best to store them in the refrigerator. They should stay fresh in an airtight container or ziplock bag for up to 5 days.

CAN I FREEZE THEM?

Yes, you can! These Healthier Pancakes can freeze very well. Just separate each one with a layer of wax or parchment paper and slip them into a ziplock freezer bag. They can stay fresh in the freezer for up to 2 months.
When you are ready to reheat them, just take out the ones you want and allow them to defrost in the refrigerator overnight. You can either warm them in the microwave or in a skillet on the stove top. The skillet will give you a crisper outside though.
