My family loves pancakes. I try to incorporate whole grains into our diets and oats are a great choice. They are rich in iron, fiber, minerals, etc. So, to full my kids with a healthy breakfast that they will also love, I make pancakes with oats. I intentionally bought electrical griddle to make my kids pancakes in the morning for breakfast. It is healthier as I don’t have to fry them over the oven. Throughout the years, I have been experimenting with different types of pancakes. This specific recipe uses honey for sweetener and gluten free organic oat flour. We don’t put any other topping to sweeten the pancakes. We sometimes use fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries) for topping, however, most of the time we just eat the pancakes plain with yogurt. The batch is for 30 small pancakes which my family of 4 eats in one sitting.
I buy from the store gluten free organic oats and I grind them myself. I use the oat flour for different purposes one of which is to make pancakes. I also like grinding all sorts of seeds to add to the dough. You can substitute the milk with other type of milk if you are dairy intolerant such as almond or coconut. Whole grains are integral part of our daily diets and eating oats (a whole grain) is very healthy. Especially if you eat it in the morning it keeps you full for longer and gets your metabolism going. Fiber is also important to eat in the morning if you are looking to lose weight.
We use ground seeds in many of our recipes, such as banana bread, pumpkin puff pastry dessert, pumpkin bread, etc. Seeds are very nutritious. For example, they are a great source of healthy fats (your brain and heart will love you), antioxidants (your gut and immune system will appreciate it), protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. I almost always use them in batters, toppings for desserts and salads, etc.

Cook pancakes on griddle
- Cook the pancakes on the griddle (around 375 degrees) until done
- After about 20-30 min into cooking the pancakes on the griddle, add 1/2 cup milk and mix well. The oats absorb the liquid as time goes by which makes cooking the pancakes harder unless you add some more liquid (milk)
