How to Make Dairy-Free/egg-Free Oatmeal Pancakes

by Kali Geek

Vegetarian friendly and can be made gluten free as well


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8-1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup dairy substitute
  • 1/4 neutral flavored oil
  • Dash vanilla extract
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    These have a different texture than buttermilk pancakes, More like a quick bread than fluffy. I also find they fill me up faster and I only need one. This recipe will make about 4 6" pancakes.

    Step 2

    To make these gluten free, use gluten free oats and baking powder. Replace flour with another cup of ground oats or favorite AP flour equivalent.

    Step 3

    These are vegetarian, but to accommodate a vegan, use vegan brown sugar or make your own with molasses and white sugar.

    Step 4

    Dump your oats in blender or food processor and pulse until they are ground.

    Step 5

    Should look like coarse flour.

    Step 6

    Toss in your other dry ingredients (including sugar) and pulse to mix.

    Step 7

    Get your wet ingredients ready. I'm using canola oil and vanilla soy milk.

    Step 8

    Dump everything in a bowl and stir gently to mix.

    Step 9

    There will be some lumps. Don't over mix.

    Step 10

    I poured the batter back in the measuring cup to make portioning easier.

    Step 11

    Cook in non-stick pan over medium heat. Unlike traditional pancakes, these will not bubble on the bottom. You will have to sneak a peek underneath to see when they are browned.

    Step 12

    Looking good! Keep warm on baking sheet in oven until ready to serve. They are great on their own, but I wouldn't say no to some maple syrup or fruit on top.
