Cinnamon Oat Pancakes

Recipe by Tina Gravalos






Serves 03

Oat flour and coconut flour are great alternatives for using in pancakes. They still have the density of a traditional pancake but are gluten-free and packed with fibre for supporting digestion, heart health, detoxification, etc.


  1. 1

    In a blender or food processor, blend the oats until a flour forms. It doesn’t have to be completely smooth. Pieces of oats give the pancakes a nice texture.

  2. 2

    In a large bowl, add the blended oats, coconut flour, cinnamon, coconut sugar, sea salt and baking powder. Mix to combine.

  3. 3

    In a small bowl, add the egg and whisk. Add the almond milk and vanilla extract and mix to combine.

  4. 4

    Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix to combine.

  5. 5

    The batter will be like a cake batter but a little bit thicker because of the oats. If you need to add more liquid, you can do so.

  6. 6

    Over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to a large frying pan (you might need to add more as you go). Once heated, start your first pancake by pouring a ¼ cup of the batter into the pan (using a measuring cup helps). You will need to spread the batter out to get your desired size (aim for approx. ½ inch thickness).

  7. 7

    Cook each pancake for 1.5-2 minutes per side, depending on your pan. Keep an eye out for any bubbles or golden brown edges, that will be a sign to flip! You can do 1 or 2 pancakes at a time.

  8. 8

    Serve with toppings like nut butter, coconut butter, maple syrup, nuts and seeds, grass-fed butter, berries, coconut whip.

  9. 9

    You can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can even freeze them and then pop them in the toaster.
