Fluffy Oatmeal Pancakes
The tastiest and juiciest fluffy little fat pancakes that I ever ate also happen to be vegan, gluten-free and a product of a complete improvisation. These oatmeal and banana pancakes are really versatile and delicious. They are also super quick and easy to make – you will only need simple ingredients and a blender.
These fluffy oatmeal pancakes are made from only a couple of ingredients that you are likely to have in the house, including oats and bananas. Also, the recipe is so simple that you can easily make them on a daily basis. Since they don’t contain any processed ingredients, oils or added sugars, they can be a perfect nutritious breakfast.
Making these fluffy gluten-free oatmeal pancakes can also be a good way to use up all those over-ripe bananas that have been hanging around the kitchen for a bit too long. The bananas will add just enough natural sweetness, bind the mixture well and keep the pancakes perfectly juicy.
A good substitute for breakfast oats
Are there any other plant-eaters out there that are not really fans of oatmeal for breakfast? I am sure that I am not the only one. Well, even in case that you just got bored with the plain old oatmeal, these fluffy oatmeal and banana pancakes can be a fresh new way to consume oats. Kids will love them too!
Ingredients for the oatmeal and banana pancakes
To make these delicious and fluffy oatmeal pancakes, you will need:
- oatmeal (rolled oats)
- ripe bananas (the riper they are, the sweeter your pancakes will be)
- fine rice flour (it will help you create a super soft texture, but if you don’t have it, you can just substitute it with oats)
- water or plant milk
- bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
- apple cider vinegar
Now, all you need to do is blend these ingredients in a blender to combine. If you don’t have a blender, you can grind the oats in a coffee grinder, smash the bananas with a fork and combine everything using a fork or a whisk.
The only “catch” will be not to let vinegar and baking soda react before you mix everything. I avoid this by blending all the ingredients except from baking soda first, then adding the baking soda and blending again. In case you are using baking powder instead of baking soda, you should leave out the vinegar (since baking powders already contain an acidic component).
Fluffy Oatmeal Pancakes
These fluffy vegan oatmeal and banana pancakes are super quick and easy to make - all you need is a blender and a couple of simple, healthy ingredients. The pancakes are delicious and can be a great breakfast or a dessert.
- 2 large (over)ripe bananas, or 3 smaller ones
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup fine rice flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 pinch of cinnamon
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 pinch of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- Blend all the ingredients except baking soda into a smooth batter.
- Add the baking soda and blend to combine.
- Pour the pancake batter onto a hot pan in a thick layer and bake over a low heat for two minutes on each side.
- Serve with fresh fruits, nut butter and maple or date syrup.
* The reason for adding baking soda last is to prevent it from reacting with vinegar while the batter is still not blended. We need them to react inside of the batter, making it fluffy.
* In case you chose to use baking powder instead of baking soda, you can leave out the vinegar in the recipe; baking powder already has an acidic ingredient that will react with the alkaline soda powder in it as soon as you mix it with liquid.
* Rice flour is a part of this recipe to make the pancakes even softer and fluffier. If you don't have it, you can just replace it with oatmeal, or even a 50:50 combination of oatmeal and some starch.
* If you have a non-stick pan, it will be perfect for baking these pancakes without any oil; otherwise, a few drops of coconut oil will do the trick.
* I served them with strawberries, goji berries and hemp seeds in date syrup and it was delicious, i absolutely recommend it.
* Oats are naturally gluten-free, but can get "contaminated" if they are processed in the same factory that produces wheat; this is not a big deal if you are simply gluten-intolerant, but can present a problem for people with Coeliac disease. If you need a 100% GF version for health reasons, make sure to get certified gluten-free oats.
Palačinke od zobenih pahuljica
Najukusnije i najsočnije male debele palačinke koje sam ikad jela: veganske, bez glutena i plod potpune improvizacije.
- 2 velike (pre)zrele banane, ili 3 male
- 1 šalica zobenih pahuljica
- 1/2 šalice rižinog brašna
- 1/2 šalice vode
- prstohvat cimeta
- prstohvat soli
- prstohvat sode bikarbone
- Sve sastojke izblendajte u blenderu u glatku smjesu.
- Izlijevajte smjesu na zagrijanu tavu u debelom sloju i pecite (po mogućnosti bez ulja, ili na sasvim malo kokosovog) na laganoj vatri, 1-2 minute sa svake strane.
- Poslužite sa svježim voćem, maslacem od orašida i(li) sirupom od datulja. Ja sam ih prelila narezanim jagodama, goji bobicama i konopljinim sjemenkama u datuljinom sirupu (i jako preporučam da napravite našto slično jer je odlično!).
