Oatmeal pancakes (vegan, low sugar & dairy free)
One day I was craving vegan pancakes but I was sick of using gluten-free flour to make them and I wanted to avoid a lot of starch. I google different gluten-free vegan recipes and still couldn’t find a recipe that appealed to me.
Instead, I decided to be like a scientist in the kitchen. I played around with different recipes, I mean a lot of banana’s, different types of gluten-free flours together like almond meal, tiger nut and coconut flour. They all tasted great but the consistency was a little off. Then I thought to myself, what about oats? They are not fully gluten-free containing avenin (gluten called protein fraction) but it has far less gluten than wheat flours. You can find gluten-free oats such as Bob Mill’s version in the health section but that’s about all I know.
I made my own oat flour by placing them in a food processor and played with a lot of versions. As oats are so dense it wasn’t easy to get it right then finally I got it!
I played around with different dairy-free milk’s and realised that almond milk worked the best. Other kinds of milk make the consistency a little more wetter, but you can still use them. Maybe try putting in a bit at a time.
Anyway, hope you all enjoy! Share results in the comments and any modifications.
