Oats and banana pancakes

Good morning…today I got up with PANCAKES on my mind..actually, if the truth be told.. I went to bed with pancakes on my mind… I even dreamed about pancakes last night..so the first thing this morning, I was in the kitchen developing a plant based/Vegan pancake recipe… it took a few trial and errors…in the land of pancake making.. but I finally got it!
I took two cups of Oats (not instant) and ground them into oat flour…it was easy. Peasy…measure two cups of oats and put in blender or food processor ( I used a magic bullet) and taaadaaa.. oat flour…a matter of seconds.
Make sure you ground it super fine.. I shook mine up a little..to make sure it was getting everything incorporated.pancakes54

These turned out to be light and airy pancakes..just like I wanted.. And they were soooo good.. I didn’t need any syrup! You could use maple syrup or honey..or aven a fresh berry compote for the topping…but I picked mine up and ate them.. they were that good!!

I suggest you use a griddle to make these.. they can be a little hard to flip in a pan. I changed in the middle of making mine , from pan to griddle…it was a lot easisier…

I hope you like them as much as I did… I think the banana in the batter gives it a little more “punch”! Give them a try!
Chow!

    You said half a container of almond milk-what size is that? Surely not a half of a half gallon?
