Oat Flour Pancakes

These pancakes make me so happy! They’re something I can feel great about serving to my family, because it’s literally oatmeal. Even though they pack in all of the healthy benefits of oatmeal, they taste like a treat. The cinnamon mixed with the plant based buttermilk is just a next level flavor combination.

Oat flour has been one of my favorite alternative flours to work with for a long time. It’s so affordable, and it’s a super versatile flour because it has pretty great binding power that other gluten free flours don’t have. I also love that I never have to worry about running out of it because I’ve always got oats in my pantry, and it’s so easy to make at home in your blender. 

Plus, all that amazing binding power means we don’t have to use eggs in these pancakes, which makes this recipe super pantry friendly!

Vegan Oat Flour Pancakes

We all know that the secret to great pancakes is buttermilk. Since these are vegan pancakes, we’re going to make our own simple vegan buttermilk by combining apple cider vinegar with almond milk and allowing that to curdle for 5 minutes.

This is an important step because some of the acid in the vinegar reacts with the baking soda to give the pancakes more rise (in other words, it makes your pancakes nice and fluffy).

Gluten Free Oat Flour

Oats are an ingredient that are frequently cross-contaminated with gluten. So, if you’re celiac or making this recipe for someone with a gluten intolerance, it’s so important to use certified gluten free oats.

Oat Flour Pancakes Recipe

Vegan oat flour pancakes are the perfect Saturday morning breakfast! You can feel great about serving this healthy kid-approved recipe to your family.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (250 ml)
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats (150 grams, certified gluten free if necessary)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (certified gluten free if necessary)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Coconut oil (to grease the pan)


  1. Start by making the vegan buttermilk by whisking together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Let that rest for 5 - 10 minutes, or until it thickens and curdles.
  2. Blend the oats into a fine flour.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, baking soda, and fine sea salt.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vegan buttermilk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir to combine. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes while your pan heats up.
  6. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add a little bit of oil to the pan, and add the batter in 2 Tablespoon dollops. Cook for about 3 minutes on the first side, or until you see little bubbles forming on the top of the pancake. Flip and cook for another 90 seconds, or until the pancakes are cooked through.


I don’t recommend doubling this recipe because that will leave the extra batter to rest for too long. As oat flour batters rest, they thicken, which will make this batter very thick and produce gummy pancakes.
