2) Gluten-Free Recipe

Gluten free Oatmeal pancakes with better syrup and strawberries

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • ¾ cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup of nonfat milk
  • 2 cups of old-fashioned oats
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of kosher salt
  • ½ cup of extras of your choice (we like chocolate chips and blueberries)

Instructions

  1. Measure the oil, Greek yogurt, milk, 1¼ cups of oats, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt into a blender
  2. Blend until the batter is smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender as needed
  3. Continue blending until you don’t see any remaining bits of oats
  4. Turn off the blender motor, then stir the remaining ¾ cup of oats and any desired extras directly into the blender container
  5. Do not blend again
  6. Let the batter sit while you preheat a skillet or griddle over medium-low heat (this is a perfect time to prep any toppings)
  7. Lightly butter or oil the pan to avoid sticking
  8. Once the skillet is hot, measure ¼ cup of batter onto the cooking surface
  9. Let cook gently for 3 to 4 minutes on the first side, until the pancakes look dry at the edges and small bubbles form on top
  10. Gently flip, then cook on the other side for 1 to 2 minutes (they should look golden on both sides)
  11. Repeat with the remaining batter
  12. Serve hot, with desired toppings

If you’re having trouble keeping these oatmeal pancakes warm while you’re cooking all the batter, place an oven rack in the center position and set the temperature to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

When one batch is done, place those pancakes on a cookie sheet in the oven until you’re ready to serve.
