These Healthy Pancakes have been a family favorite for years now. I continue to tweak them a little here and there but overall they are a tried and true classic that just never gets old. I mean let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to eat something warm and buttery all the time and it still be healthy since they are made from oats and unsweetened apple sauce 🙋🏽♀️.
But the biggest fan of these healthy pancakes has got to be our 4 year old. You ask him any day of the week what he wants for breakfast and it’s either pancakes or oatmeal. I guess it’s safe to say we like oats a lot around here!
I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
- 2 cups oat flour I just blend up old fashioned oats in my ninja bullet
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 Tbsp melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 ⅓ cup Unsweetened almond milk
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon you can totally omit this if you prefer
- add-ins: nuts, blueberries, chocolate chips
- Melt butter in large bowl.
- Then add milk, applesauce, honey, vanilla and eggs. Whisk together until fully incorporated.
- In same bowl dump in the oat flour.
- On top of oat flour sprinkle the cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Whisk all ingredients together.
- KEY TIP: Do not mix until fully smooth. Leaving batter semi-lumpy creates fluffier pancakes.
- KEY TIP #2: ALWAYS let batter rest for 10 mins prior to cooking!
- Once batter has rested, spoon batter onto warmed and buttered griddle.
- ** At this time is when you could also add the mix-ins. We have several that we love including blueberries, pecans, or cacao chips, I always add the mix-ins on the top of the pancake batter that is still uncooked once spooned onto griddle. Then once bottom is cooked just flip and the other side will cook with the mix-ins.
- Serve hot with Maple Syrup!
