The fluffiest pancake recipe! These oat milk pancakes are a breeze to make, and once you do, you'll never go back to store-bought mix. For a vegan alternative, you can replace the egg with flax seeds.
This recipe was adapted from Melissa Belanger over at Simply Whisked
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1 1/4 cup Two Bears oat milk
- 3 tbsps canola oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Whisk your dry ingredients into a bowl.
- Add Two Bears oat milk, canola oil, egg and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.
- Preheat a pan to medium heat, coat with butter or oil. Make sure the surface is covered, as this will help you flip your pancakes.
- Pour about ⅓ cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Wait until bubbles are visible throughout the pancake before flipping, about 1-2 minutes for each side.
- Garnish to taste, serve and enjoy!
Don’t skip the baking powder. I know the recipe seems like an excessive amount, but if you want them to be fluffy, especially without dairy, you need it. Use canola oil or other vegetable oils. This is my go-to substitute for melted butter because I always have it on hand. Keep the eggs. I know these pancakes could easily be made vegan, but the eggs do wonders for the texture of these pancakes. Keep your cooked pancakes warm in the oven while you’re making the rest.
We’ve used all different kinds of milk in the recipe – coconut milk (from the refrigerated section, not the can), almond milk, lactose free milk, oat milk and regular milk – and it turns out great every time but tastes best with oat milk. If you use sweetened Two Bears oat milk, adjust the recipe accordingly.
Toppings wise....the world is your oyster. No oysters, please, although....
Try any variation of fruits, nuts, oats, any buttery spread like peanut, almond or cashew butter. I like to use berries and maple syrup, but my husband enjoys the mix if sweet and savory, and will sometimes add slices of bacon....decidedly not for everyone, but hey, at least it's not oysters. You know I keep going back to the idea of oyster pancakes....
