Healthy and yummy?  No way.

Yes way.  I have tried multiple homemade-from-scratch pancake recipes before this one, and this is the best yet.  If you follow the steps below, you will have yourself with some bomb* gluten-free, oil-free, plant-based pancakes.

*(my generation’s word to replace anything meaning ‘beyond amazing’, ‘awesome’, or ‘really delicious’— and in my context, I’m referring to all 3 definitions)


3 cups gluten-free oat flour*

2 cups almond milk*

2 bananas*

Things you can add (all optional based on preference)


Chocolate chips

Chia seeds (I added 3/4 cup to my recipe and it turned out great)

Homemade berry sauce

1/4 cup blueberries

1/4 cup blackberries

1/4 cup maple syrup






  1. Blend, or manually mix (in a bowl) until a batter is formed
  2. Heat non-stick pan and pour pancake mix on to pan- flip as needed


Berry sauce:  

  1. Blend in blender and top pancakes



*Regular oat flour is fine; just know that your pancakes won’t be gluten-free

*Soy milk, hemp milk, etc should have similar effect and taste as almond milk, however I’ve never tried it

*Preferably ripe/spotty bananas


This recipe makes a good amount.  Depending on how big you make them depends on how many you get; my batter made 14.  The ones I didn’t eat right away I left out to cool, then put them in a container and left them on the counter.  Refrigerate the berry sauce (not necessary, but great for 2nd’s)! I heated up the pancakes in the microwave for lunch and the cold berry sauce tasted delicious on the warm pancakes!

It’s gets better… I had some leftover the next morning, so I ate the rest for breakfast, but instead of the berry sauce, I just added regular syrup and some sliced strawberries, yum!



Please feel free to comment if you try out this recipe or have any secrets on how to make them even tastier!
