Oat Flour Pancakes (Old-Fashioned)

Oat Flour Pancakes

I have about 40 pounds oat groats in my food storage right now that I need to start implementing more in my recipes because I want to eat what I store. I’ve used oats in the past by rolling oat groats into rolled oats with my friends Marga Oat Roller, I have also used oat flour sparingly in a few recipes. I decided to try something with all oat flour and my little girl has been a pancake eating monster lately so here goes another pancake recipe.

To make oat flour it is best to use a grain mill and grind it from oat groats or steel cut oats, rolled oats from the store have usually lost much nutritional value and they tend to get stuck going into electric grain mills. I like to grind my oats on a setting just between Pastry and Bread on my WonderMill grain mill.

This oat pancake recipe would be great for adding fruit to or topping with a fruit compote, or just plain syrup. Oat flour pancakes are a great alternative for those of you who are gluten-intolerant and some people who need to be gluten-free. I have heard some people that many people who have celiac disease can sometimes have issues with oats also. Those with celiac will also want to make sure that there oats are certified gluten-free as some oats are harvested with the same equipment that harvests wheat.

WW Buttermilk Oat Pancakes

As you can tell from my last post, I have been into using my oat groats lately. Well not only do oats groats make great rolled oats but they also make a tasty oat flour when milled in a grain mill. Oat flour is much fluffier that any other flour I have used before in the past and it usually takes more flour in a recipe when you are using oat flour. It is good to use variety in the grains you use everyday so they don’t get blah tasting and you get the nutritional benefits that each grain offers.

When ever I use flours that have no gluten, like oat flour, I always mix it with another flour that does have gluten like whole wheat. I took the 100% Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancake Recipe from twopeasandtheirpod.com, that I love so much, and adjusted it to have the wonderful taste of oat flour. I have adjusted the recipe several times and here is the one that gives best results.

These oat flour pancakes are full of flavor that you just can’t get from any other flour but oat flour. I how you enjoy this recipe, my family does. I also always use powdered buttermilk instead of regular buttermilk because I can store it for more than 2 years and it is convenient, the brand I use is Saco Powdered Buttermilk which is found in most grocery stores.
