oatmeal berry pancakes

This morning I had a pigeon visitation. I was sitting at my desk, oil pulling and planning my day, when out of nowhere this huge (and honestly, beautiful) bird plopped herself on my windowsill and started pecking at my planter.

I don’t think I had ever seen a pigeon so close up, and the truth is, I was pretty mesmerized by the experience. She stayed there for at least a minute and a half, during which time she stared at me, and I at her, and I was able to see the complexity of her tail feathers and the beautiful white and electric fuchsia on her neck.

Pigeons get a bad rap — and certainly unfairly so. They are perhaps one of the most loathed birds, and yet upon closer look, they’re intricate and majestic.

Anyway, I took this morning pigeon visit as a sign. A sign to make sure I take a closer look at things… be they birds or situations, people or, even, thoughts.

So that was my deep and transformative morning with a pigeon.

Of course another way to have a transformative morning is to try our vegan, wholesome oatmeal pancakes. (Slightly less fauna, but certainly flora-filled.)

The Life-Changing Magic of Pancaking It Up

First off, let’s talk oatmeal.

Unless you’re currently keto-ing or listening to Mark Hyman (don’t), you know that oatmeal is one of the best fiber-packed brekkies out there. Add in some berries, flax, and chia, and you’ve got yourself a veritable power porridge.

Though, as much as I love oatmeal, let’s be honest… it’s not pancakes. It is a truth almost universally acknowledged that pancakes are heaven. That is… until you’re lying on the floor in a refined carb food coma cursing life and its wicked temptations.

*whimpers*

“But… wait…” I mused to myself one day, scratching my noggin. “What if we just put all the oatmeal ingredients into a pancake?”

A few recipe experimentations later, I cried out “Eureka!” and this pancake recipe was born. After shamelessly feeding Chloe and other hungry friends of mine these creations to rave reviews, I knew it was time to share them with you, dear readers.

What can I say? Sometimes a girl just wants the impossible… a healthy pancake.

These whole food, fiber-packed, oil-free vegan flapjacks will fill you up without slowing you down… (as long as you resist the temptation to eat, like, ten.)

Oatmeal Berry Pancakes

These majorly fluffy vegan pancakes may change your life -- they have ours. Make sure to get a high quality non-stick pan, okay?

Prep time

15 min.

Cook time

30 min.

Total time

45 min.

Ingredients

Makes about 20 medium-sized, thick and fluffy pancakes.

  • 1 1/2 cups blended up oats
  • 1 1/2 cups whole spelt flour, or flour of choice
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • a pinch of pink/sea salt if you wish
  • 5 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon (or thereabouts) cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • Mixed berries (or blueberries or chocolate chips, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup-ish of oats
Instructions
  1. First mix up your dry ingredients (except the whole oats that you save to add at the end.)
  2. Then add your wet ingredients and mix.
  3. Add in your 1/2 cup, or thereabouts, of whole oats. Mix well, but don’t over mix.
  4. Let batter sit for 5 minutes, making to sure to turn on your non-stick skillet at this point.
  5. After 5 minutes, assess the thickness of the batter. It should be thick, but not TOO thick. If it’s too thick then add a bit of non-dairy milk.
  6. Scoop your batter onto your non-stick skillet and then add some delish berries. Once the sides start to dry a bit, and it looks golden brown underneath, flip that baby!
  7. If you’d like to eat together with your dining companions, we suggest you turn your oven on at low heat, and store the pancakes in there while you’re making the rest of them.
  8. Serve with REAL maple syrup, or peanut butter, or whatever floats your boat. These also make excellent crumpet-like things for afternoon tea with a bit of chia jam.
Notes & Tips

** If you don’t have a non-stick skillet, you might have to add oil or vegan butter to the pan.

** I recommend you enjoy these delicious hot cakes with some Percy Faith tunes. Trust me… it just perfectly completes the experience.
