Cinnamon Oat Pancakes

Let’s start this week off with pancakes, shall we? I think it’s the only right thing to do, pancakes will always make a Monday better.

Any time I make breakfast, this is always the first thing Kenny asks for. These pancakes have been both of our favorite breakfast for quite some time now. They are thick and fluffy, soft and chewy, and have a subtle cinnamon flavor running through them. I love that they are light enough to not weigh you down if you eat a few, yet filling and satisfying.

This is a pretty basic pancake recipe, made with only oat flour. It is super simple, and I think once you have experienced these soft, syrup-soaked bites of goodness, you will not want to go back to any other kind of pancake. But I guess I’m a little bias.

TOPPINGS! I like to get crazy with the toppings to mix up the flavors a bit. Suggestions? Here goes. Syrup (duh), butter (duh), blueberries, strawberries, bananas, peanut butter, your favorite jam or jelly, ground flax, honey, yogurt. I mean, I could go on all day. I love toppings.

Like I said, pancakes make Mondays better. So make yourself some pancakes at some point today, grab a cup of coffee and a good book, and all will be well with the world.

Cinnamon Oat Pancakes

Yield: Makes 8 (4-inch) pancakes


  • 2 cups oat flour (I grind up my GF oats in a coffee grinder)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk


  1. Preheat a large skillet to medium-low heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk and vanilla together. Stir in the oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and sugar until smooth and evenly combined.
  3. Melt a tbsp of butter onto skillet (or spray with cooking spray), using a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter and gently pour it onto the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until cooked through. Continue for the rest of the batter.
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings!


  1. These look amazing and so good!! I love how fluffy they are. Do you think I could add a banana to the mixture to make banana pancakes?

    Definitely on the menu for Saturday breakfast tomorrow 🙂
