These 6 Ingredient Vegan Oat Pancakes are filling, delicious, and healthy. They’re free from sugar, oil, and gluten if you choose gluten-free oats.
Let’s be honest. Even though I’m an oatmeal lover, there are still days where it just doesn’t make the cut. On these days, I usually opt for pancakes.
I used to always go for buckwheat pancakes but as I’m out of buckwheat flour, I’ve had to try something else.
I decided to finally try out oat pancakes, and let me tell you; my love for oats just reached a whole new level. Oats are fantastic in pancakes.
I find that using grounded oats, makes the pancakes more filling. These pancakes also just happen to be sugar-free, oil-free and can easily be made gluten-free by using gluten-free oats.
They’re also super simple to make.
You start by blending the oats, which takes all of 30 seconds. Then you add applesauce, water, cinnamon, salt and baking powder and blend for another minute or so.
Cook the pancakes for a few minutes on each side before topping them with whatever your heart desires.
I went for fresh berries, sliced banana, chopped dark chocolate and a generous serving of maple syrup. Definitely, a delicious way to start the day, or end the day if you’re having it for dinner. Been there, done that.
Try these oat pancakes for a filling, delicious and healthy breakfast (or dinner!), or if you’re in the mood for something else, check out this delicious bowl of cacao oats or crunchy chocolate chili granola.

- 1 cup oats (110)
- 3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce (60 g)
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- Fresh berries
- Maple syrup
- Nut butter
- Dark chocolate chips
Blend the oats until it becomes like a flour-like consistency.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. If you aren't using a non-stick pan, you'll probably need to add a little oil to prevent it from sticking.
Once hot, spoon or pour out about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the batter onto the pan. Cook until the surface of pancakes have some bubbles and the edges are slightly dry (about 3 minutes). Carefully flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Continue cooking until all the batter has been used - about 6 pancakes.
Top your pancakes with whatever you want.
