If you, or someone in your family, can’t have wheat, pancakes may seem like a food that’s off limits. But that’s not true! These wheat-free pancakes are made without flour, using ground oats instead. That means they’re also gluten-free, as long as you use oats labeled gluten-free. (Although oats should be gluten free, they can be exposed to gluten during growing and/or processing.) This recipe is also dairy free because I’ve used almond milk.
A flour-free, dairy-free pancake may not sound good if you’re a traditional pancake lover, but I challenge you to try these. They really are good and could even be served for dessert. Top with maple syrup, vanilla Greek yogurt, or cinnamon applesauce.
Wheat-Free Apple-Cinnamon Pancakes
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 small apple, peeled and shredded (about 1/2 cup, loosely packed)
Place oatmeal and walnuts in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Put mixture into a medium bowl and add remaining ingredients. Note: The batter will be runny at first but will thicken as it sits. Pour batter onto a hot griddle and cook until light brown on both sides.
