Chocolate Oat Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods. Who doesn’t like cake for breakfast? These are protein packed pancakes, using fresh ground oats ( with a small amount of all purpose flour) and olive oil instead of butter, making them a little healthier (although i’m not a doctor).

Now, I served these with just a little powdered sugar and fresh fruit with maple syrup, however these would be amazing with melted chocolate, chocolate chips and even Biscoff.

Making Oat Flour

Oats have more nutrients and protein than AP flour, which makes these pancakes a whole lot better for you.

Making Oat flour is super easy. All you do is place the oats into a food processor or good blender and pulse/blend until it gets to a flour texture. If you don’t wish to make your own, its easily accessible now in your larger supermarkets in the baking or flour sections.

If you don’t want to mix in AP flour you can double up on the Oat flour. I like to use a little AP flour for smoothness and to bind the batter more but it’s optional.

Make it GF or Vegan

As mentioned previously you can use all Oat Flour or sub the AP for Gluten Free flour which will work just as fine for texture and smoothness of the pancakes.

Subbing the eggs

The best egg substitutions to use are 1/4 cup of either applesauce or banana puree. I personally like the applesauce as banana flavor can become overpowering.

Crispy Vs Smooth

How do you like your pancakes?

For crispy edges add 1 – 1 1/2 tbsp of oil to a hot skillet and Cook the pancakes on a medium high like fritters.

For a smoother fluffy pancake use 1 tsp of oil or brush oil onto the skillet and Cooke the pancakes on medium heat.

How to Store Pancakes

Make them all in one go to keep the batter fluffy then place them in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 – 3 days. You can also place them in the freezer and they will be just fine for a week or 2.

Overall, pancakes are one of those versatile breakfast foods fit for everyone. Make these at your next family breakfast or brunch and it will be a hit.
