Healthy oatmeal pancakes with 2 ingredients
More than just a delicious alternative to gluten
Who does not love them? At least on weekends, pancakes for brunch are almost a must. Unfortunately, these sweet temptations are not exactly conducive to good health, as they are mostly made from wheat and various forms of sugar served as toppings.
Wheat and especially the gluten it contains are a problem for many even without celiac disease, even if often unnoticed. Gluten can promote inflammation in the intestines and strongly influence digestion, promoting chronic diseases along the way. Bloating, severe fatigue, and brain fog are part of everyday life for many and may be a sign of sensitivity to gluten.
In addition, wheat belongs to the empty carbohydrates as well as sugar. They cause our blood sugar levels to rise rapidly, but unfortunately also to plummet just as quickly. This process not only makes us tired, and everyone knows the low that they often have after eating, but over time can lead to chronic cardiovascular disease and, incidentally, robs our body of nutrients.
All of these factors contribute to the fact that we age faster and usually faster than we would like. But don’t worry, we won’t leave you with this little scare.
Of course, it is important to enjoy food and that includes pancakes.
We make pancakes healthy and delicious
Healthy oatmeal pancakes may not immediately sound like an optimal alternative for everyone. We want to show you that it is different and we have good arguments.
- You need fewer ingredients than for normal pancakes.
- You’re supporting your gut health.
- Oatmeal provides you with important nutrients.
- These pancakes help your body detoxify.
- They protect your cells.
The wonderful thing about our healthy oatmeal pancakes is that they really taste good to everyone and are super easy to prepare in a very little time. Oats are popular substitutes for wheat flour because of their own gluten properties and, although many don’t know it, are naturally gluten-free.
The thing that doesn’t automatically classify them as gluten-free is that they are often processed in the same machines as gluten-containing grains, and thus may contain traces of gluten. So if you want to play it safe, buy oatmeal that’s also declared gluten-free.
What you need
- 200g gluten free rolled oats
- 100 ml oat milk or lukewarm water
- Coconut oil for the pan
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch baking powder
- ½ tsp birch sugar
- Using a hand blender, blend the rolled oats with the oat milk or water until you get a viscous paste.
- Optionally, you can add salt, baking powder, and birch sugar.
- Let the mixture stand for 5-10 minutes, as the oatmeal is still thickening.
- Heat a little oil in the pan over medium heat (it doesn’t take much).
- Now add 2-3 tablespoons per pancake to the pan. After they are golden brown, you can flip them.
- As a topping, we recommend homemade jam with birch sugar or fresh fruit.
If the dough is too thick, add some more liquid!
If it is too thin, add some oat flakes and mix them in!
