If you’re looking for a healthy vegan pancake recipe that makes super light and fluffy pancakes, this is it!
These pancakes are easy to make and puff up to be super airy when cooked. This recipe is made with One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats which have more nutrients and are easier to digest than regular oats. Like all One Degree Organics products, these oats are also glyphosate-free, which I love, and also certified gluten-free, which is perfect for anyone with a gluten sensitivity.
Why you’ll love this recipe
- These pancakes are completely dairy-free, egg-free and gluten-free so they’re perfect if you have any food sensitivities. (Also, everyone will love them!)
- They puff up in the pan and grow into light and fluffy pancakes.
- They have the added nutrients of oats for an extra nutrition boost.
Ingredients in these pancakes
- Ground flax seeds: Ground flax seeds are used to make a flax egg which will help the pancakes bind together.
- Sprouted Rolled Oats: The star ingredient in these pancakes! Gives them a great texture and flavour.
- Gluten-free flour: Make sure to use one with xantham gum in it or you can use regular flour
- Baking Powder: A full tablespoon goes into this recipe. It sounds like a lot, but it’s what gives these pancakes a light and fluffy texture.
- Salt: just a pinch!
- Maple Syrup: To add some sweetness to the pancakes. You could leave this out.
- Almond Milk: Or any plant-based milk you love
- Avocado Oil: just a touch to add some richness to the pancakes.
How to make oatmeal pancakes from scratch
This recipe is simple to make and has 3 main steps:
- Preparing the flax egg by mixing the flax seeds and water together so it turns into a gel. This should take about 5 minutes.
- Blending the oats into oat flour. This is optional but will give you that lighter fluffier texture.
- Mixing the wet and dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Make sure to use ground flax seeds when preparing the flax egg mixture. Whole flax seeds won’t work. The flax and water should have a “gel” texture after it sits for about 5 minutes. If it doesn’t you may have added too much water.
- Don’t overmix the batter! This is what causes dense pancakes. Mix just until combined. A few small clumps are okay.
- Don’t cook the pancakes on too high of a heat. If you do, the outsides of the pancakes will cook too fast while the inside will remain raw.
- If you prefer a more chewy oaty texture, you can skip out on blending the oats into oat flour and leave them whole.

How much ground flax seed am I supposed to use with 3 tbsp of water for the flax egg?
Made silver dollar pancakes minus the flour and oil, came out great!
Happy you enjoyed the recipe!
Great pancakes! Mom, Dad, and toddler love them!!! Thank you!
Happy you all enjoyed Laura! 🙂
Easy to whip up in a few minutes. I opted not to grind the oats and at first, the batter was super wet, but after letting it rest a few minutes, it was perfect. I added cinnamon to the batter and served the pancakes with a warm berry compote. These were, by far, the best oatmeal pancakes I’ve ever eaten. Bravo!
Happy you enjoyed these pancakes Joanne!
These were absolutely delicious! We subbed GF flour and added a bit of vanilla extract. They were the perfect consistency. Will be making again!
So happy you enjoyed them!
These pancakes are amazing. I substituted oat milk.
Thank you! Happy you enjoyed!
Used only oat flour and replaced the oil with applesauce and oh boy I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed these pancakes. Shared them with my slowly converting non-vegan roommate and they were a hit with her. Oh yeah, I also snuck in a carrot and some zucchini, sprinkled blueberries on top. Highly recommend!
Thanks Ainsley! Happy you liked the recipe!
These are fantastic! I made them at 2am and topped them with peanut butter, coconut flakes, chia seeds, and syrup and WOW. 10/10 recipe, they’re fluffy and delicious
Sounds like a great late night snack! Happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe!
