Gluten & Dairy Free Blender Apple Oatmeal Pancakes – These blender apple pancakes come together in minutes and taste amazing. The perfect easy breakfast idea!
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (gluten free, if needed!)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2–3/4 cup milk (I use unsweetened apple or cashew milk*)
- 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp butter, ghee, vegan butter, or avocado oil
- 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- Add oats to a blender and blend until oats have become a fine powder. (You may need to pause 1-2 times to scrape down the sides and corners of the blender.)
- Add baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to blender.
- Pour in 1/2 cup milk, applesauce, syrup, eggs, butter/oil, vinegar, and vanilla.
- Put the lid on the blender and puree 20-30 seconds, or until the mixture is combined.
- Stir to make sure there aren’t any dry pockets, then let the batter rest 5-10 minutes to allow the flour to absorb some of the liquid. If the pancake batter seems too thick, add additional milk 1 Tbsp. at a time to achieve a thinner consistency, if desired.
- Preheat a medium pan on medium-low heat with a tiny pat of butter/ghee/vegan butter, or spray/brush of avocado oil.
- Heat until a small drop of water skitters and sizzles in the pan.
- Use a lightly filled 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop batter into the warm pan. Cook the first side 1-2 minutes, or until bubbles have formed around the edges, and the bottom is browned.
- Flip pancakes using a spatula/pancake turner and cook an additional 1-2 minutes on the second side. Transfer to a cooling rack.
- Repeat with remaining batter until all the pancakes are cooked.
- Serve with maple syrup, powdered sugar, or sautéed cinnamon apples.
***If you find your pancakes are browning too quickly on the outside before the insides have fully cooked, turn the heat down on your stove and/or remove the pan from the stovetop for a few minutes to cool down a bit before cooking the next batch.
MILK. You can use whatever milk you drink. (Oat, almond, cashew, coconut, soy, rice, dairy, etc.)
TO KEEP PANCAKES WARM. I put my cooling rack on top of a baking sheet and keep the pancakes in the oven. (You can turn it on super low–200-250 degrees for a few minutes, if needed.) The cooling rack will keep the pancakes from steaming/softening too much.
