I know how frustrating it can be to avoid gluten when you love food that has loads of it. Here, I am going to share my go-to recipe for those cravings in the morning, or for that typical late night snack. This is a guilt-free, gluten-free pancake recipe :) Literally you can make the batter in a blender, in seconds! Delicious food that is quick and guilt-free? YES please!
- Oats 200g
- Milk 130ml
- Egg 1
- Salt 1/4 teaspoon
- Sugar 1 teaspoon
- Baking powder 1/2 teaspoon
- Vanilla essence 1/2 teaspoon
- Cinnamon powder 1/2 teaspoon
1. Blend the Oats
Blend the oats in a blender until it's near the consistency of flour.
2. Make the Batter
In a bowl, add oat flour that you just made, and add the egg.
In goes the vanilla essence, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon powder. Optional: If you don't have vanilla essence available, you can add same amount of maple syrup instead.
and the milk...
Mix it until it forms into a batter-like consistency.
Optional: If you are in a hurry, you can also dump all the ingredients in the blender after blending the oats, and make the batter that way. Quick and easy.
Heat a nonstick skillet, brush with oil.
I use organic extra virgin coconut oil when I cook certain foods like pancakes, sauteed apples, basically any snack that I have to cook with oil. We think that olive oil is the healthiest oil but, not when high heat is applied. In easy words, certain beneficial features in olive oil can be lost through cooking. Heat, along with light and oxygen, can destroy the nutrition in olive oil. Olive oil, being a monounsaturated oil, is the most fragile and is not recommended for cooking. It is excellent when added at the end of cooking and eaten uncooked. Coconut oil; however, being mainly a saturated fat, is able to withstand higher temperatures than other oils, making it one of the best oils for cooking.
When the pan is hot enough, pour some of the batter on it and let it cook. You will know that it's time to flip when you see little bubbles on the surface. Cook both sides, and keep layering on top of each other when they are done. Put some butter on top, pour maple syrup or honey and you're done! ;)
