Why these are the best pancakes with oat milk
- Light + Fluffy. These pancakes have the perfect consistency, smooth, soft and fluffy.
- Oat Milk + Brown Sugar. A small amount of brown sugar complements the oat milk well.
- 30 minutes to make. Pancakes can make a great brunch feast, but they don’t have to take a long time to make.
- Oat Milk: Any type of oat milk will work. Use your favorite brand.
- Butter: We use vegan butter or plant-based margarine. Either works well for these pancakes.
- Brown Sugar: If needed, you can substitute this for granulated sugar.
Are these dairy free pancakes?
Yes, these are completely dairy free pancakes! They use oat milk (a non dairy milk), and vegan butter or plant based margarine.
However, you would have no idea they are dairy free as they taste just as delicious as any other type of pancake.
How to make oat milk pancakes
In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients until well combined.
Slowly, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix only until they are just combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop out enough batter for each pancake.
Wait until there are bubbles forming in the pancake batter, then flip the pancake. Cook until golden. Serve with berries and maple syrup.
Only very slightly, but you probably wouldn’t be able to tell if you didn’t know. The brown sugar helps bring out the light oat flavor and adds a delicious richness.
Yes! If that is what you have on hand and don’t have any dietary restrictions, you can make these 1:1 substitutions.
- Don’t flip the pancakes until they are ready. Wait until you see bubbles forming in the middle of each pancake before flipping. If you flip too early, the pancake can splatter and fall apart.
- Store leftovers in the fridge. Pancakes always taste best fresh, but you can store leftovers for later. Let the pancakes fully cool down to room temperature before storing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a few days. To reheat the pancakes, heat them in the microwave for 20 seconds or on the stovetop over low to medium heat.
