I hope you’ll find these one-bowl oat milk pancakes to be so delicious. And super scrumptious. In addition, the oat milk really helps to add fluffiness to them.

These pancakes actually are a result of some recipe experimenting that I did. And they came out pretty amazing, thank God.

Most of all, I can’t wait for you to see how super light and fluffy these pancakes are. I’m pretty sure you’ll be asked to keep them in your breakfast rotation from now on.

They’re Secretly Healthy..

I’m sure most people don’t think of pancakes as being the healthiest breakfast item.

But I’m here to assure you, that they can definitely be made to be healthy; and also delicious at the same time. Even with a little chocolate chips thrown in.

FYI: I would advise you to be mindful of how much syrup and/or butter you may add, especially. It can be easy to go overboard with it, and the pancakes won’t be as healthy. In the end, it’s whatever amount you prefer..

Homemade Pancakes: Super Easy to Make

Most people resign themselves to only enjoying pancakes on the weekends. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes crave pancakes during the week also.

If you’ve never made homemade pancakes before, don’t worry. They’re pretty easy to whip up. In fact, they’re as easy to make as boxed pancake mix. And it’s way more fun, actually.

You Won’t Have Much Dishes to Clean After Making These Pancakes

Making these oat milk pancakes is an exciting activity to get kids involved in as well. On top of that, you won’t have a ton of dishes to clean later on, as it’s a one-bowl recipe.

What Else Contributes to the Super Fluffy Texture of These Pancakes: Apple Cider Vinegar

These oat milk pancakes do not contain any eggs. Therefore I added in apple cider vinegar along with the oat milk to ensure the most fluffy texture.

You can use apple cider vinegar in almost any pancake recipe. It reacts with other leavening agents (ie baking powder, baking soda, etc.) to help baked goods rise better.

You can even add a tsp or so to most cake batters for a fluffier cake. And don’t worry about the taste, because there isn’t one.

I’ve used apple cider vinegar in many pancake and cake recipes, without any vinegar taste at all.

*Regular white vinegar would work too, if that’s the kind you usually keep on hand. I’m just partial to apple cider vinegar*

Boxed Vs Homemade Pancakes

You’re really missing out if you haven’t tasted how amazing homemade pancakes are. I too went the boxed pancake mix route in the past, but I prefer making homemade pancakes now.

And you will too, after trying out this pancake recipe. You will definitely see how much more delicious pancakes are made from scratch.

In addition, you’ll also find that it doesn’t really take a lot of time to make your own pancakes. I would say it takes only 8-10 minutes more than making pancakes from a boxed mix. If even that..

Just try it for yourself, and I’m sure you’ll want to make your pancakes from scratch from then on. At least, that’s how it went with me.

If You Absolutely Have to Make Pancakes From a Boxed Mix..

Of course, there may be times when you only have time to use a boxed pancake mix. You know, the kind where you only need to add water or milk.

Or sometimes you may need to add an egg also. For those times, I would suggest you use an organic mix such as Annies Organic Pancake & Waffle Mix.

Or even there’s even a popular organic pancake box mix by a company called Birch Benders.

I’m not trying to tell you what to buy. The main reason why I’m suggesting these mixes is because they only contain organic natural ingredients. And not synthetic chemical ones.
