This recipe requires only 4 ingredients and most of them are already in your kitchen.
- 100g oat flakes: the best option is to choose gluten-free whole grain oat flakes, which contain 1150mg of silicon per 100g!
- 1 cup (250ml) of unsweetened vegetable drink (soy, oat, almond, hazelnut…).
- ½ fresh banana (50g): the riper the banana, the sweeter the crepes will be.
- 1 Egg / 1 scoop vegan protein: (optional) adds quality protein to your oatmeal pancakes, plus it will help bind the pancakes together.
- Cinnamon or vanilla (optional, to taste).
How to make oatmeal pancakes: step by step
- Grind all the ingredients until there are no lumps. Leave the dough to rest for 3-5 minutes.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan for a couple of minutes. Grease with a little olive or coconut oil, spreading it well with a silicone brush or kitchen paper.
- Add the batter slowly (it can be done with a ladle or from the mixer) so that it does not spread too much and is shaped like a pancake.
- When bubbles appear, it’s time to turn the crepe over (it almost comes off by itself). Let it cook on the other side and that’s it.
- Do the same with the rest of the batter (grease the frying pan with a little oil each time to prevent sticking).
- Serve with your favourite toppings.
- Medium fire.
- We do not recommend changing the banana or using oat flour instead of flakes in this recipe.
- Both the vegan protein (flavour of your choice) and the egg (depending on your preference) are optional but highly recommended, adding extra protein and giving it a special texture and flavour.
There are many different toppings you can put on top of these pancakes. Here we share a list to give you some ideas:
- Fresh berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.
- Fresh banana or apple slices.
- Rolled almonds and organic agave/maple/rice syrup.
- Savoury version: avocado, tomato, fresh cheese and spinach.

Thanks to strawberries you will get folic acid (essential for pregnant women), vitamin C (did you know? Strawberries contain more vitamin C than oranges, essential for growth and tissue repair, as well as a key element for iron absorption; and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, iodine and silicon, a powerful antioxidant. Macadamia nuts are not far behind and complete this valuable cocktail of nutrients. They are rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, essential for hormonal health, B vitamins and manganese.
