  • 8 eggs
  • 2 c . oats (gluten free if desired, which I do)
  • 2 Tablespoons flaxseed meal (probably could be omitted in a pinch)
  • 2 Tablespoons brown rice flour (can substitute regular flour if you don't need gluten free)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


  1. I just throw it all in a bowl and mix it together. (I can't be bothered with dry ingredients and wet ingredients...!) Let it sit for a few minutes.
  2. Fry 'em up over medium heat. If the heat is too high, they will burn on the outside and not be cooked fully on the inside. Don't try to turn them too soon, or they will fall apart. But once they are firm on the bottom, they turn easily. They rise nicely and the cinnamon smells so good as they are cooking!

Recipe Notes

Serve with syrup, jam, honey, powdered sugar -- whatever you like to put on your pancakes. These are very filling, so adults may only need three apiece, and younger children would only need one or two.
