Chai Spice Oat Flour Blender Pancakes (gluten-free)

Stack of oat flour blender pancakes on a white plate.

Lately, I’ve been exploring the many virtues of oat flour. Did you know that oat flour is just rolled oats blended so finely until they resemble flour? It’s a miracle!

Second bonus: oat flour is gluten-free (as long as you are using certified gluten-free oats)! Major win!!
Oat flour can be substituted for regular all-purpose flour in many baked goods (muffins and cookies especially), which makes it so versatile! Note that oat flour makes baking more dense, so the addition of baking powder maintains a lighter consistency.

Chai Spice Oat Flour Blender Pancakes are made using oat flour and can be whipped together in literally 1 minute. If you have a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix, all of the ingredients can be dumped in, blended on high until smooth and silky, and as soon as your griddle is sizzling, pancakes will be comin’ atcha!

(And if you don’t have a high-powered blender, I recommend taking the extra step to pre-pulverize the rolled oats into oat flour before adding the remaining ingredients to blend into pancake batter.)

Did you know that the term “flat as a pancake” has been around since 1611? (I hope you never had that terrible phrase directed at you!) Even our stone age ancestors were eating pancakes. It’s true.

Now that we’ve reached the end of October here in the Pacific Northwest, the days have blurred together in endless shades of grey and drizzle. My rain boots are a constant fixture outside our front door, drying after the end of every day.

I used to dread this dismal season that lasts from October to February. But ever since J proposed to me on a damp, grey day in January, I’ve had second thoughts about rainy days. Rainy days just mean you need to be prepared – you need to put on your rain boots, a rain coat, grab an umbrella and head outside.

Okay. Confession time. I hardly ever make pancakes for breakfast. Whenever I’m craving a sweet breakfast, we always make our family-favourite Fluffiest Waffles.  Because they’re just so darn fluffy and delicious!
