Gluten Free Flax Oatmeal Pancakes

Gluten Free Flax Oatmeal Pancakes

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 12 pancakes 1x


Gluten Free Flax Almond Oatmeal Pancakes are what breakfast is all about!! Light and fluffy pancakes made with a combination of oats, almonds and ground flaxseeds will definitely leave you feeling ready to take on your day.


  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, optional but recommended
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (dairy or nondairy; I use almond milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Oil or cooking spray for the pan
  • Maple syrup, butter, peanut butter, sliced banana, etc for serving


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, oats, almond flour, flax, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a second mixing bowl whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla well together. Add the milk mixture to the flour and whisk until smooth and no clumps remain.
  3. Heat a nonstick skillet or frying pan over medium low heat. Spray (I love my Misto for this but any natural oil sprayer will do) or add just a couple drops of oil to the pan.
  4. Add about a 1/4 cup of batter at a time to the pan per pancake. Cook for about 4 minutes or until the pancakes start to turn a golden brown colour around the edges. Flip and cook for 3-4 minutes more. Transfer cooked pancakes to a cooling rack in a low oven (about 200F) to keep warm or serve immediately. Repeat until the batter is gone.
  5. Serve with your favourite pancake toppings – maple syrup, honey, jam, peanut butter, banana slices, etc. Store any leftover pancakes in the fridge and reheat in a toaster set on medium low.


The longer the batter sits, the fluffier the pancakes become.

If you find the batter initially too thin, add 1 tablespoon at a time of oat flour until desired consistency is reached.
