Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes (Vegan, Gluten Free). Perfect, perfect, perfect

Hey girl,

I know you’ve been trying to cut down on gluten lately. So I made you these blueberry oatmeal pancakes.

Hey girl,

I know you’ve been thinking a lot about factory farming lately after watching Food Inc.: Baby Edition. So I made you these blueberry oatmeal pancakes.

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes (Vegan, Gluten Free). Perfect, perfect, perfect

Hey girl,

I know you have like fourteen seconds to make breakfast in the morning, so I made you this blueberry oatmeal pancakes recipe. And then made them for you anyway.

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes (Vegan, Gluten Free). Perfect, perfect, perfect

In honor of Ryan Gosling’s imminent parenthood, I came up with these ridiculously awesome blueberry oatmeal pancakes, which he will undoubtedly share with his super modern and equally awesome baby / evil baby mama, a one Eva Mendes. They’re gluten free and vegan and come together in a few seconds in a Vitamix. Does it get better than that?

Top it all off with some superfoody blueberry chia jam and maple syrup, and you’re in is-this-actually-healthy? heaven, I tell you.

You’ll love these because they’re a bit nutty from the oatmeal and brown rice flour; the heady, aromatic vanilla from the blueberry chia jam plays beautifully with the real maple syrup; the chia seeds and oats are filling without being heavy; the blueberries are bright little bursts of fruity sweetness, with just a tiny tartness to balance it all out. Did I mention they’re vegan and gluten free?

Make sure your pan is hot enough to form the pancake, but not so hot that it’ll burn the surface of the pancake quickly. You need to cook these totally through, or else they’ll taste somewhat gummy. So keep it kind of low and slow, about medium heat.

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • In a blender, add oats and blend quickly until almost forms a flour. Add remaining ingredients, except for blueberries, and blend until smooth.

  1. Wow these are delicious! I used regular flour because that’s all I had on hand but worked great!5 stars

  2. omg I just made these today. I didn’t have rice flour so I used quinoa flour. and instead of blueberries I added 1/2 cup of blackberries and bananas. Let me tell you these are the most delicious pancakes I’ve ever tasted!!!!5 stars

  3. I was really excited to try these. After reading the responses I substituted quinoa flour for the rice flour thinking I didn’t have any-found it later in the freezer! Mine were thick-maybe because of the quinoa flour? and had a bitter taste. Due to my substitutions I won’t rate the recipe.

  4. So, I’m new to a gluten-free mindset. What am I missing? I thought quick oats fell in the gluten category. These look divine, and I’m excited to try them. But…cautious because of oatmeal. Thanks!

    1. Oats in and of themselves are gluten-free; the problem comes with contamination. I use Whole Foods rolled oats, and I know Bob’s Red Mill has a specifically gluten-free rolled oats too. I wouldn’t use like.. Quaker if you’re really concerned. We don’t have allergies, though, so we’re personally a bit more laid-back about contamination. Hope you try them Kristi!

    1. I wouldn’t.. you might be able to get away with it but I’ve never tested it that way and can’t imagine it would hold the pancakes very well. Coconut oil is excellent for you, though! 😀
