We have a fun weekend family breakfast tradition in our household... pancake Sunday! My husband loves breakfast, both cooking it and eating it. I like making small swaps to help make our favorite recipes just a little healthier. Put those two together and I must say that we have perfected super easy vegan gluten free pancakes and the best part, you make it all in your blender and don't dirty any bowls. This vegan gluten free pancakes recipe uses oats and will leave you full and satisfied without feeling any guilt over eating a decadent and fun breakfast.
These vegan gluten free pancakes are super simple to make, blend all the ingredients together in your blender, then cook and then enjoy. We use a Vitamix high speed blender and love it, but this recipe will work with any blender. We also make our own cashew milk and use it in this recipe. We make it probably twice a week and out of all the nut milks we have tried I find that I like cashew the best, we also get the cashews in bulk from a local food coop group to save a little money on them. To make the cashew milk, just blend one cup of cashews in three or four cups of water and you are done. To make it all at once I suggest making your cashew milk right before you make the vegan gluten free pancakes so there is no need to wash your blender in between. You can use any type of milk you like though, homemade or store bought, they come out great every time. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter at a time onto a hot pan, when the edges just start to brown and the bubble around the edges start to stay popped its time to flip them. This will work for large or small pancakes, my kids love silver dollar size.
