  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (you can make your own by grinding oats in a blender or food processor)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 2 liters large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (for cooking)
  • Sugar-free pancake syrup or fresh berries (optional, for serving)
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, oat flour, ground flaxseed, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon (if using)

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together almond milk, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined

  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. Let the batter sit for a few minutes to allow the flours to absorb the liquid

  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add coconut oil and let it melt, spreading it evenly over the cooking surface

  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the edges look set and bubbles form on the surface

  6. Flip the pancake and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through

  7. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more coconut oil to the skillet as needed


Leftover whole-grain pancakes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To reheat, simply place them in a toaster or warm them in a skillet over low heat until heated through. Store the sugar-free syrup separately in the refrigerator according to the instructions on the packaging.
