Ingredient Preparation

First, before we start mixing any ingredients together, make sure that you have everything you need. To make this easy oatmeal pancake recipe, gather the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour (you can use sweet white rice flour or a mix of rolled oats and oat flour)
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened skim milk or your preferred milk substitute
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats

Creating the Pancake Batter

Once you have all your ingredients ready, it’s time to mix them together! Follow these simple steps:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: milk (or milk substitute), eggs, and vanilla extract.

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until everything is evenly combined.

  4. Add in the old-fashioned oats and stir again.

  5. Let the batter sit for few minutes to thicken up; note that thicker batter will yield thicker pancakes.

Cooking Your Pancakes

Now that you have successfully mixed your pancake batter let’s cook it on a skillet!

  1. Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.

  2. Scoop about ⅓ cup of pancake batter onto the pan for every pancake.

  3. Cook each pancake for about two to three minutes on one side or until bubbles start to form on the surface.

  4. Once you notice bubbles, flip the pancake and cook for another one to two minutes on the other side.

  5. Remove them from heat and serve while still hot.

Tips for Fluffy Pancakes

For fluffy gluten-free oatmeal pancakes, follow these tips:

  • Use a non-stick skillet, which helps the pancakes retain their shape and cook more evenly.
  • Keep the heat to medium so they don’t burn.
  • Do not overmix your batter; otherwise, your pancakes will be tough and dense.
  • Wait until the skillet is hot before pouring in the batter.
  • Lastly, make sure that you don’t make your pancakes too thick or too thin.

Substitutions and Variations

One of the best things about this gluten-free oatmeal pancake recipe is how adaptable it is! If you don’t have all of the listed ingredients or if you prefer some changes to the recipe, there are several substitutions and variations you can try.

Firstly, for those who are vegan or allergic to eggs, you can substitute with flax eggs. To do this, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for 5 minutes until it forms a thick gel-like consistency. Then replace each egg in the recipe with one flax egg.

For those avoiding dairy, you can use any plant-based milk instead of skim milk. You can also swap out the regular flour with sweet white rice flour, which is a great gluten-free option. Just make sure to add an extra teaspoon of baking powder as a leavening agent.

Adding mashed bananas will give your pancakes a natural sweetness and added flavor too! Just reduce the amount of milk in the recipe by half a cup and add in two mashed ripe bananas.

You can also experiment with adding other spices like nutmeg or cardamom to bring different flavors to your pancakes. And don’t forget about toppings – fresh fruit, nuts or honey are delicious when added to your oatmeal pancakes.

I recommend serving them with a generous helping of fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup. Strawberries, blueberries, or bananas are all excellent options.

If you want to make your breakfast more substantial, cook up some bacon or sausage on the side. For a vegetarian option, try adding some sliced avocado or a roasted portobello mushroom.

These pancakes also pair well with a hot cup of coffee or tea. If you prefer, you can pour a little bit of almond milk over them instead of syrup for an extra creamy touch.

Are you always on the go and looking for ways to enjoy this oatmeal pancake recipe without any early morning stress? Then the make-ahead, storing, and reheating section of this recipe is just for you.

Making these pancakes ahead of time is a great way to save time in the morning. After making the gluten-free oatmeal pancake batter, refrigerate the batter in an airtight container. You can always prepare the batter one night before or up to two days before you intend to cook them. The pancake batter can last up to two days if stored properly in the refrigerator.

When it’s time to cook, take the batter out of the refrigerator and give it a quick stir. You may notice that it has thickened slightly due to being chilled, but don’t worry – this is normal. Proceed to cook your oatmeal pancakes like you would with regular pancakes.

If you have leftover pancakes, they can also be stored easily in an airtight container in your refrigerator or freezer. The pancakes will last for up to 3-4 days in the fridge and up to one month in the freezer.

To reheat frozen pancakes, simply microwave them on high for about 30 seconds each side or until fully reheated. For leftover refrigerated pancakes, use your toaster or pop them in your oven at 350°F for about five minutes or until they’re hot and crispy again.

With these make-ahead, storing, and reheating tips, this gluten-free oatmeal pancake recipe becomes even more convenient than regular pancake recipes – perfect for those busy mornings when you need a nutritious breakfast before work or school.

Making gluten-free oatmeal pancakes is not as difficult as it may sound, but there are some tips and tricks that I have learned along the way to ensure perfect results every time.

1. Use fresh baking powder: Make sure your baking powder is fresh, as this will ensure that your pancakes rise properly. Old or expired baking powder can result in flat pancakes.

2. Don’t overmix the batter: Mix the batter only until you no longer see any dry flour. Overmixing can make the pancakes tough and chewy.

3. Let the batter rest: It’s important to let the pancake batter rest for at least 10 minutes before cooking to allow the oats to absorb some of the liquid and soften up.

4. Heat your pan correctly: Preheat your pan or griddle over medium heat before you start cooking. Pancakes need even heat to cook through without burning or sticking.

5. Use a non-stick pan or griddle: To avoid sticking, use a non-stick pan or griddle or use oil spray to grease it lightly.

6. Flip the pancake at the right time: Wait until bubbles have formed on top of the pancake and it looks set around the edges before flipping it.

7. Keep finished pancakes warm: Keep your finished pancakes warm by covering them with a clean towel or placing them in a preheated oven at 200°F while you finish cooking the remaining pancakes.

By following these tips, you’ll create these fluffy, delicious gluten-free oatmeal pancakes with ease and enjoy a nutritious and satisfying breakfast meal!


Now that you know all about this delicious gluten-free oatmeal pancakes recipe, let’s answer some frequently asked questions to help you make it better.

Are oatmeal pancakes better than regular pancakes?

If you’re looking for a nutritious breakfast option, oatmeal pancakes can be an excellent choice. Compared to traditional pancakes made with flour, these pancakes are packed with added nutrients from oats. Oats provide valuable vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants that may be beneficial to your health, including potentially aiding in weight loss, lowering blood sugar levels, and reducing the risk of heart disease.

What is gluten free pancake mix made of?

For this recipe, we’ll be using a gluten-free flour blend consisting of a mixture of various flours such as sweet white rice flour, brown rice flour, potato starch, sweet white sorghum flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, along with some sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Can gluten free people eat pancakes?

When it comes to cooked breakfast items like pancakes, waffles or crepes, it is important to keep in mind that they usually contain a high amount of gluten unless specifically made with gluten-free flour. To create a gluten-free version of these delicious breakfast foods, one can opt for a grain-free pancake mix that contains almond flour or try making protein pancakes with gluten-free protein powder, bananas, and egg whites.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, the Ameraussie’s Gluten Free Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe is a delicious and healthy alternative to regular pancakes that everyone should try. Not only are these pancakes gluten-free and dairy-free, but they’re also jam-packed with nutritious ingredients like old-fashioned oats, eggs, and milk. The addition of ground ginger and cinnamon adds a hint of warmth and spice, while vanilla extract gives them a touch of sweetness.

Moreover, this recipe is incredibly easy to make and adaptable to different dietary needs – you can substitute the flour with sweet white rice flour or oat flour for a vegan, gluten-free option. Plus, it’s perfect for meal prep as you can store cooked pancakes in the freezer and reheat them later for a quick breakfast or snack.

Overall, these fluffy, gluten-free oatmeal pancakes are perfect for anyone looking for a healthy take on a classic breakfast favorite. So next time you’re in the mood for pancakes, consider giving this recipe a try – your taste buds (and body) will thank you!

Ameraussie’s Gluten Free Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe

I found an oatmeal pancake recipe that sounded really good but it wasn't gluten free. I changed and adapted it to suit my tastes, made it gluten free, and, Voila! This is my favorite pancake recipe. It is hearty, heart-healthy, high protein, low glycemic and packs fiber for a satisfying breakfast that will carry you a long way. Note: the oats, milk and yogurt need to soak together for 8 hours before mixing in remaining ingredients. Freeze individual pancakes and you can reheat them in the oven (or microwave). Using a moderate oven, I wrap 2 pancakes in foil and heat for about 15 minutes, no thawing necessary. These make a great sandwich with your favorite nut butter. They are also great with your favorite jam, compote, syrup or combination topped with whipped cream!

Servings 12 pancakes
Calories 243.9 kcal


  • 2 cups old fashioned oats (Bob's Red Mill certified gluten free)
  • 6 ounces Greek yogurt
  • 10 ounces skim milk (or whatever milk you like)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour (King Arthur's multi-purpose gluten free)
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar (or honey or maple syrup)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Prepare ahead, combine in one bowl the oats, yogurt and milk. Cover and let soak overnight (about 8 hours), in the fridge.
  • When you are ready to cook: whisk into the oat mixture the eggs, flour, agave nectar, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
  • If the mix is too runny, add more flour 1/4 cup at a time. If the mix is too dry, add more milk, about 1/4 cup. (I've never needed to add more milk.).
  • Heat griddle or skillet and lightly coat with canola oil (or your favorite cooking spray). Low to medium heat.
  • Using a ladle or cup, spoon about 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle in a 4 - 5 inch circle. Let cook until bubbles appear and outer edges start to look dry (about 3-4 minutes). Flip the pancake with a turner and cook the other side for about 1 - 2 minutes. If it's nearly done, the top of the pancake will spring back when you gently press a spot (just like a cake in the oven does).
  • Serve plain, buttered or with your favorite toppings.
  • Prep and cooking time do not reflect soaking the oats. Cooking time is per pancake. Cooking one at a time obviously takes a lot more time than cooking multiples.
