Healthy, hearty Gluten-Free Oatmeal Nut Pancakes are a delicious way to start your morning!
Oatmeal gluten-free pancakes with toasty oats and nuts topped with some maple syrup is a pretty cozy way to start the day.
Whole grain oats lend a heartiness to the simple batter. Some staying power for sure.
While not a necessary step, toasting the oats adds a little oomph to the flavor which is really nice. Mixing in the oats and pecans to the natural fiber- and protein-filled oat flour batter makes for a heartier pancake that satisfies longer.
My favorite discovery for these oatmeal nut pancakes? They refrigerate and reheat really well. My only experience with reheating pancakes has been with the gluten variety and soggy and floppy are the only words that come to mind.
But these. These were a whole different story. I mean, I brought pancakes to work and had them for breakfast. Pancakes at work!
When using gluten-free flours, you truly have various flavors and textures to play with in cooking and baking. Take these almond flour banana pancakes, almond flour gives a fluffy and tender texture.
