The reason I use oat flour? I am gluten-free, love getting fiber anyway I can, and the result, I can satisfy my morning cravings. This is a filling, easy, delightful morning treat. Or heck, or as my family likes traditionally breakfast foods, for dinner! Whoa!
Being not much of a breakfast person, however, I am always looking for something I can sink my teeth into with some texture. Not too mushy or bland. Personally, I am a bit of a salty, crunchy kind of person. That being said, I actually like these pancakes. In other words, easy to change it up to suit your taste. As for me, I add some crunch to satisfy my need to chew.
Don’t like them too sweet? Take a frozen bag of organic fruit pop it on the stove. Heat it up until they are nice and hot, and a little syrupy. Toss a few pancakes on a plate top with your piping hot fruit and therefore, natural sweet goodness is yours.
In conclusion, enjoy oat flour pancakes any time of day. Above all, have fun in the kitchen and let me know how YOU made it your own! Look forward to hearing from you. ENJOY!
