This small batch oat flour banana pancake recipe is naturally gluten free and stuffed with blueberries.

Although my blog has always been about spelt flour, sometimes I refrain from eating anything with gluten. If I eat too much, it can make me feel sluggish, bloated and heavy. Spelt flour has always been an excellent substitution for regular flour. Although it still contains gluten, it feels easier on my body. This is probably because I am making my own food with spelt (mainly because spelt goods are very hard to come by here in Sweden), rather than eating mass-produced bread.



Sometimes, though, I want to skip the gluten all together. And this is where these oat flour banana pancakes come in. Oat flour is amazing. Okay, it isn’t the best when you want a soft, risen end result, like bread. However, it is beyond perfect for things that need no rise. Like pancakes. These are so fluffy, delicious and easy to make. They also contain no sugar. We all know how awesome bananas are for adding natural sweetness to baked goods, and they work like a dream in this recipe.

I also added some ground almonds, a liberal dashing of cinnamon, and succulent blueberries. This recipe can be adapted in so many ways. Use any kind of flour you like. Omit the ground almonds. Switch up the berries and use whatever is seasonal. Adapt it to suit you. And, don’t forget a healthy drizzle of maple syrup



This small batch oat flour banana pancake recipe is so quick, which makes it an ideal week day breakfast. The ingredients make one large, very filling, pancake which could be divided into two (for smaller mouths). I like to make one big pancake because it is easier to cook, but you could use the batter to make smaller ones. Or, alternatively, you can just double to ingredients to make more.

Ingredients for one large pancake (see note 1):

  • 1 egg (medium)

This recipe for pancakes does not include baking powder. However, if you would like your pancakes to be a little fluffier, add one teaspoon. 
  1. The ingredients make one large pancake which can be divided into two for those with a smaller appetite. If you'd like to make more, simply double the recipe.
  2. Use any kind of flour you like.
  3. Ground almonds can be omitted (just add an extra tablespoon of flour).
