Oat Milk Pancakes

  • Author: Katie Clack
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 10-12 4" pancakes 1x


These oat milk pancakes taste exactly like the pancakes you grew up with! They're just as soft, fluffy and thick, your family won't taste the difference. Have these healthier pancakes on the breakfast table in less than 30 minutes!


  • 2 cups of unsweetened oat milk
  • 3 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter, plus 2-3 more tablespoons for cooking
  • 2 room temperature eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour measured with spoon and sweep method *see notes
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon baking powder


  1. Pre heat a large non stick skillet on medium low heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together your dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder).  When measuring your flour, stir up the flour in your bag with a spoon to "fluff" it up.  Then spoon it into your measuring cup and level off the top, scraping off any excess flour.
  3. Add your oat milk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla to the dry ingredients and stir until all the ingredients are combined but take care not to overmix.  Let your batter rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Melt a tablespoon of butter into your skillet and then add 1/4 cup of batter at a time, taking care not to overcrowd the pan.
  5. Once bubbles start to form on the top of the pancake batter and the sides on the bottom curl under, carefully flip.  Cook another 2-3 minutes or until lightly golden brown on each side and cooked through in the center.  (You can always test this with a toothpick).
  6. Repeat process with remaining batter.  Will yield 10-12 pancakes.


  • We prefer unsweetened oat milk but if you can only find vanilla flavored or sweetened, omit the sugar in the recipe.
  • We prefer unsalted butter but if you only have salted butter then omit the salt in the recipe.
  • You don't have to sift your dry ingredients but taking this extra step will ensure the lightest and fluffiest pancakes you could ever dream of!
  • To ensure you don't add too much flour when measuring, don't dip your measuring scoop into your flour bag to scoop it out.  Fluff up with flour a little by stirring with your spoon.  Then scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup until slightly overfilled.  Then use the handle of your spoon to sweep off any excess flour and leave a flat and even surface.
