Family Favorite: Oat Pancakes

We absolutely love these pancakes! Whatever don’t get finished, go into a glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days and get toasted whenever we want a sweet treat. They are full of great ingredients–flax, oats, and blueberries and keep us energized all day.

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • 2 cups of oat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink himalayan salt
  • 1 cup blueberries (or chocolate chips–we use Enjoy Life)
  • Additional coconut oil for cooking

Directions:

  1. In a glass measuring cup, combine water, flax, maple syrup, vanilla, and oil. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  4. Fold blueberries or chocolate chips in.
  5. Cook on stove using coconut oil.
  6. Enjoy!

Alex founded Hello My Tribe not because she was an expert on motherhood, but because she was a mom who desperately needed support and community. During those tough first months of motherhood, Alex spent day after day reading and learning about motherhood. She learned: 1. She wasn’t alone in her feelings about motherhood. 2. Everything we could have ever dreamt of existed for the baby, but there was a lack of resources for the woman/mother 3. There are many maternal health issues in our country that need attention and need to be addressed. Hello My Tribe was built upon these needs. Previous to launching Hello My Tribe in 2016, Alex was a professional and volunteer fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for non-profit organizations. Alex lives in Austin, TX.
