Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Pancakes

Sunday calls for pancakes!! But Sundays don’t have to call for guilty pancakes…you can take off some of the guilt but swapping some healthy ingredients in your recipe. That’s what I did with these Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Pancakes made using oat flour instead of traditional all-purpose flour, for a gluten-free sweet variation for brunch. A few years ago, I started playing around with oat flour. What’s oat flour? Basically, it’s rolled oats that you grind in your food processor to become flour-like. I usually make a big batch at once and then I have it handy when I want to use for recipes. Because rolled oats are generally gluten-free, the lack of gluten in oat flourย can make baked goods feel heavy or fall apart. So I learned to remedy this by adding more liquid or baking powder, and usually that does the trick!
