Gluten-Free Superfood Blender Pancakes are made with real ingredients, oat flour, healthy coconut milk and moringa to make these not just tasty but healthy.
If you ask me weekends should include, a nice cup of tea, a good book and a stack of either waffles or pancakes. Or, at the very least the opportunity to turn you into a breakfast loving person, cause let’s face it, breakfast is pretty, freaking awesome.
Before I jump in and talk about how easy, delicious and fluffy these pancakes are, let’s talk about moringa-the superfood that will be BIG (mark my words, my friends) this year and will take up the health food scene by a storm.
Weirdly, I discovered moringa like over two years ago, way back when I was living in Panama. It was SO much easier to find than most superfoods and we had a family friend who had a moringa tree or plant or something. I would make tea, add it to my smoothies and attempted to drink it with water on its own. Not my favorite. Truth be told.
Then all of a sudden when I was buying some new superfoods to start off the year, guess what I ran into, moringa. Yup, after not having it in almost a year, I have jumped back on the moringa bandwagon and I am loving it.
BUT WHAT IS MORINGA
Moringa is an earthy tasting plant that you can buy in powdered form and is incredibly high in
and it is also really rich in antioxidants. That at the end of the day help protect our bodies from high levels of free radicals which can contribute to chronic illness like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
I like to use it because it helps lower your blood sugar levels, so when I was thinking of making some pancakes last weekend, I felt like it was the perfect add-in. I like that you can’t really taste it, so you basically get all the wonderful health benefits without any of the weird taste. I know it might be weird to have greenish pancakes for breakfast but babes, this recipe is gonna convert you. I use applesauce as a base to keep them moist, and then add coconut milk, to amp up the healthy fats, which keep you full longer. I used oat flour here to keep them gluten-free. While they aren’t vegan because I add collagen in the batter you can totally skip it and replace the ghee with coconut oil and you have yourself plant-based and gluten-free pancakes. I normally make extra and freeze them, to keep my mornings easier during the week. I added blueberries to the pancakes before flipping them to add some more antioxidants + a little sweetness.
I really like these blender pancakes because you basically add everything into your blender, and then cook them up and munch away.
Alright, babes, I hope you enjoy these superfood blender pancakes as much as I do.
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE BLENDER PANCAKES
2 cups of gluten-free oats, blended into oat flour *
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1/4 cup of water *
3/4 cup of applesauce (you can either make your own or buy it, just make sure it is sugar-free and has no added sugars)
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1 T of apple cider vinegar
2 T of moringa
1 T of cinnamon + chaga

WHAT TO DO FOR THESE EASY BLENDER PANCAKES
In your blender add the oats first to make the oat flour, by blending the oats until you have a fine flour. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. You might have to stop and just make sure you push everything down.
Preheat a skillet or cast iron over medium-low heat and add some coconut oil or ghee and pour batter, top with blueberries and cook for 2-3 minutes before flipping. Repeat until batter is used up.
