Oat Fiber Pancakes! S, E, or FP!

I have been in search of some THM on plan pancakes that actually taste like pancakes! 

For me, the other pancakes, while good, were not what I was looking for.  I also wanted to find a recipe that could be tweaked for any of the meal types.  (if you don't have any idea what I'm talking about go to Trim Healthy Mama to find out!)

I have discovered that recipe!  After working some different recipes out, I came up with this recipe that actually tastes like regular pancakes.  They are a little more dense than regular pancakes, but I've found if you make the batter a little thicker than pancake batter they are fluffier.
These pancakes are made with oat FIBER, which is not the same as oat flour.  Oat flour used in the S version of this recipe would make it a crossover.


I have also included the recipe for my Sugar Free Maple Syrup at the bottom!  It is so good with the pancakes and can be eaten in any setting!  The protein powder is optional but it gives you extra protein, which is imperative with THM.  **If you find that the texture is not what you prefer try them without the protein powder.  Sometimes it can change the texture of these pancakes.  I've done it both ways and I enjoy them, but I understand not everyone will.**

These recipes are for a singe serving of THREE pancakes! (depending on how thick you make the batter)  As you can see in my picture (I'm not responsible for any drooling that may occur) they are good sized pancakes as well! 






























Oat Fiber Pancakes S, E, or FP


S version

1/4 c THM Oat Fiber
1/4c THM Protein Powder
2T THM Gentle Sweet (or 1T of THM Sweet Blend/Truvia)
1/2tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1tsp butter (or coconut oil)
1/4 - 1/2c of cream (I used heavy whipping cream or you can use unsweetened Almond, Coconut [dairy free] or Flax milk [nut free])

 1 egg
1/2 -1 tsp maple extract (optional)

Mix your dry ingredients first. Then add melted butter, egg, maple extract and 1/4c cream. Mix thoroughly. You want a slightly thicker batter than pancake but not too thick. If it's too thick add more cream a little at a time until it's the consistency of pancake batter. Put some oil in the pan and cook like regular pancakes.
You can top these with my easy homemade maple pancake syrup or just some on plan S fruit (berries). I plan on eating these next time with some sausage! I love sausage with pancakes!

E or FP version

1/4 c THM Oat Fiber
1/4c THM Protein Powder
2T THM Gentle Sweet (or 1T of THM Sweet Blend/Truvia)
1/2tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1tsp butter (or coconut oil)
 1/8c or more of unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk (or unsweetened flax milk if you are nut free )
1 egg white
1/2 -1 tsp maple extract (optional)


Mix your dry ingredients first. Then add melted butter or coconut oil, egg, maple extract and 1/8c almond milk. Mix thoroughly. You want a slightly thicker batter than pancake but not too thick. If it's too thick add more almond milk a little at a time until it's the consistency of pancake batter. Spray some olive oil spray (fat free) in a non stick skillet and cook like regular pancakes.
You can top these with my homemade maple pancake syrup or just some on plan E fruit for an E or berries for a FP! 

Homemade Maple Pancake Syrup - S, E, or FP

1 c water
2 heaping T of THM Gentle Sweet (or 1 of THM Sweet Blend/Truvia)
1/2 -1 tsp glucomannan (sprinkled it while whisking)
1 tsp maple extract

Mix water and Gentle Sweet (or other approved sweetener) and let come to a boil. After the solution starts to boil slightly sprinkle the glucomannan whisking the whole time to mix well.  Let this come to a boil for 1 minute and then turn off burner.  Place the syrup off the burner and add in the 1 tsp of maple extract.  This should thicken as it cools.  This was really good on my pancakes!

  3. Can you use oats in the food processor in place of oat fiber?

  4. No Kim, the oat fiber is not the same things as oat flour (which is what you are referring to. You can buy oat fiber at the Trim Healthy Mama store link above.

  8. If you omit the protein powder, do you double up on the oat fiber to get 1/2 cup of dry??

    1. I made the S version of these this morning, exactly as the recipe directed. The batter was so thin and runny (like water) I had to add and additional 1/4 C bran fiber plus 3T almond flour to get it to be even close to pancake batter consistency. They were alright, but nothing to write home about. I even looked back through the recipe twice to try to figure out if I'd missed something, but didn't. ???

    2. Did you use Oat Fiber? I see where you said bran fiber, which is not the same thing. If that is the case then that could be the issue. If you did use Oat Fiber then did you use 1/4 or 1/2 cuup of milk?

    3. I made them with the oat fiber and they came out very runny as well.

  10. I just made these and they are wonderful. I am still getting used to the texture differences of the THM foods vs. nasty processed stuff, but these had a great flavor. The syrup was great too!! Thanks!

  11. I must have done something wrong. Mine were like chewing on notebook paper. :( I really wanted to like these. I didn't use protein powder so maybe I will try again with that.
