The best one bowl vegan chocolate chip pancakes that are undetectably healthy! Completely dairy free, gluten free, and oil free, these healthy pancakes are perfect for kids and adults alike!


  • 2 cups rolled oats, ground into oat flour*
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder *
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Optional: 2 tbsp pea protein powder
  • 1 1/2 cups dairy free milk + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips, such as Lily’s Sweet Dark Chocolate Chips or Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips


  1. Make sure that you prepare the dairy free milk and apple cider vinegar mixture and the ground flaxseed water mixture and allow for both to sit for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, arrowroot starch, baking soda, sea salt, and optional pea protein powder.
  3. Add in the dairy free milk mixture, ground flaxseed mixture, and vanilla extract. Fold the wet into dry until completely combined.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips, and set aside.
  5. Prepare a pancake skillet brushed with coconut oil.
  6. Make each pancake using about 1/3 cup batter. Allow the chocolate chip  pancakes to cook for about 2-3 minutes on the first side. You’ll see that the edges are set while the middle still looks wet. Flip and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute. If you lightly pat the pancake down with a spatula and it bounces back, then it’s ready to plate.
  7. Plate the pancakes and serve with extra chocolate chips, homemade peanut butter, a drizzle of maple syrup, coconut cream, and/or fresh fruit!


*If using store bought oat flour, all-purpose flour, or gluten-free 1-to-1 baking flour, use 1 3/4 cups flour.

*You can use cornstarch in place of arrowroot powder
