  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (or oat flour)
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • ¼ cup brown sugar unrefined
  • 1 cup spelt milk (see substitution ideas above)
  • ¼ cup chia seeds raw
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for greasing the pan


  • In a large bowl, mix whole wheat flour, oats (oat flour), sugar, baking soda, baking powder and chia seeds. Combine until well blended.
  • Then, make a well in the middle and include the egg and milk and whisk until all is well combined.
  • Grease your preheated nonstick pan with olive oil and pour some of the mix (I use middle-sized ladle or 1/3 cup) in the middle. Let pancake batter expand.
  • Flip pancake over when bubbles appear on surface and pancake is firm all around (enough for you to flip over). Flip with a wooden spatula (hand crafted in Europe) and cook until other side turns golden. Repeat until all batter is cooked. Serve immediately with favorite topping.
