      1. grind your whole rolled oats into flour in your blender (preferred) or food processor. Make sure the flour is very fine. Transfer flour to large mixing bowl. (You will need about 3 cups whole oats. Then measure the flour to the recipe. or use store bought oat flour.
      2. In your blender, add all the ingredients except the flour and blend until smooth. Then add the oat flour (ground already) and blend again.
      3. In a hot non-stick ceramic griddle or skillet (or lightly grease your skillet using oil or soy free vegan butter using a paper towel to just apply a thin layer), on medium-high heat at first, drop 1 to 2 spoonfuls of batter into the pan, then lower the heat to medium-low so you don’t burn them and they have enough time to cook through the center before flipping. flip and flatten so the center cooks.
      4. If the batter thickens too much while it sits, add more water to thin. You want it to flow out of the blender and make bubbles when cooking.
      5. Repeat and Enjoy! Freeze the leftovers between parchment!
