One bite of my new favorite Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes {gluten-free, low FODMAP} topped with this Goldschlagger spiked Cinnamon Orange Syrup and you will think you have died and gone to Pancake Heaven!

Oatmeal Pancakes with Cinnamon Orange SyrupYes. They’re that good.

This month’s Recipe ReDux theme is A Spirited ReDux

From plain Jane vanilla extract to fancy-pants elderflower liqueur, we like to keep a little liquor in the kitchen. Show us how you like to cook, bake or mix-it-up with spirits, extracts and other alcohols. A splash of vodka makes summer sauces shine – and liqueurs brighten desserts: What’s your healthy recipe with spirit?

And what better way to be spirited than with Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps doused with real flecks of gold?

Goldschlagger Cinnamon SchnappsHazy college memories are coming back at me that might have involved a wee bit of cinnamon schnapps…

But today my mind is sharp, and we’re going easy on the booze, since I’m serving this yummy sauce on top of the most delicious vegan oatmeal pancakes.

Which you usually eat for breakfast {if you’re my husband}.

But the kids and I will gladly eat them for dinner too!

Come to think of it, is there ever a bad meal to serve pancakes at???

I think not.

Now you’ve got me side tracked on pancakes….

Which as I brazenly stated earlier, may be my new favorite pancakes, because the oats add the perfect touch of chewiness, and the cinnamon in them is just divine!

Oatmeal PancakesAnd if you’re not in the mood for boozy cinnamon orange syrup, you can try them with all kinds of other delicious toppings too, which I’ll share with you in a minute.

But first, I think I’ll stop talking now, and share both of the recipes so you can decide which one to start with first!

Cinnamon Orange Syrup

Nutrition and Serving Notes

  • Both the syrup and the pancakes are gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, vegan, and suitable for a low FODMAP diet {best to skip the booze and use ground cinnamon instead in the elimination phase.}
  • Cinnamon Orange Syrup serving suggestions: Drizzle it on top of these oatmeal pancakes, french toast, or waffles…Try pairing it with a stone fruit salad {peaches, nectarines, apricots, and plums}, or with a mixed berry fruit salad with blueberries, raspberries, and boysenberries….Pour warm cinnamon orange syrup over your favorite ice cream {regular or vegan}, for a fabulously indulgent dessert!
  • Oatmeal Pancake serving suggestions: Drizzle it with this Cinnamon Orange Syrup…Pair it with plain pure maple syrup, chopped walnut or pecan, and raisins for  “Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes”…Salter them with your favorite nut butter and sliced bananas and roll ’em up for a healthy portable breakfast on the go!
  • Genius idea! Make a batch {or two, or three} of Oatmeal Pancake mix by combining all the dry ingredients, and storing them in a jar {like I did with these yummy Gingerbread Pancakes}. Then, when the pancake craving hits, all you have to do is add the flax mixture or eggs, non-dairy or dairy milk, oil, and maple syrup and your good to go!
