Homemade Oat Flour
The first thing you need to do for this recipe is make some oat flour. Don’t worry, it takes no time at all to do this!
To make homemade oat flour all you need to do is to take out either a blender or food processor and add 1/2 cup of rolled oats into it. You can make more or less than this, this is just how much we’re using for the recipe today.
From here you just blend or process your rolled oats until they look like flour. Easy, right?
Add into a mixing bowl your oat flour, 2 large whole eggs, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1/4 cup of chopped red onion, and 2 drained 5 ounce cans of tuna.
Mix all of those tuna pancakes ingredients together until well incorporated.
Take out a stovetop pan, turn your burner on medium heat, and add 2 tablespoons of canola oil into your pan.
Shape your tuna pancakes however big you want them and add them into your pan once it heats up. I made 5 tuna pancakes today.
Cook each side of your pancake(s) for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
You can easily change up the flavor of your tuna pancakes by adding other spices, sauces (BBQ!), vegetables, or anything else you can think of into the recipe or on top of them. Let us know your favorite variations in the comments below!
