Oatmeal Pancakes

My kids love pancakes and I’ve become a lover of them too over the years. I used to only love the ones that you get from the restaurants because they were also so light and fluffy and flavorful.

Then I started making them at home and homemade because one of my all time favorites because they really are so easy to make from scratch even if you’ve been using the boxed mix for all these years.

These Oatmeal Pancakes are packed full of all the goodness. The oatmeal in these really give it a nice thicker texture but yet still remain airy and fluffy.

WHAT KIND OF OATS DO YOU USE?

This recipe calls for quick cooking oats which means that they are cut smaller which makes them faster to cook, easier to absorb liquid and results in a more delicate texture when using in baked goods such as pancakes, cookies, cakes, etc.

My kids have been nuts about pancakes lately. I don’t know what has been with my 5 year old daughter but she has been asking for pancakes almost every weekend for the past month which is super odd because she is such a picky eater.

I was super Leary about what she would think of this oatmeal pancake recipe because she has never really been the oatmeal type of person. So when I told here that there was oatmeal in them she initially turned her nose up at them.

Well, I think this little girl was happy that she decided to actually try the pancakes because she told me that they were super good and my 10 year old just inhaled them. The oatmeal in them really makes them a hearty and filling dish adding more substance to the pancake which means you will probably need to eat less to get full.

Best Oatmeal Pancakes

I love keeping a well stocked pantry regardless and always have the essentials like flour, sugar, baking powder, brown sugar, baking soda, etc along with specialty ingredients that you don’t always need, but at least I know that I’ll have it there in case I come across a recipe that calls for it. Anyone else do that?

These easy oatmeal pancakes will become a hit in your family. We like to top them usually with plain butter and maple syrup but some other fun additions to these pancakes can include things like chocolate chips, diced apples, strawberries, lemon zest, etc.

This is one of those recipes that has the flavor where you can do the add-ins or toppings of your choice. Its super basic, but super addicting.

HOW DO YOU MAKE OATMEAL PANCAKES?

  • Heat milk in microwave for about 2 minutes until bubbling slightly then pour over oats and set aside to soak up the liquid.
  • Meanwhile in medium bowl whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until combined.
  • In another bowl whisk together eggs, butter and vanilla extract until combined then whisk in milk.
  • To your dry ingredients add your egg mixture and oat mixture and stir until combined.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and drop about 1/3 cup of your batter into pan and cook about 2-3 until bubbles form on top then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. 

We don’t add any spray or butter to our skillet because it causes the mixture to spread too much and using a good non-stick pan with this recipe really is essential and helpful!

    1. According to the nutritional info I inputed it said that is what it is supposed to be per pancake! I’m no expert in nutritional value so I cant be for sure. These are super addicting!

  1. Made these yesterday and they were a hit. My husband loved them. I put some banana slices on the griddle and poured batter over them and cooked as directed. Dieting so I won’t eat syrup and didn’t need any with these wonderful pancakes.
