Oatmeal Pancakes

Two breakfast favorites in one? Oh yes.

We make pancakes or waffles a couple of times a month for weekend “big breakfasts.” I love blueberry or buckwheat. The kids tend to like theirs plain. I recently stumbled on a recipe in a magazine for oatmeal pancakes and decided to customize it to my own tastes.

Oatmeal Pancakes
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup buttermilk plus 2 tbsp
1 egg
2 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix buttermilk and egg and add oats. Let this mixture sit for about 10 minutes. Then mix together with the other ingredients. Heat a griddle or pan and pour about 1/4 cup for each pancake. Flip when the bottom is brown. Serve with maple syrup.

These were fan-friggin-tastic. Seriously. I LOVED them. I made one batch and it made 10 pancakes, but next time I’m going to double it because there was nearly fighting over the remaining pancakes. The oats give this a nice texture and it feels really homey and filling like oatmeal, but it’s definitely not a boring bowl of oatmeal nor does it have that “I’m a hippie eating pure whole grain oats”  flavor and texture you can sometimes get with something that is overly oat-y. The cinnamon gives it a nice flavor. I’ll be making these again very soon!

    Saw this post at 7am. Made them with the substitution of spelt flour for wheat flour and was eating them by 8:15 am. YUMMY!

    That’s great! Glad you enjoyed!

    I cannot wait to try this recipe on our B&B guests this fall. Thanks!

  4. marthaandme says:

    Great idea. Hope they enjoy it.

  5. I love pancakes in general. When I’m being super healthy girl, I make some weird oatmeal pancakes with cottage cheese, of all things, but these look terrific.

  6. We love making oatmeal pancakes! I sometimes boil some cut up carrot, apple, and broccoli, grind it in the blender, and add it to the batter. It makes the pancakes more nutritious and my kids never notice!

  7. marthaandme says:

    That is a great idea.

  8. marthaandme says:

    I’ve heard of that before, but never tried it.

  9. These sound so good. Could I substitute milk that I sour with lemon instead of buttermilk? I never seem to have buttermilk on hand.

  10. marthaandme says:

    Sure. I do that sometimes.

    My husband belongs to a running club and sometimes he brings the camping stove to make pancakes after a long run. I’m going to share this recipe!

  12. Wow, you only need to let the oat portion of the batter rest for 10 minutes? I’ve got a version from this great B&B in Maine, and need to start prepping my oatmeal pancakes the night before.

  13. Sheryl says:

    I never cared much for pancakes – but this recipe makes me think twice, since I am an oatmeal fan. I think I’ll give it a try!

  14. marthaandme says:

    It worked perfectly!

  15. This is great. You know, breakfast is always so difficult for us! It feels boring and I just never have any good ideas. The children love both oatmeal and pancakes though so this should be a real winner!

  16. […] to say I am pretty committed to my own pancake recipe (which was also my mom’s) and to my oatmeal pancake recipe, which I love. However, these pancakes looked great. And apparently people line up in the street to […]
