During the weekends, I enjoy cooking breakfast for my family. We like to try to mix things up – while still keeping them the same. These Oatmeal Pancakes are a nice change from the standard pancakes. They are very hearty and filling! Feel free to add fruit or whatever sounds good to you.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp. applesauce or vegetable oil
- 2 egg
- Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir until smooth. (The batter will be thin).
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. When the griddle is hot, pour the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. When bubbles start to form and the edges look dry, flip and cook another 2-3 minutes, or until completely cooked through.
- Serve hot with your favorite maple syrup!

These are also great with fruit in the batter! Or you can add chocolate chips! Of course, chocolate makes everything better 😉 Even though we’ve never tried it, I also think these would be nice with some toasted pecans or other nut. I also like these with peanut butter in place of the maple syrup. Maybe, that’s just me? 🙂
Also, just a little tip – I find using a soup ladle much easier in the pancake making process. I use a scant scoopful and it makes the perfect-sized pancakes in my opinion! It also helps prevent the drips down the side of the bowl! 🙂
