Oat Pancakes

oat pancakes

I love breakfast!  I especially like to try new recipes for pancakes, waffles, and other baked puffy/dough creations!  I love that you can mix it up and change it up with different fruits, nuts, and spices and create something so different.

Lucky for me, I have two boys in my home (my 3 year old little and my hubby) who love to be my taste-testers and who also both happen to love all things that are waffles/pancakes.

Today I decided to make up a batch of Oat Pancakes and they were a home run!  As a matter of fact, this recipe may just replace my old standby for regular pancakes.  They don’t taste that different than the usual pancake but the texture is fantastic.

Judah had his with good ol’ maple syrup.  I had mine with fresh, homemade strawberry sauce/syrup.  You can make up your own strawberry syrup very easily with a cup and half of strawberries, a little water (about 1/3 cup), 2 tsp of arrowroot or {non GMO} cornstarch and about 1/4 cup of sugar (more or less to your taste).  I place the berries, sugar, and water in the pan and bring to a boil. I mash up the berries a bit with a potato masher but leave some chunks (I like it that way).  Then, I mix the cornstarch with a little COLD water and add it to the pan.  Boil for just another minute or so and it will thicken up to a syrupy like consistency.

Here’s the winning recipe for Oat Pancakes – make a batch of your own this weekend and tell me what you think!

  1. This is a delicious and easy recipe. I omitted the butter because I was using a non-stick griddle. I added a ripe and mashed banana, which turned out great. I also threw in the quick cooking oats without making them finer and it was fine. Thanks for the great recipe, which has become a family favorite.

  2. Heather McMackin says:

    Can you use old fashioned oats instead of quick oats? I am gluten free, and have not been able to find quick oats that are gluten free.

  3. Can these be frozen and reheated like the waffle recipe?

    • I make a double batch and freeze the leftovers for a quick kid friendly breakfast. About 30 sec in the microwave is all it takes.
