Oatmeal Pancakes

Oatmeal never tasted so good......

I have made these pancakes successfully with both old-fashioned rolled oats and steel cut oats.  The steel cut oats keep their shape and add a bit of texture to the pancakes.  My husband and I like the texture of the steel cut oats, but our three kids prefer the basic old fashioned oats.

((Printable Version))

2 cup old-fashioned oats
2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons oil or melted butter
1/2 cup flour (white or whole wheat)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

*For best results, you must start these pancakes the day before.

1. Start by soaking the oats in the buttermilk.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight.

2. The next morning, stir the dry ingredients together and set aside.  To the oat/buttermilk mixture- add the beaten eggs, oil, brown sugar, and vanilla.

3. Stir in the dry ingredients.

4. Cook pancakes on a preheated greased griddle until done on both sides.

5. Serve with butter and homemade pancake syrup.


  1. I made it almost the same, just added some blueberries. Have to say that pancakes with oats really taste good

  2. Oh, I wish blueberries were in season right now. That sounds delicious!

  3. So just wait for the season :) Its really worth trying, Im thinking to try such pancakes with other berries or maybe raisins

  4. When blueberries are in season, I always stock up at the Farmer's Market and then freeze a bunch of them - they are great to add to things like this year round. I will have to get some buttermilk and give these a try. I wonder if I could add some pumpkin to them as well.... They sound awesome!

  5. Wonder if I could bake these as muffins.....
