Oatmeal Pancakes- Oatmealpalooza Continues


(Oatmeal pancakes with butter, maple syrup and raspberry sauce)

I know, I know! Another oatmeal recipe. But, what am I supposed to do with 8 pooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuunds of oatmeal? Damn Costco!

Find. More. Oatmeal. Recipes.

Tired. Of. Oatmeal. For. Breakfast.

But am I? As it turns out–no!  I was a happy camper when I made ate these pancakes. I mean, really happy. I like pancakes. And waffles. But, frankly, I usually get bored with them after 3 bites. Not with these, however. The texture is phenomenal from soaking the oats overnight. To tell you the truth, when I looked at the oats and buttermilk after marinating all night, I thought “wow, this is so thick that I think I must have done something wrong”. But after adding the eggs, the mixture loosened up, then came together again once the dry ingredients were added. The honey and cinnamon added a delicious finish.

As bloggers, we all know how dissappointing it can be to put forth the effort to make and photograph a meal, only to have it come up short and be unworthy of publishing. Honestly, these are now my “go-to” pancakes. I am beyond pleased. I do hope that you try them!

(p.s. I think that these pancakes might be good for you too)


Oatmeal Pancakes

makes 16 pancakes


  • 2 cups Old Fashioned Quaker Oats, or other quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Add oats and buttermilk to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight (this gives the pancakes their distinctive texture). Add eggs, honey and oil. Stir to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together.

Lightly oil a non-stick pan or griddle. Pour batter in 1/4 cup increments. Watch for the tops to bubble. Turn pancakes and cook until golden on the second side.

  1. I’m grateful for the oatmealpalooza – I need to be eating more oats! Oatmeal pancakes look and sound yummy, will be trying them soon. :-)

  2. The texture looks lovely! I always have oatmeal and buttermilk on hand – we will have to give these a try!

  3. These pancakes look amazing. Thanks for the recipe and especially for the incredible photos.

  4. these look great!

    would it be possible to use rolled oats instead of quick oats?

  5. I recently made pancakes with steel-cut oats (served with strawberry sauce), and was happily surprised by the results. I really liked the texture. Yours look wonderful, and I do believe I will add them to my “must try” list. Cheers!

  6. Love your oatmeal pancakes…i can’t wait to try.

  7. yes, I think these pancakes ARE good for me too!. I’ll give them a try. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Kathy-I LOVE your panini blog! There’s about 2 pounds of oats left, so oatmealpalooza shall go on!
    Phoo-D- what a fantastic name! I really need to keep buttermilk on hand, because I found that I can think of so many things to use it in.
    Lee-thank you! That’s Frank leaning over and pouring the syrup.
    Random-yes, but if you do use steel-cut oats, be sure that you soak overnight.
    Tara-We were definitely on the same wavelength with the accompanying sauce. I used raspberries frozen from last season.
    Piee and Heidi-please let me know how your pancakes turn out and give me a link to your posts!!

  9. I am a oatmeal lover as well…will try this recipe BUT gotta ask as well have you ever tried hot oatmeal with a spoon full of peanut butter brown sugar and milk …for me pure heaven !!

  10. Ramona! These look fantastic. I am always looking for a good breakfast recipe that isn’t egg-focused. I can’t wait to try this out. Thanks for sharing.


  11. Thanks, Elizabeth…..blog about it!! (I love your blog!)

  13. These look tasty. The photo is great – food stylists beware, you might be out for their job.

  14. Best. Pancakes. Ever.

    I soaked my oatmeal overnight and the result was so amazing I ate mine without syrup. Our dogs are pancake fiends and they both gobbled them up with no hesitation. This recipe is the new staple (sorry Grandma) in my cookbook.

  15. Those pancakes look so good!

  16. If you’ve got a lot of oatmeal to use up, have you tried the Aussie Anzac biscuit? :D
    Recipe (One of many versions available on the Internet) here:

  17. How about making oat and honey infused vodka? My sister recently made some and she said it was AWESOME.


  18. These look awesome! And funny that I see Anzacs mentioned – I just read about the history of them in a book today.

  19. These are fantastic! A note on the “healthy” – as is they are about 175 kcal (5g sugar) each…not bad for “cake” :D I substituted soy milk for the butter milk, wheat flour, and 1/2 the sugar and used brown. It cuts not many calories, but lowers the sugar (replacing it with more easily metabolized sugar too!), drastically cuts the cholesterol, and gives you another grain (wheat flour).

    Not much healthier pancakes out there xD

  20. Looks just awesome~
    I will def. try out real soon.
    Already so hugry..


  21. These pancakes look simply amazing. Who need colon therapy when you have Grandma’s favorite?!! LOL..

  22. These look so delicious, especially with your lovely homemade raspberry sauce!

  23. Mmm, these look filling and delicious. I am a huge fan of oatmeal . . . my family not so much. I bet they`d eat these though!

    If you`re looking for more ways to use up those 8 lbs, you might try making baked oatmeal. It`s the perfect breakfast and it tastes kinda like a cookie! I love it and it`s the one way my kids will actually eat oatmeal.

    I`ve got the recipe if you want it, here: http://thegourmetmama.com/hearty-breakfast-oatmeal/

  24. I stayed at a B&B a couples weeks ago and they served these pancakes (or something similiar). The innkeeper told me that the oatmeal soaked overnight in the buttermilk, so that’s what I Googled. These sound like the same amazing pancakes, so I can’t wait to try these tomorrow morning. Thank you!

  25. yum. i’ve always been a fan of plain pancakes but these looks like they’d be worth a try.

  26. that looks so delicious,, i was like wow a new pancake recipe..

  27. This is a different pancake recipe, will give it a go, they look delicious – thanks for sharing!

  29. Bonjour! Living in France means I cannot find buttermilk readily. What to use instead? I’d really like to try those scrumptious looking “blobs-o-oats”. By the way, I stumbled upon your site via Mozilla.

  30. [...] even if I add fresh. I’m currently soaking rolled oats in the rest of my sour milk to make another kind of pancake in the morning, and after that I’d like to try this one from the NY Times. Sour milk with [...]

  31. If you do not have buttermilk on hand : put two tablespoons of lemon juice in a measuring cup (1 cup) and fill up with milk = 1 cup buttermilk (will thicken). An ice cream scoop works very well for putting the batter on the griddle. LOVELY pancakes!

  34. I made these pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. They were by far the best oat pancakes I have tasted. Although I added 1 tbsp of cinnamon instead of 1/2 tsp as I love cinnamon! New favorite pancake recipe!

  36. I have been craving pancakes really similar to these for a long time! When I was a kid someone made oatmeal pancakes for every church pancake breakfast and I just loved them. I searched the internet all over for a similar recipe and I think yours comes closest. I have made them several times now and they are definitely my go-to pancakes as well. Thanks for the great recipe!
