(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)
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.
