Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes and Waffles

Oatmeal Pancakes and Waffles

We love to have pancakes and waffles on the weekends.  It’s one of the few things that everyone will actually eat with out complaining (which means it’s a miracle food, lol).  It’s also one thing that my husband is the one to make, every time.  He has the recipe we used memorized … enough. However, the other day as I started making them, but decided I wanted to try something different.  I wanted to make them slightly healthier, and see how they tasted.  I’m not one to experiment in the kitchen much, but after this, maybe I will for the benefit of all my awesome readers.

I love feeling like my kids are enjoying and eating healthy oatmeal pancakes and waffles.  It just makes things so awesome.  My kids aren’t oatmeal eaters, so it’s a great way to get it in there, and have them enjoying it.  

I don’t want you to be intimidated by the fact that I made the oatmeal flour.  It was SO easy, anyone can do it.  Grab your blender, or your food processor.  Pour your oats in, and get them finely blended.  It may take a couple minutes depending on what you’re using.  Get them blended well, so it isn’t gritty.  You’ll want to measure at this point and see how much flour you have  You may need to make a bit more. Oatmeal pancakes

Then you’ll just start combining your ingredients.  You can start with your eggs and just mix them a little bit.  Then just go ahead and add everything else in your bowl.

Mix everything until there are no lumps.  If it seems a little too runny you can just add a little more flour.  We ended up with about 2 1/2 cups of flour.

Once you’ve got it all ready, just pour it onto your pan or your waffle iron.  How much batter you use will determine how many you’ll get.  We usually use a 1/4 cup measure for the pancakes (or do mini ones for the kids).  These ones were actually much larger than we usually make.  They turned out great.

    I’ve been looking for an oatmeal pancake recipe. Can’t wait to try this one! What kind of oats did you use?

      Hi Erin! Thanks! We really like these ones. I’ve always used the Old Fashion Quaker oats. I’m not sure if quick oats would work or another kind all together. If you use something different I’d love to know how they turn out. 🙂

      I haven’t tried it with the minute oats. I’d assume that it could change the texture or even the thickness of it. You could always give it a try. I’m sure that it would still turn out, but I’m not sure if you’d need to add more flour/milk or anything like that. I’d love to know if you try it out though. Thanks for stopping by!

    These pancakes are very tasty. I made it today for breakfast for me and my picky eater who is a toddler. My daughter killed this! I love this recipe because it is healthy. I did add my personal preferences like vanilla extract, cinnamon and a half a teaspoon of baking soda for a fluffier pancake. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!!

    These were really good. Hooray I can have pancakes and not feel guilty. My usuall breakfast is oatmeal sweetened with a bit of maple syrup, blueberries and walnuts. I cut this recipe in half since I was only having 1 and saving the rest to eat during the week. I used 1 cup of Bob’s red mill oat flour, 1/4 cup Bob’s 5 grain rolled oats ( I like texture). I also added 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Topped my pancake with blueberries , strawberries and a drizzle of maple syrup. Yum!!!

    I really liked these but the sodium count from the baking powder is huge. Has anyone tried reducing it?

    This is a staple recipe in our home. Took 1/4 oat flour out and replaced it with dark chocolate cocoa. It was a hit! Thanks

    A really quick and easy way to make oatmeal flour is in a coffee grinder. It’s literally seconds. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    Hooray for me, I figured out how to get to the recipe! When I clicked on NEXT there was no recipe, so instead I clicked on page 2 and the recipe was there! I am going to make these for breakfast today using my sprouted rolled oats! Thanks for sharing 😋
