Oatmeal Pancakes

I absolutely love these pancakes!!  I think they might be my favorite pancakes ever!  No, scratch that, they ARE my favorite pancakes ever.  Honestly.  The flavor is awesome, they fill me up, and they are made with such wholesome ingredients…what’s not to love?!?!


One of my twin boys has been asking for pancakes every single morning recently and while I normally have some already made in the freezer, I’ve been busy lately and just haven’t had the chance to make more.  Well, I finally made him a happy little boy by serving him these pancakes for breakfast yesterday.  My other two kids loved them just as much as he did.  In fact, they loved them so much that I barely had any left over to freeze!

Anyway, these pancakes were awesome, but I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

I barely got a picture before he inhaled the entire pancake!

Yum, yum, yum!
Yum, yum, yum!

I highly recommended you try this recipe!

Oatmeal Pancakes

(Updated 10/29/13)


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour*
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups milk (I used whole) (I’ve also tried almond milk, but they didn’t turn out as fluffy.)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3 T unrefined coconut oil, melted

In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients.  In a smaller, microwave-safe bowl, whisk together milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and almond extract.  Warm slightly in the microwave.  Add melted coconut oil and whisk together.  Pour wet ingredients into dry and thoroughly mix together.

Pour onto pre-heated griddle.  Cook until edges start to look dry and top is bubbled.  Flip and cook other side.  Serve warm and enjoy!  (This recipe made 18 pancakes for me.)

My kids ate them plain, but I poured a little maple syrup on two of the three that I ate.  They were good either way!!  My boys ate three pancakes each, my daughter ate three and I had three….which left us only 6 to freeze for another day!!  (If my husband had been home, there probably would have been nothing left!)  Next time I’ll know to make a bigger batch so we have extra to freeze.  Nothing better on hurried mornings than pulling homemade pancakes from the freezer and just popping them in the toaster!

*I have yet to try anything other than whole wheat pastry flour with this recipe, but I’m guessing other flours would work just as well.  If you try this with another type of flour, please comment below and let me know how it turned out.  I’ve been buying organic whole wheat pastry flour in the bulk section of Kroger. I can buy exactly the amount I need and I find it’s more cost-effective this way.

If you like pancakes, this is a must-try recipe!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did!

  2. Looking at this and wanting to make, but have to ask first……really no eggs? Did that get missed or are they really not needed? Just trying to remember a pancake recipe or waffle that didn’t call for eggs and can’t think of one.

    1. I’m pretty sure there are no eggs! It’s been a while since I’ve made them (because I’m always trying new recipes)…but I made the recipe several times at the time, so I’m about 99.9% sure it should work, as-is! 🙂 Let me know if it doesn’t…but it should!

  3. I ended up making as written above and they were super thick. After the first couple I added more milk and an egg to see if that would help. It did. Flavor was good with the almond extract, but gets lost when eaten with maple syrup. Also topped one with strawberries and whipped cream and could appreciate the flavor a bit more.

    1. Hi Britney,
      Yes, if I remember correctly, they were thick…but I just added milk and they still turned out well. We typically don’t put anything on top of our pancakes. I figure if my kids eat them plain, then I shouldn’t encourage toppings, right? 🙂 I usually put maple syrup on mine, though. Thanks the input….I will have to test the recipe again and make modifications if needed! Maybe even this morning… We’ll see how ambitious I feel! 🙂 Thanks again!

  4. I just made these and they were wonderful! A big hit!!! The only thing I did differently was use two bananas that I mashed instead of maple syrup. They tasted great!

    1. Hi Ginny–so glad you liked them! That is an awesome idea to mash in the bananas in place of the maple syrup!! I love that–I will have to try it next time. Thank you so much for sharing with me! 🙂
