Oatmeal Pancakes

We had these for dinner a while back and they were great!  Very hearty and full of texture, yet light and soft.  Do not plan on making large pancakes with this batter, because it is so "thick" it takes longer to cook through.  It is best to make cakes that are roughly about 5" in diameter.

1/4 cup flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 Tbs butter, melted
1 egg
cooking spray

Combine first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Combine buttermilk, butter and egg in a small bowl, add all at once to flour/oatmeal mixture, stirring just until moist.
Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Spoon about 2 ½ Tbs of batter per pancake onto griddle.  Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and undersides are brown.  Makes about 3 servings of 4 pancakes each.


  1. What would happen if I used old fashioned oats? That's all I have.

  2. Honestly I would try soaking the oats in the buttermilk for a little while, then combine the ingredients. I haven't tried this, but thats what I would do.
