OMG super easy oat pancakes that will change how you make pancakes forever. Filled with wholesome oats, these pancakes are full of fibre. They are made in minutes and gobbled up even faster!
Guys…welcome to my breakfast. All the time.
No honestly me and my family eat these almost everyday.
It Never Gets Old.
Best thing I have ever stumbled across. I didn’t even know oat pancakes were a thing before I first made these.
I created this recipe from pure necessity. Both my son’s used to love porridge oats and we would have it every morning! You can’t beat some good ol’ oats in the morning. But one day my youngest just stopped eating it. My morning’s got so much longer, the bribing, the begging to just have 1 SPOON. I just couldn’t handle it much longer.
So one day while I was making yet another bowl of porridge oats, I thought why don’t I just add an egg in this bowl heat up a pan and see if this becomes a pancake? I mean I knew my son loved pancakes so this was worth a shot.
OMG. It came out like a freaking pancake. I was sold..and the best bit? I didn’t have to wait for a bowl of porridge to cool. They just ate these straight off the pan.
The next day I added a little extra to make it more delicious, like a spoon of honey, coconut oil and baking powder.
Although not necessary you could add in some baking powder to make it more fluffy AND vanilla extract for extra flavour. YUM. But when I am making these for the kids I don’t bother.
This base is my GO TO pancake mix and you could eat these with almost everything.
My favourite thing to add to pancakes is:
- Fresh fruits
- Drippy fruit compote
- Flavoured Greek yogurt
- Nut butter
- Healthy homemade Nutella
The kids love love love these oat pancakes and often have it they’re favourite duo; peanut butter & honey. My 3 year old demands this in the morning’s now.
Sometimes if we were in a rush and I don’t want any honey and PB all over them I just slather the PB and honey on the pancakes and like a sandwich put the 2 pancakes together and cut them in quarters.
Nice and neat. No mess. Boom.
So, you are about to make a bowl of porridge oats tomorrow morning? Try making these pancakes you’ll be so pleased you did. ♥
Super Easy Oat Pancakes
- 2 cups regular oats steel cuts or rolled
- 2 medium eggs
- 1 and 1/2 cups milk any type of milk will do. (you may need to add more milk if the batter it too thick)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
- 2 tablespoon honey
(If you want here you could also add *a teaspoon baking powder and a teaspoon vanilla extract*)
In a blender combine all of these ingredients. Blend until smooth.
Set pan to medium heat and add in a drizzle of olive oil. Dollop a scoop of batter into pan and when bubbles appear on top flip. Continue this until till the batter is finished and voila pancakes are done!
I usually use half this recipe for my kids. But make double for the next day.
If you already have oat flour at hand. You could just use a whisk and bowl. Mixing the dry ingredients first and then adding into the wet. This would give you a smooth batter ready to go.
