Here’s what you’ll need to make this oatmeal pancake recipe:

  • greek yogurt and an egg – These ingredients help this recipe make fluffy and fluffy pancakes. They add protein too!
  • baking powder – Along with Greek yogurt and egg, this helps pancakes puff up while baking.
  • Avocado oil – For wealth.
  • Maple syrup – For sweetness. Mix a little into the pancake batter and drizzle more over the pancakes as you eat.
  • Vanilla extract and cinnamon – For a depth of hot and spicy flavor.

This recipe is basically a simplified version of making pancakes with oatmeal. But instead of doing the first oatmeal in a food processor, then measuring it to mix into the pancake batter, you place the whole oats in a blender and mix the rest of the pancake ingredients with them.

Oatmeal pancake recipe tips

  • The dough thickens as it rests. Depending on the size of your skillet or griddle, you’ll probably need to cook these oatmeal pancakes in batches. If you find that the batter has thickened too much between batches, don’t worry! Just stir in another tablespoon or two of almond milk to loosen it up. With this extra touch of milk, the pancakes will always cook perfectly!
  • Adjust the heat if necessary. When making pancakes, I always cook the first batch over medium-low heat. But when I get to the second or third batch, I often reduce the heat slightly. At this point, my skillet will have built up some residual heat, which can make pancakes cook faster. If the pan gets too hot, the outside of the pancakes will burn before the middle is done. So, if you find that your pancakes are browning too quickly, don’t hesitate to adjust the heat!
  • Have fun with the toppings. Like all pancakes, these are fantastic with maple syrup. But the topping possibilities don’t stop there! Serve them with a knob of butter or a dollop of Greek yogurt, or brush them with almond Where Peanut Butter. We also like them with fresh fruit. Pile them up with strawberries, blueberries or sliced ​​bananas, or top them with these cinnamon apples on the stove or my easy blueberry compote.
  • Extra pancakes freeze perfectly. If you’re lucky enough to have leftover pancakes, seal them in an airtight container or bag and put them in the freezer. They’ll warm up perfectly for a quick breakfast on another day. Just zap them in the microwave to reheat them!
