Mmmmm Farm Favorite Oatmeal Pancakes

20160402_100917Tasty Delicious Breakfast

This morning a friend had made a post on Facebook about pancakes, and I thought mmm I would like pancakes haha, and defiantly not those yucky banana ones.  I did a quick google search and decided on Farm Fresh Oatmeal Pancakes.  I like the idea of oatmeal as it is considered a protein and not just a ball of flour.  I also though you could put peanut butter or fresh fruit on top instead of syrup.  The ingredients are very simple, and I had everything on hand.  I only made half the recipe and  used some oil instead of melted butter.

My husband though I should have left the cinnamon out, but either way they were yummy!!  I also kept his in the pan a little longer, hence the extra brown ones!!

Ingredients20160402_102113

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) quick-cooking rolled oats

2 cups (500 mL) Milk
1/2 cup (125 mL) whole wheat flour
1/2 cup (125 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) packed brown sugar
1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup (60 mL) butter, melted
Butter, for cooking

Directions

The directions were super simple and easy to follow.

In a large bowl, combine rolled oats and milk, let stand 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, s20160402_095918ugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

Whisk eggs and 1/4 cup (60 mL) butter into milk mixture until blended. Pour over flour mixture and stir just until combined

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush with a thin layer of butter. Ladle about 1/4 cup (60 mL) batter per pancake into skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 min or until bottoms are golden and edges look dry; turn and cook for 1 to 2 min longer or until golden and puffed. Repeat with remaining batter, adjusting heat as necessary to prevent burning.

Nutritional Info20160402_100101

I also enjoyed that the recipe had all the nutritional info as well.  I am not sure how many pancake this serving is, as my calculations for the half batch is about 34 calories per pancake!! Which is very good as these are super filling, just try avoid all the syrup and margarine on top!  I will definatly be making these again and again.

  1. These look delicious! I will admit, I have always LOVED pancakes, but have never felt overly full after eating them, nor great nutritional value in regular recipes. That being said, these seem to be much more ‘dense’ in good nutritional value and filling. I will definitely be trying these tomorrow morning to start my day off right. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I want pancakes now. I think for your summary of learning you should just bring a giant plate of pancakes!!!!

    I’ve never tried oatmeal pancakes– do you like them more than the alternative just because of the protein aspect or do they taste better?

    Also, no cinnamon?! Come on, husband!

    1. I would say that there is no difference in terms of taste. They smell like french toast when they are cooking. The website that I got the recipe off of has all sort of variations and additions that you can add to mix them up! Good luck. I hope you get the chance to try them.

  3. These look delicious! I can just smell them! You know, I’ve never had pancakes made from scratch, just store-bought mixes, so I’m going to have to try these. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I’m wishing I had a maple tree in my yard to try tapping and making my own syrup!
