Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes

These Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes are hearty and filling. Make a batch of these and freeze them for a quick and healthy breakfast


I might be the only mother out there who dreaded back to school today. I loved having three weeks of leisure and fun.

I love the laid back mornings when there’s actually time to make a warm breakfast and enjoy it rather than force feeding my kids before they rush out the door at 7am.

I was immediately drawn to these Oatmeal pancakes because I know how hard it is to please kids.

These have oatmeal in the batter which gives them an incredibly hearty texture.

There’s only 1 tablespoon of sugar in the pancakes so you can totally deem them as healthy. Of course I poured syrup all over mine but that’s neither here or there.

You can definitely top them with yogurt and fruit, applesauce, peanut butter and jelly, or jam.

These are pancakes you have to try! My husband approved of them too.

Of course pancakes smothered in syrup aren’t healthy but at least you can make the actual pancakes with less sugar and then the syrup is all up to you in this recipe.

Quick Oats Substitute: If you only have old-fashioned oats pulse them in the blender briefly to chop them up slightly and then you have quick oats!

Buttermilk Substitute: Substitute buttermilk with 2 1/4 cups milk and 2 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes or until it appears to curdle.
