Oatmeal Pancakes

Oatmeal Pancakes
"This tastes really great!"  It was a direct quote from my DH this AM at breakfast.  Whenever I hear a positive review after the first bite of a food, I usually jokingly inquire, "May I use that quote?"  "Yes!" was the reply.  That is the story.

Hot Oatmeal Pancakes with a hint of Cinnamon & Nutmeg topped with defrosted slightly sweetened sliced Strawberries were on our Breakfast Menu this AM.  These pancakes are just yummy!  However, it's no secret that my DH's fave is Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes.  Both pancakes require Buttermilk.  (I use the Fat Free variety.)  This week whenever I opened the door of my kitchen cabinet the container of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats beckoned to me.  It definitely was a plan - Oatmeal Pancakes!
Last night, 2 Cups of Oats, the Cinnamon & the Nutmeg were combined with 2 Cups of Fat Free Buttermilk in a bowl.  The covered bowl was placed in the fridge.  A package of locally grown frozen sliced Strawberries that I froze last June was defrosted in the fridge.  This AM I was good to go!

No, we do not devour the entire batch at once.  The remaining pancakes are packed away in the freezer to enjoy on other mornings - after a quick pop in the microwave!

2 Cups Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
2 Cups Fat Free Buttermilk

1 Cup Fat Free Buttermilk – use the next morning
½ Cup Flour

4 Tablespoons Olive Oil ( for sauteing & baking) I use Carapelli.

  1. Combine Oats, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Buttermilk in a bowl.  Cover & refrigerate overnight.
  2. Next morning – add additional 1 Cup Buttermilk to mixture so it can be combined easily.
  3. Stir Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder & Baking Soda together in small bowl.
  4. Add to Oats mixture.
  5. Add beaten Egg + Egg Whites and Olive Oil. 
  6. Stir all adding small amount of Buttermilk, if needed.

  8. When brown, flip over and cook other side.
Top with fresh or slightly sweetened defrosted Strawberries.

those who have sacrificed their lives for our country.

Your oatmeal pancakes look great. light and fluffy. I usually make regular ones only. Can't wait to give this a try next time.

Oh, I love buttermilk pancakes! And that's how I eat them...with fresh strawberries. Since I can't eat any sugar, I don't use maple syrup any more. Great recipe!

Lavender Dreamer- Strawberries are a great topping!
