If you’ve never tried oatmeal pancakes…I think you should. In my perfectly, un-biased, not-trying-to-talk-you-into-it sort of way.

Mind you, oatmeal pancakes by nature are a bit more dense than your average, everyday light-as-a-feather pancake. However, they are very hearty and satisfying with a great nutty flavor. They’re really, really good. Give them a go!

As a note, you really do need to let the batter rest when you make these. During the resting time, the oatmeal actually absorbs some of the buttermilk mixture, preventing you from having runny pancakes.

Someday I’m going to try blending the oats first to see how that affects the texture, but for now, enjoy my version of my Gramma’s recipe!

  1. I made these this morning and they were awesome! Next time I will take your suggestion and let the batter sit before cooking. I am teaching a weight loss class and trying to find recipes for the ladies to learn to gradually switch from the foods they are currently eating to healthier options. This is a great recipe for pancakes. Thanks for sharing!
