Ingredients of Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk, divided
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • canola oil 60 mL
  • 1 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • canola oil cooking spray or extra canola oil for cooking

How to Make Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes

  • 1.Instructions:
  • 2.1. In large bowl, stir together oats and 2 cups (500 mL) buttermilk. Set aside for an hour or until buttermilk is absorbed and oats are soft. (To do this ahead of time, cover and refrigerate overnight.)
  • 3.2. In small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to softened oatmeal.
  • 4.3. Add remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) buttermilk along with eggs, canola oil, honey or maple syrup. Stir with rubber spatula just until well combined.

  • 5.4. Heat large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat and spray with canola oil cooking spray or brush with canola oil. 

  • 6.5. Cook about 1/2 cup (125 mL) batter at a time; spread it out with bottom of ladle or spoon (it will be thick) to about 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. Turn heat down to medium-low and cook until edges appear dry and bubbles begin to break on surface. Using thin spatula, flip and cook until golden on other side.

  • 7.6. Repeat with remaining batter. If you like, keep cooked pancakes warm in 200 ˚F (100 ˚C) oven while cooking rest. Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
  • 8.Tips: If you like, scatter the tops of pancakes with fresh or frozen blueberries or sliced banana as soon as you spread the batter into the pan; this way, the fruit is evenly distributed and the blueberries won't turn the batter purple with their juice. Freeze leftover pancakes with a piece of waxed paper in between them to pop into the toaster (straight from frozen) on busy weekday mornings.
