Oatmeal Pancakes

OK, I guess it’s time for me to jump in! If you’re going to start in on breakfast food I have to put in a plug for oatmeal pancakes. These are so easy and good for you, there are lots of variations, and they’re a nice break from traditional buttermilk pancakes.

Oatmeal Pancakes

¾ cup flour ½ tsp. salt

¾ cup quick-cooking oats ¼ cup shortening

3 tblsp. brown sugar 1 egg

2 tsp. baking powder 1 cup milk

Mix all ingredients until well blended, let set for 10 minutes. Spoon onto hot griddle, turn when bottoms are golden. Makes 10 4” pancakes.

Variations – stir the following into the batter after mixing:

Ø 1 mashed banana and ¼ cup chopped nuts

Ø ½ cup raisins, ½ tsp. cinnamon, and ¼ tsp. cloves

Ø ½ cup dried cranberries, ½ tsp. allspice, and ¼ cup chopped pecans

Ø ½ cup chocolate chips

Ø ¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Ø Whatever else suits your fancy!


  1. Congrats, Mom, you are the first person to officially post on here! Thanks, my friend! I love the healthier pancakes- Sounds like a winner for tomorrow's breakfast!

  2. Yum- They were really good. I think Matt told me how delicious they were about 4 times. No more Krusteez for us! Though, I was surprised you didn't have corn as an add in option! I didn't even know pancakes could come plain until I moved out! ;) Hope you don't mind I added a picture... Thanks again for posting!
