Using Leftovers: Oatmeal Pancakes

by Kimberlee Stokes Affiliate Link Disclosure B

Got leftover oatmeal? Try these sweet and fluffy pancakes–I promise your kids will love them! (See gluten free notes below.)

OATMEAL PANCAKES

(adapted from Eat Well For $50 A Week by Rhonda Barfield)

 

INGREDIENTS

2 cups white flour (or 1 cup wheat + 1 cup white)

1/2 cup brown sugar

4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 eggs

1 cup leftover oatmeal ( I have used up to 2 cups successfully by adding a little water to thin the batter.)

2 cups milk (I use 1 cup milk and 1 cup water)

1/2 cup oil

1 tsp. vanilla (optional)

 

*To make this recipe gluten free, use 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix and skip the baking powder.

 

DIRECTIONS:

Combine dry ingredients (first four) in a large bowl. In a second bowl, beat together last four ingredients. Combine the two mixtures and blend until smooth.

For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto greased hot skillet. Cook until bubbles begin to form on top, turn and brown the other side.



These pancakes are super moist and delicious, and don’t even need syrup, but a side of fruit is the perfect complement! If you do want syrup, try my DIY syrup recipe here.

Can you really taste the oatmeal or is it subtle due to being mixed in with the other ingredients? Wondering if this is the way I get my kids to eat oatmeal?

I can’t really taste the oatmeal at all. They are very sweet and yummy. :)

These were wonderful! I made apple oatmeal (oatmeal w/ shredded apples in it). That added just the right touch of sweetness. I decreased sugar to 1/4 c. YUMMY!

I love this idea! I’m always throwing away leftover oatmeal… Now I won’t. It would be easy to make these gluten free by adding gluten free pancake mix or all purpose baking mix instead of the flour. (I think I would skip the baking powder too)

Thanks Fran!

Fran, make sure you use GF oats too as well as the GF flour mix.

I have 7 kiddos and all love oatmeal but my nine year old. We just make him eat it anyway, but he found your pancake recipe and made it this morning. It was so simple and delicious we all love it! He made the batter all by himself and is now excited about having left over oatmeal=)

Yay! Thanks for letting me know. :)

Thanks for this, I recently switched my two year old to Gluten & Dairy Free. I still needed to add at least 2 tsp baking powder with the gluten free recipe & used soy milk, I also added a banana & spices. Yum-O!

Do you think Steel Cut oatmeal would work for this or is it just for regular oatmeal?

Reply

Kimberlee July 6, 2013 at 6:12 am

I think it would work fine Kate. Let me know if you like them. :)

This may be a stupid question but I never really eat oatmeal, so I should just add water to dry quaker oats and use that or should I buy instant oatmeal, prepare, and use that? Thanks!

Kimberlee August 9, 2013 at 5:54 pm

Whether you use whole oats or instant, you will need to cook them according to the package directions first. It is really a recipe for using leftover cooked oatmeal when you make extra. Make sense?

Mary August 19, 2013 at 5:36 pm

Thanks for this! I used whole wheat flour and used white sugar and cut that down to 1/4 cup. They were perfect!

I just made these for dinner! I used better oats organic raw pure & simple multigrain hot cereal with flax – cinnamon plum spiced – and I also added a 1/4 cup of ground flax. And just let me say WOW!!! Maybe the most amazing pancakes I’ve ever had. Perfect for a cold, fall night. Warm, hearty and sooo fluffy!! Thanks for this recipe! Added to my list of favs

Kimberlee November 4, 2013 at 9:02 pm

That sounds delicious and healthy Chrystah! I love the ideas of adding the cinnamon plum spice flavor. :)

Chrystah November 4, 2013 at 9:06 pm

Super healthy! Anytime I can find a way to get flax, chia, whey etc into my hubby, I do! Thanks for the amazing recipe, really. I’ve been looking for something to do with this box of instant oats, the flavor is way to strong to eat alone. It’s the BetterOats brand. So when I saw this I almost jumped out of my socks! I wish I could send a pancake to you to try thru the website! Ha!
Thanks again!

That would be yummy!

I just made these for my 12-month-old son with some leftover strawberry banana oatmeal and they were a hit! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
