Perfect for weekend brunch!

Heading into the weekend, I thought I would post an idea for breakfast. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, both to eat and to prepare! But weekday breakfasts leave little to the imagination, there is nothing creative about a bowl of cereal! But on weekends, it’s a different story. In our house, Saturday and Sunday are pancake days.

Delicious Oatmeal Pancakes!

Mom’s Oatmeal Pancakes

Our favourite pancakes are my Mom’s recipe for oatmeal pancakes. I have made this recipe countless times, seriously more times than I can count. These pancakes are flavourful, soft and so so delicious. So make a pot of coffee (with Bailey’s for a special treat!), make a fruit salad, and whip up a batch of these pancakes and enjoy your weekend!

Oatmeal Pancake Recipe Tips

Over the years I have made these pancakes so many times, with so many substitutions, so I thought I would share them here with you!

  • Oats: This recipe works well with either quick oats or rolled oats.
  • Milk: I usually use 2% milk, but I have also used oat milk, almond milk and condensed milk.
  • Extras: Sometimes I will add 2 tsp of chia seeds or ground flax seed.
  • Reheating: We reheat any leftover pancakes in the toaster.
  • Freezing: These pancakes freeze well.

  1. Made these for supper tonight. They taste fabulous with real maple syrup. Thank you for posting a healthy, tasty recipe

  2. Is there something I can sub for the wheat germ/oat bran… like more flour/oats? I don’t ever use those ingredients and don’t particularly want to purchase them for one recipe.
