Ricotta Oat Bran Pancakes

Ricotta Oat Bran Pancakes {A Pretty Life}

This year my husband and I have decided to get out of our same old same old recipe rut, and venture out.  This means that we are going to try to use a new recipe at least once a week.  So to start, this weekend we tried this new pancake recipe for Ricotta Oat Bran Pancakes.  I know, right.  Shocking.  We always have the same pancakes. 

And wouldn’t you know it?  This is my most favourite pancake recipe ever.  Ok, maybe next to peanut butter pancakes, but these are a very very very close second!  So so good.  Mouthwatering yumminess!

Ricotta Oat Bran Pancakes


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  1. Mix flour, oat bran, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt.
  2. Whisk eggs in a bowl. Then add ricotta cheese, milk, vanilla and oil.
  3. Combine flour mix and cheese mix. Stir until just blended.
  4. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter onto a preheated griddle.


I like to cut down on all purpose flour, so I often make these with 1/2 cup all purpose flour, and 1/2 cup oat flour. They taste just as delicious!

The recipe was from our great Canadian magazine, Chatelaine.

So go outside your pancake box and try something new!  You never know when your new favourite recipe is just around the corner!

Have a delicious day!
