Delicious Oatmeal Pancakes!

Delicious Oatmeal Pancakes!

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. Our favourite is a recipe I have from my Mom. “Mom’s Oatmeal Pancakes”. I have made this recipe countless times, and have finally perfected a version our family devours. (and it’s healthy and the kids don’t even realize it!)

So make a pot of coffee (with Bailey’s for a special holiday treat!), whip up a batch of these pancakes and enjoy your weekend!


Mom's Oatmeal Pancakes

Servings 20


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ or oat bran
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar


  1. Combine the milk and oats, then let them sit for 5 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together the egg and oil.
  3. After the oats have soaked for at least 5 minutes, add the egg/oil mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, salt and sugar.

  5. Then add the wet mix to the dry mix, and stir until just combined.
  6. Cook on a med-high heat griddle.
