Are oatmeal pancakes good for you?
Yes, they are. I know that having plain cooked oatmeal or any other grain porridge without any interesting flavor for breakfast every day can be tedious and even tiring.
But the truth is that oatmeal is terrific for our body, especially if you do sports. It has tons of benefits. When I was training for triathlons or marathons, my coach always said that a good bowl of oatmeal is the BREAKFAST of CHAMPIONS.
Oatmeal has many benefits like fiber and minerals; it is rich in antioxidants and protein and provides us with a lot of energy. I always tell my kids that they need a good breakfast to start their day with energy and excel in school.

Ingredients to make oatmeal pancakes
- Fruit puree. Pear, apple, pumpkin puree, or alone over-ripe banana. This is the perfect recipe to use the pumpkin puree leftover you have sitting in your fridge or overripe fruit sitting on your counter.
- Oats or quick-cooking oats. Either will do; double-check that your oats are gluten-free certified if you follow a gluten-free diet. I do not recommend using steel-cut oats as the texture of the pancakes will be too hard.
- Baking powder
- Spices. Cinnamon or any other spice that you like or a dash of vanilla extract.
- Sweetener. Coconut sugar or maple syrup
- Water, almond milk, or any other vegetable juice.
How to make perfect oatmeal pancakes
- First step is to heat the pan or skillet over medium-low heat, where you will cook the oatmeal pancakes. I like to preheat my pan so I can make them faster.
- Second step is to put all the ingredients in the blender and let it run until you have a homogeneous batter and it pours easily to make vegan pancakes if you are using a food processor , the first pulse the oats until they are finely grounded before adding the rest of the ingredients.
- Third step is to make the pancakes. Oil the skillet or griddle with vegetable oil, coconut oil, or vegan butter. Pour about one-quarter of a cup to form medium-sized pancakes. Let them cook until they get bubbles at the top and flip. The pancakes should be cooked through and lightly browned on both sides.
- The last step is to serve them and finish them with what you like most, whatever that may be. I like mine with maple syrup, butter, or almond butter.
How to serve the oatmeal pancakes
- Oatmeal pancakes with coconut or cashew yogurt, vegan greek yogurt, or any other dairy-free yogurt.
- You can also serve the pancakes with almond butter or chia jam.
- With chocolate peanut butter.
- Sliced bananas, fresh fruit, chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
How to store and reheat the pancakes
- Store. In the fridge in a tightly-closed container or silicone bag. They will last for up to three days. You can also freeze them in a freezable container or bag, and they will last for up to three months.
- Reheat. Reheat in the microwave, toaster oven, or on a grill.
