Oatmeal pancakes

Kids and pancakes. Pancakes and kids. Is there any sweeter match?

These tender, fluffy oatmeal pancakes have all the kid-appeal in the world, and they’re filled with healthy, whole food ingredients we want our kids to be eating. So let’s dig in!


Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes for Healthy Kids

Pancakes have a bad rap for being pure empty carbs, but these Oatmeal Pancakes break the mold by delivering great nutrition! They’re made from 100% whole grains, including fiber-rich whole wheat flour and rolled oats. Whole grains provide extra vitamins and minerals for your kiddos at breakfast, and they also keep your kids energy levels sustained over time. Top these pancakes with fresh fruit and you have an even more nutrient-dense breakfast!

How to Make Oatmeal Pancakes

Mixing up the batter for these pancakes is just like mixing up any pancake batter… almost. You’ll need to pulse your rolled oats in a blender before you add them to the bowl, so the consistency of the oats matches the rest of your dry ingredients.

(For those averse to creating extra dishes, you can totally get away with just swishing out the blender cup with water afterwards. Dry oats don’t make much mess!)

Once your oats are ground, mix together the remaining dry ingredients, then fold in the wet ingredients, gently. A couple of lumps are OK… under-mixing just slightly actually helps keep your pancakes fluffy.

Ladle your batter into a buttered skillet ¼ cup at a time, and sprinkle each pancake with a few blueberries. When the pancakes start to look dry around the edges, give them a flip. One more minute on the skillet, and they’re ready for your hungry little ones.

Got extra Oatmeal Pancakes? OK right, probably not. BUT if you do, throw them in sandwich bags and freeze them for a snack emergency on another day. They’ll heat back up in just a minute or two in the toaster oven.

I love oat meal. Currently my wife and I are really trying to get our 3year old son to try eating oatmeal but with a child this age we’re better off trying to get it to snow in Los Angeles but now that Quaker has put out this product maybe there’s hope being that our son loves pancakes! if we can also get a chance at trying it for free, that’s even more awesome than knowing it exist.

What a great recipe. My recipe of the week is Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes. I need to try it with oatmeal. Thanks for the tip!

Tia says:

Amy- I made these for your kids when I babysat last weekend and they LOVED them and so did I. They were a little more dense than white pancakes, but that is one of my pet peeves about regular pancakes – they fall apart. These were really great and had a good flavor – I didn’t feel like the oatmeal flavor was overwhelming at all.

Lindsey says:

My kids love having pancakes for breakfast and sometimes even dinner. I am excited Quaker came out with this, I love the thought of the extra nutrition in the pancakes.

Constance says:

Yum! We’d love to try these. We rotate pancakes and oatmeal every few days for hot breakfasts. I’d love to know on pancake days they were still getting the oats.

Janet says:

My husband makes pancakes every Saturday morning – we’d love to try these! I’d love to find a way to get some oatmeal in my kids!!

Denise says:

I love oatmeal anything, would love to try this, and of course have my daughter try it too 🙂

Courtney Hawker says:

Oatmeal in pancakes? I’m intrigued! I’m lucky enough to have a two year old who eats about everything, but my husband is the finicky eater. I’ll have to try these on him.

KarenA says:

Oh, this sounds awesome!! My family loves pancakes, and the convenience of a mix can’t be beat. We pick local blueberries in the summertime, and stock the freezer, so they’re handy to throw into pancakes. Yum!

Amanda says:

if they’ll ship to Canada, I’d love to win this!
