My kids used to love oatmeal.   My oldest would ask for it, literally for every meal.  And then one day it was like a switch went off and she started hating oatmeal.  Such a sad day!  But, the good news is, these pancakes can literally be a gateway to having your kids enjoy oatmeal. One of the ingredients is cooked oatmeal, and I think it has a cooked oatmeal taste to them, in a super yummy delicious way!  Sometimes giving your kids a food in a different recipe that they are more familiar with is the ticket to getting them to enjoy it! These Super Amazing Oatmeal Pancake Recipe is a winner at our house.

The original recipe is part of a series of recipes from Produce For Kids, with great ideas for eating more fruits and vegetables.   Pancakes are a great food to serve at breakfast to pair fruit with.  You can slice or dice it and serve it on top, you can juice it and make it part of a syrup, you can include the fruit in the pancakes – so many ways!  We try to serve seasonal fruit with our pancakes.  This recipe is delicious with berries, but if they aren’t in season, you can serve them with diced apples and cinnamon, or peaches and apricots, or in the Winter months they are delicious as orange pancakes!

Sometimes instead of maple syrup, we drizzle pure honey on our pancakes.   You really don’t need much because honey is so sweet.

Print Pin Rate

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1/4 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1/4 cup oats, dry
  • 1/4 cup cranberries, dried
  • 1/4 cup apricots, dried
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup oats, dry
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup slices nectarine
  • 1 plum
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 200° F. Combine flours, 1/4 cup dry oats, dried cranberries and apricots, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Cook more oatmeal (in addition to the dry oatmeal) to yield 1 1/2 cups.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and milk; stir in the 1 1/2 cup cooked oatmeal until just incorporated. Mix oatmeal with dry ingredients, stirring gently; don’t over mix. Consistency should be that of thick pancake batter; if needed, add more milk or whole-wheat flour, a little at a time, as needed.
  • Put a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. When a few drops of water skid across the surface, add a very thin film of oil and let it become hot. Spoon out the batter, to make desired size pancakes.
  • Cook until bubbles form on the top, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip over pancakes and cook until they’re browned on each side, 2-3 minutes more. As they finish, put them on a plate and hold in the oven while cooking remaining pancakes.
  • Serve with fresh fruit and honey.

I have 3 kids and they all love bananas, apples, peaches, strawberries, corn and carrots. Only one of my kids likes broccoli.

My daughter’s favorite fruit is watermelon but she will eat almost any fruit that is in front of her..she likes broccoli, peas, and carrots too.

Favorite??? He has no favorites. That’s the problem! He will tolerate a few edaname beans, but everything else he freaks out. Help me!

My kids love all kinds of fruit, but their favorite would have to be watermelon. Carrots are always a hit, but sugar peas that they grow in the backyard are for sure their favorite vegetable.

Barbara!! I’m so sorry. It’s so frustrating when kids won’t eat what we want them too. I wish there was some great wisdom I could bestow upon you, but I just think it’s all a game in patience. I’ve tried “tricks and strategies” out there by experts, but I think my kids are just too darn stubborn for anything like that. But, give it time, and don’t give up!

My boys both love strawberries! This recipe sounds great. I will have to try it out and see if I can get them to eat some oatmeal! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

This looks yummy.
My 6 year old loves blueberries and apples while my 1 1/2 loves all fruit I have given him thus far. Love it!

My son loves all fruit and veg, but watermelon and cucumber are his faves! My daughter has an allergy that makes raw fruit and veg hard for her to eat, but she has tried peach, pear and watermelon this summer! Her fave is raspberries!

My kids love all fruits and veggies. Blueberries, asparagus, grapes, and any salad are among their favorites.

My daughter’s favorite fruit is strawberries and her favorite vegetable is green beans. The littler ones don’t have favorites, yet. 🙂

My kids will eat any kind of fruit. And they tolerate carrots and sweet potatoes. But they swoon over Stuffed Grilled Zucchini Boats!

My daughter’s favorite vegetables are corn and squash. She likes them equally from the yellow veggie group: )

My 5-year old loves salads, as well as carrot, celery and red pepper sticks–she even takes them for her school snack!

My grandson’s favorite vegetable of all time is pickles! He likes to eat pickles with just about everything! His favorite sandwich consists of multi-grain bread, natural peanut butter with nuts, over-easy cooked egg and you guessed it-pickles! Yummy!

My boys love almost any kind of fruit, but they are picky about veggies! But both of them will always eat butternut squash and peas 🙂

My 9-yr-old loves alfalfa sprouts! My 7-yr-old loves avocados, and my 2-yr-old loves edamame and gobbled down 3 servings of it today!

My girls love steamed broccoli, roasted/grilled asparagus, corn on the cobb and lots of fruit! One of my daughter enjoy fresh veggies (carrots, broccoli) with ranch. Love your website!

My kids love broccoli and if they get to peel the carrot themselves, they’ll eat at least one every day. They also LOVE fruit and eat an apple a day.

My kids enjoy using our juicer for apples mixed with strawberries, oranges and cucumber. It’s really tasty and fun to make.

I have twin boys. B’s favorite is hands down blueberries (though he has only met a few fruits he doesn’t like … plums, kiwi …). K’s favorite is probably cantaloupe with watermelon a close second.

Our little guy is big into bananas and “cob on ba corn” from the garden–he helped pick, husk, and eat 4 ears yesterday.

His older brother loves watermelon, fresh pineapple, and green beans.

That is actually a hard one! Her favorite fruit is probably grapes, and favorite vegetable is probably carrots. She really eats a lot of fruits and veggies, but those are probably the number one favorites!

My son’s favorite fruit is banana (or nanas as he would say 🙂 As soon as we walk into the grocery store his face lights up as he sees the nanas!

My kids love all veggies and fruits and I cant seem to give them enough. Top 1 though is grapes and tomatoes

Grapes for fruit. So easy, sweet, and juicy! As far as vegetables, it’s probably carrot and celery sticks because they can be easily dipped 🙂

My oldest daughter loves apples with peanut butter. My son refuses to eat fruit/veggies, unless it’s banana bread. I’m working on that. My youngest daughter loves strawberries the most. I can come into the kitchen and see the “little green things” on the floor in front of the fridge and know she’s been eating strawberries. She picks the leaves off one by one before eating the fruit.

My son’s favorite fruit is apples, and my daughter’s favorite fruit is either bananas or grapes! They both LOVE frozen peas, they have to be frozen though, not warm at all. They gobble them up that way 🙂

My daughter loves apples, like will eat several a day if you let her. My son is a broccoli addict, he will eat the whole bowl at dinnertime if you aren’t quick enough to get some yourself. 🙂

It’s hard to pick a favorite for my three year-old son. He says he likes all of them (except melons for some reason). I would say grapes and strawberries probably tie for his favorites. Carrots are about the only vegetable he’ll eat all by himself.

My kids all love broccoli, and apples. We run out of apples all the time, they are great sliced and dipped into natural peanut butter

My girls love, and I mean LOVE peaches. We are so lucky to live in NC for now where the peaches are a-mazing. They’re also big huge fans of spinach and kale chips. Yum!

Hi Amy,

I love that blog and read it all the time and my kids favorite on their is the breakfast pizza.

All 3 of my kids love watermelon best and corn. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!

My 13-month old son will eat anything and everything! (rocks, sand, clothing and couches included:) I feed him a lot of sweet potatoes, carrots, and bananas… so I guess those are his favorites!

I have 3 kiddos, and they LOVE fruits of almost every kind. As far as veggies, they like carrots, corn, green beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and several more. Thanks for helping me find more inventive ways to encorporate them into our diets!

My daughter LOVES cucumbers of all things. She could eat a whole one by herself and still ask for more. No dip – she likes them peeled and plain!

Both of mine LOVE fruit-they will eat that before ANYTHING else(bread included). My older child will eat any vegetable set in front of him, so I can’t make a decision on that, but the little one LOVE LOVE LOVES sweet potatoes! They are def in his top 5 fav foods.

My 2 1/2 yr old LOVES bananas and peas (only when he gets to pick them out of the pod). And some added fun – he will more readily try and enjoy anything we grow (that’s where his pea love came from).

Tomatoes are definitely a family favorite. My youngest will actually go pick them and eat them straight from the garden. I always have to keep an eye on her to make sure I have a chance to inspect them first!

My children have a thing for fresh artichokes! Weird, I know. They like the cool way that steamed artichokes are eaten leaf by leaf–and they like the flavor as well!

My little guy loves grapes & strawberries….if I slice the strawberries before I give them to him, he calls them ‘ strawberry treats’ 🙂

My son always askes for red peppers in his lunch. I can still remember the first day he decided this would be a good idea. It blew me away.

My daughter will eat any fruit I put in front of her. She can also put away a hole bag of peas, too. She’s only one, so watching her eat these (frozen still) is quite hilarious.

I have three kids: 4 year old twin boys and my daughter who is 3 years old.
They all do well with practically any fruit. But vegetables is the funniest–> My oldest twin will do peas and corn, my younger twin loves lettuce with white dressing (ranch), and my daughter loves her Trees with Cheese! (Broccoli of course) 🙂

I love these pancakes! I made them for breakfast today and even my boyfriend who dislikes oatmeal even ate them and said they were actually good for being made from oatmeal!

My kids love whole grain pancakes with a “strawberry syrup” made from fresh strawberries/ w just a little sugar warmed up in the microwave. We are big fans of tomatoes, eating them like candy all summer long 🙂

My 8 yr old loves carrots – she eats them straight from the garden (washed, of course). My 5 yr old likes bananas (still working on her for the veggies.)

My son’s favorite veggie is broccoli. He is a major fruit eater!! Loves: nectarines, plums, grapes, oranges, peaches, apples…golly, the list could go on! 🙂

My kids love pretty much all fruits. Not so true about veggies. One is definately more adventurous about trying new things than the other

My daughter loves melon and blueberries. She used to eat beets like they were going out of town…I guess that she finally realized that they were a vegetable 🙁

I made these and they were delicious! The middles were still a wet oatmeal texture, just wondering if it’s safe to feed my kids or does that mean the egg is still raw? Thanks!

My son absolutely loves our pancakes and its such an easy recipe too! 100g oats (use blender/food processor to blend the oats to flour), add 1 egg, maple syrup to taste and milk/water. You can also add chia seeds, goji berries (finely chopped) if you like. Let it sit for like 10-15 min and add some more milk/water (it thickens as the oats soak up the liquid). Et voila! 🙂 Best pancakes ever!
