Super Amazing Oatmeal Pancake Recipe

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.

Super Amazing Oatmeal Pancakes

Super Amazing Oatmeal Pancake Recipe
Serves: 4


  • 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


  1. 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.
  2. Cook more oatmeal (in addition to the dry oatmeal) to yield 1 1/2 cups.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Serve with fresh fruit and honey.

Removing anything with rapeseed in from your diet, will also help improve your asthma.

Michael says:

Wow! These look so delicious!

Gloria says:

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!

Gabrielle says:

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!

Hillary says:

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.

Vennesa says:

Grapes, peaches,peas & apples.
It would be easier to name the ones they don’t like.

Both kids loves peaches!

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.

photojenic says:

The whole family has been quite taken with jicama. It’s yummy and crunchy, and delicious!

Amy says:

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!

Danette says:

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.
