Wholemeal oat buttermilk pancakes

    35 min

    In an effort to eat a little bit healthier but still make fluffy pancakes that my family will enjoy, I combined a few recipes and came up with this one. You can add chopped banana, blueberries or walnuts if you need variety.

    Serves: 6 

    • 475ml buttermilk
    • 2 room-temperature eggs, lightly beaten
    • 80ml semi-skimmed milk
    • 120g quick cooking oats
    • 120g wholemeal flour
    • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
    • 2 tablespoons butter, or as needed for cooking

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Whisk buttermilk, eggs and milk together in a bowl until blended; add oats and whisk until oats are wet, about 30 seconds. Set aside until oats absorb some liquid, about 5 minutes.
    2. Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into the oat mixture; whisk until completely blended into a batter.
    3. Melt 1/2 teaspoon butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Ladle batter into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip with a spatula and continue cooking until browned on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.

    Yum!! I had some fresh blueberries that needed to be used so this was perfect! I also, added walnuts. I made buttermilk using the vinegar and milk trick. My husband is a diabetic and swears by cinnamon so I added more than was called for. Also left out the sugar and used old fashioned oats (it was all I had). So good! Thanks for sharing your recipe.  -  06 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was great! The only change I made was that I used 2 tsp. pure maple syrup instead of the white sugar. Fluffy, moist, and tasty!  -  11 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were great! I added pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and they were fantastic. I also did a milk and lemon juice buttermilk substitution. I love that they call for more oats than whole wheat. I'll make these again!  -  13 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
