Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes

These Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes are hearty and filling. This tried and true recipe comes from the Duggar family. If all 19 of their kids approve, yours should too! Make a batch and freeze them for a quick and healthy breakfast.  Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes - a hearty pancake recipe from the Duggar family. If all 19 of their kids approve, yours should too!I might be the only mother out there who dreaded back to school today. I loved having three weeks of leisure and fun. I love the laid back mornings when there’s actually time to make a warm breakfast and enjoy it rather than force feeding my kids before they rush out the door at 7am.

I was immediately drawn to these Oatmeal pancakes because I know how hard it is to please kids and if the Duggars and all 19 kids have approved of these, I know they are good. These have oatmeal in the batter which gives them an incredibly hearty texture. There’s only 1 tablespoon of sugar in the pancakes so you can totally deem them as healthy. Of course I poured syrup all over mine but that’s neither here or there. You can definitely top them with yogurt and fruit, applesauce, peanut butter and jelly, or jam.

Recipe Notes
Quick Oats Substitute: If you only have old-fashioned oats pulse them in the blender briefly to chop them up slightly and then you have quick oats!

Buttermilk Substitute: Substitute buttermilk with 2 1/4 cups milk and 2 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes or until it appears to curdle.

  1. We’ve been making a similar recipe for a number of years. They are the greatest pancakes ever. We use the old fashioned oats . We mix up the oats and buttermilk the night before and let them chill in the fridge overnight. It softens the oats really well and everything then seems to come together really quickly in the morning.

  2. It looks amazzzingggggg! So delicious! Need to try this recipe.
    Happy new year!

  3. These look soon good!

  4. Definitely trying these out! Yummers, yum, YUM! Thanks for posting!

  5. These look fantastic! And I agree–if all the Duggar kids are fans, it’s got to be great! Pinned!

  6. This is going to be our breakfast this weekend! My boys love pancakes

  7. What a great breakfast, lunch or dinner. I love pancakes. xo Catherine

  8. I made these the other night and they were very good. I did kick them up a notch, I added cinnamon to the batter and then added mini choc. chips to some and raisins also. Tasted like warm choc. chip oatmeal cookies!

  9. I always mix the oatmeal and buttermilk the night before and let it sit over night in the fridge too. (I can’t tell any difference between using quick or old fashioned oats this way) The best toppings for these pancakes (and make them not so healthy anymore!) is buttermilk syrup or Nutella. The Nutella makes them taste like a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. So yummy!

  11. Great recipe! I’ve made pancakes with oat flour, but never quick oats. On the weekend breakfast list now!!

  12. Can we eliminate baking soda??
    If yes, will the result still be the same?

  13. Turned out great! I halved the recipe and added a little vanilla and cinnamon. Also added some toasted pecans! Thanks!

  14. Well….I’ve just made these and I am quite disappointed tbh ๐Ÿ™ I know that what you call pancakes in US is not exactly the same as what we call pancakes in Europe… We make pancakes that are more like the french crepes. We have a smaller a thicker version that we call a different name though – I thought it is going to be something like that. But this is way too far away from both of these concepts … I just tastes wrong, sorry ๐Ÿ™ Especially the buttermilk in it. And I love buttermilk, but in here….it just doesn’t work for me. I made two pancakes and than threw it all away. It’s not exactly disgusting but is just tastes wrong and I know my bf wouldn’t eat it :-/

  15. Hi! Can I make a few of these on Sunday for the rest of the week? How should i store them?

  16. Will it come out the same if I don’t blend the oats? What if I crush them a little bit then add them? Or how different will it be? P.S need this answer tonight I am making these for my parents into he morning at 6am. (Sorry for being crude.

  17. Christy, can you substitute ‘Steel Cut Oats” for the Quick Oats? If so, how?
