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. 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.
