Whole Grain Oatmeal Pancakes

by zesty on December 25, 2008 · 19 comments

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  I’ve only made these pancakes a couple of times but they are so good that I had to share them with you.  The secret ingredient, as far as I can see, is nutmeg.

This recipe is perfect for Christmas morning!  Wake up, open a few presents and you can then whip up these pancakes in no time.  The whole grain oatmeal pancakes are super simple with an easy to follow recipe.

The first time I made these pancakes, I found them to be so hearty and filling that I had a hard time finishing three of them.  Normally, I can eat three pancakes before the rest of the family is even seated!

Enough about my voracious appetite, lets get started with the oatmeal pancake recipe.

Quick note, as I have said in the past, make sure your ingredients are fresh especially the baking powder.


  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 1 Cup All Purpose flour
  • 1 Cup Whole-wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Baking powder
  • 1/2 Tsp. Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 1 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. Honey


  1. Preheat a large skillet over medium to medium low heat.
  2. Whisk together the oats, flours, baking powder, nutmeg and salt.
  3. Using the same whisk, but in a second bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, eggs, vanilla and honey.
  4. Pour the wet into the dry mixture and stir briefly, just until combined.
  5. Spoon into the skillet.
  6. Once bubbles form on the outside of the pancake and do not fill in again  – it is time to flip them over.
  7. Flip just once  – plate them up.
  8. Enjoy!

I hope everyone has a great Christmas day! Let me know what Santa brought you – I love hearing about all the fun gifts.

Take care

Those look great!

Sadly, our gifts are still under the tree – waiting for my hubby to come home from the hospital. Thankful our kids are teenagers and understand!

Merry Christmas!

Update on previous post here where I outlined how I put 1/2 of the mix away in refrigerator for later use.
This morning I used my stored mix and it was maybe even better than the first time. Maybe cuz all I had to do was mix in egg and milk and cook. Great recipe and adaptable for a person living alone. Sooo much better than store bought mixes!
