Make a batch of these easy buttermilk Oatmeal Pancakes for a fiber-rich healthy change of pace. 


  • 1 3/4 cup buttermilk warmed to room temperature
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the buttermilk and stir just until combined.  Let the batter rest for 30 minutes. 
  2. Heat the griddle or the skillet to medium heat. Brush the griddle with vegetable oil. Pour 1/3 cup batter onto the griddle. Cook until small bubbles appear on the top of the pancake, and it is golden brown on the bottom.  Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Serve warm with pure maple syrup or whipped cream. 


  • For optimum texture and health benefits, use old-fashioned rolled oats, not steel-cut oats.
  • Warm your buttermilk and eggs to room temperature.
