- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup buttermilk
- In a small bowl, combine the oats, flours, baking soda, salt and sugar. In another small bowl, beat the egg, oil and buttermilk. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
- Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown.
- Freeze option: Freeze cooled pancakes between layers of waxed paper in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, place pancakes on an ungreased baking sheet, cover with foil and reheat in a preheated 375° oven 5-10 minutes. Or, place a stack of three pancakes on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 minutes or until heated through. Yield: about 10 pancakes.
Reviews forBrown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes
"Okay, so I should start out by saying that I added a few things to this recipe. I made the recipe as listed, and then I added an extra glug of buttermilk, a capful of each almond and vanilla extract, and a very ripe banana. Also I didn’t want to wash my 1/3 cup so I eyeballed the brown sugar. I ended up leaving it in the mixing bowl to soften up the oats for Maybe 5-10 minutes while I started coffee and then threw that batter on a griddle, cooked those puppies up, and inhaled 3 while they were still warm and covered in smashed strawberries and blackberries. The recipe made 9 good-sized pancakes that were soft, fluffy, and tasted a little like banana bread. I’m sold."
"Loved these! Used skim milk lemon juice in place of the buttermilk and half of the brown sugar and these still turned out amazing! Hearty and slightly sweet, I cooked half the batch with blueberries and served the other half plain, topped with fresh berries!!! Definitely a new favorite!"
"The name should have given it away but this makes a sweet pancake. Too sweet for me which I'm pretty sure is the first time I've ever said that! It is tasty though. I cooked on a low heat but the pancakes stuck to the nonstick griddle because of the high amount of sugar. If I made again I would reduce the sugar. On the flip side (see what I did there) you don't need much syrup or jam to top them."
"Great recipe ! Will definitely make again"
"Very good pancakes. Added about 2 Tablespoons of milk a little at a time. Slightly chewy because of the oatmeal, but tasty and sweet. Needed very little syrup on top. Pancakes we're light but very filling. Will process the oatmeal next time to see if I like them better. Will also add some vanilla next time for added flavor. Added blueberries to the mixture. Also used white wheat flour as that is what I had. Will use this recipe again."
"These p-cakes are a wonderful - grab and go - brkfast. I add walnuts and raisins & munch with my morning coffee."
"Just made these as directed except I added a mashed up banana and they were great! My three boys gobbled these up and wanted more."
"These were a total surprise to me! When I read the ingredients it sounded like nothing I ever tried so I wanted to review it for sure. I was expecting them to be really sweet but they weren't at all. The batter was much thicker than I am used to but that was just fine. I didn't have whole wheat flour so I just used regular and I had no buttermilk so I used what I had in the fridge. The only thing I would edit about the directions for this recipe is you should have a cooking temp on there because I didn't realize that they should be cooked at a lower temp because of how thick and it seems a few others had that issue as well. If someone would like thinner pancakes they could easily just add more milk until the get the right consistency for them. Great recipe really nice job I will make it again for sure. Thanks for sharing!"
"I've made these many times now - they are hearty and tasty! I've begun adding a chopped apple and a handful of chopped walnuts to the batter - takes it up another notch. Because this batter is so thick, I cook them at a slightly lower temp on the griddle - otherwise they tend to get overly brown on the outside before the inside is done. I use buttermilk powder - stirring the powder in with the dry ingredients and using 1 cup of water with the other wet ingredients (egg and oil). As long as I have all of the ingredients on the counter, I make up several batches of the dry ingredients in zipper bags and store them in the refrigerator. Makes a really quick and easy meal any time of the day!!"
"I am not a fan of pancakes, so used this to make waffles. They were very good, I loved the texture and hint of brown sugar taste! Great for a change.I keep dried buttermilk on hand, but after reading another review, thought I would add that you can also use 1T. vinegar plus enough milk to make 1 cup as a buttermilk substitute.I usually make a large batch of waffles, then re-heat in the toaster, but for some reason, these seemed a bit dry when I re-heated them. You probably would not have the same problem with pancakes."
