These multigrain Oatmeal Pancakes are fluffy and hearty and sure to become a family favorite! Made with buttermilk, old-fashioned oats, white whole-wheat flour and sweetened with just a touch of pure maple syrup.
These oatmeal pancakes have become our go to weekend pancake recipe. I love that they are multigrain and sweetened with just a touch of pure maple syrup. My kids love that they are so fluffy and tasty!
Start by soaking old-fashioned oats in the buttermilk for 10 minutes. This softens the oats and makes for an outstanding texture!
Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes
This oatmeal pancake recipe is healthy, but so tasty! Old-fashioned oats, white whole-wheat flour for texture, tangy buttermilk instead of butter or oil and lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup instead of granulated sugar.
Our family has made these oatmeal pancakes dozens of times now! They are perfect paired with blueberries or raspberries. Since this oatmeal pancake recipe is not heavy on added fat or sugar, you can add a smear of real butter and a drizzle of maple syrup for a truly delicious pancake breakfast.
Hearty oat pancakes are great served with almond butter or peanut butter too!

- 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 1/3 cups reduced fat buttermilk

- 3 ounces white whole-wheat flour about 3/4 cup
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Heat a non stick electric griddle to medium heat.
