Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe

Oatmeal Pancakes

These pancakes are comforting and filling. Try adding chopped nuts or dried fruit for a special treat.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, or 1/2 cup all-purpose and 1/2 cup whole wheat
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup orange juice (preferably fresh)
  • /2 cup chopped nuts or fruit (optional)
  • 2 tbsp. butter


  1. In a small bowl, mix the eggs with the oil.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  3. Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients, then stir in enough orange juice to create a thick batter. Add chopped nuts or dried fruit, such as apricots, if desired.
  4. Heat the butter in a large frying pan, then pour batter into the pan by quarter cupfuls. Cook until done, turning once. Makes 9 medium-size pancakes.


Big kids can measure the ingredients into a bowl, and small ones can stir to their heart's content (the recipe can't be ruined by too much stirring).
