Simply Scrumptious Blender Oat Pancakes

Simply Scrumptious Blender Oat Pancakes from

These pancakes are Peanut’s (7) hands-down favorite breakfast, and the most requested one in our house.

In fact, the kids ask for them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks when we have them on hand! They’re our adaptation of a recipe from one of Sue Gregg’s cookbooks and they are absolutely delicious with a smidgen (or more than a smidgen! 😉 ) of homemade butter and real maple syrup on them – although my kids have been known to grab a leftover one out of the fridge and eat it plain and cold as a snack – that’s how good they are!

The batter also makes great waffles. It freezes well, so it’s possible to make a large batch ahead of time (although when we’ve attempted this, they nearly all get eaten before we can freeze any, no matter how huge a batch we try to make!)

The soaking overnight not only breaks down the phytic acid in the oatmeal, releasing important nutrients, making it more digestible, and improving the texture, it also makes it so convenient in the morning!

Here’s how to make them:

Simply Scrumptious Blender Oat Pancakes

The evening before, place the milk (or yogurt, or whichever liquid you’re using), coconut oil, vanilla, and rolled oats in the blender and blend at high speed 2 minutes or until smooth. Leave this mixture soaking overnight on the counter.

The next morning, add the 3 eggs and blend thoroughly. The mixture will probably be fairly thick, you may need to break it up with a spatula somewhat before blending.

Next, mix in the sucanat, salt, baking soda, and baking powder thoroughly, but briefly, using the blender and/or a rubber spatula as needed. Bake on a moderately hot griddle, or for waffles, in a hot waffle iron.

  1. Boy, we think alike. I just posted our favorite pancakes yesterday!

  2. Sounds yummy! I've been making oatmeal pancakes for awhile but have never done the oatmeal in the blender. I bet the texture is wonderful. I'm trying yours on next weeks menu.

  3. Interesting! I love homemade buttermilk pancakes and I love to add oats into cakes, muffins, cookies and breads… I'd love to try these. I admit, the sitting it on the counter overnight makes me a bit uneasy – the buttermilk doesn't spoil or smell too strong or anything else like that, from sitting out overnight?

  4. Oh wow. I forgot all about Sue Gregg. My mom used to use her cookbooks. These sound really hearty and good. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Oh these sound wonderful. I'm going to make them tonight for supper.

  6. Okay……I made them and everyone LOVED them. Guess I'll be making these more often. Thank you for this recipe!!!

  7. I just wanted to let you know I found the link to this from your series on grains and it's become a new favorite in our household. My 18 months old son LOVES these pancakes and would possibly eat them for every meal/snack if I would let him. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Yum! Thanks for sharing this recipe at Thrive @ Home!
