Oatmeal Blender Pancakes
I’m not kidding when I say that these Oatmeal Blender Pancakes are almost identical in prep time to using some boxed mix. They are ridiculously easy to mix together.
If you have kids who you are trying to keep busy while you work on breakfast, I recommend letting them pulse the blender once you get all the ingredients in the blender. My kids love pulsing a blender and watching it mix and then they get rewarded with pancakes! What’s not to love?!
The secret to making these pancakes a little extra special is to start the blending process with mostly rolled oats. They pulse up into a light oat flour that has a bit more flavor and texture than your standard flour. I also add some peanut butter, cinnamon, and vanilla to round out the pancakes. Yum, right?!
Top these blender pancakes as you do with butter and syrup or whipped cream and berries? So fast and easy! Must try!
- Preheat a griddle or large skillet to medium low heat.
- In a blender, add the oats and flour and pulse until the oats are in a coarse meal.
- Add other ingredients and blend until the batter is smooth. Use a spoon to stir around the edges if there are any dry spots in the blender where the batter isn’t mixing. The batter should be pourable. If it seems too thick, add more milk by the tablespoon until it thins out.
- Cook pancakes on a griddle with a little butter for 2-3 minutes per side. Flip the pancakes when they firm up around the edges and start to bubble.
- Serve pancakes topped with butter and drizzled with maple syrup.
These pancakes actually keep really well in the fridge for a few days. Reheat them in a low-heat skillet for a quick breakfast!
How to Make Oatmeal Blender Pancakes
Start these guys with just rolled oats in a blender. Easy right?
Pulse those a few times until they turn into a coarse flour or meal. If you add the other ingredients before you do this, the oats won’t blend completely into a flour.
Now you can add your other stuff though! I like to add my dry stuff first and pulse a few times to mix it together well.
Then you can add the milk and egg and blend like crazy until the batter comes together!
Hot tip: While you are blending, there might be a few dry spots around the edges of the blender where the batter isn’t mixing well. Use a spoon to stir those dry spots into the batter.
This batter should be easily pourable. If it seems too thick, add more milk by the tablespoon to thin it out.
Cooking the Blender Pancakes
I like to cook these guys in butter over medium-low heat on a griddle. You could just use a large skillet though if you wanted and size them however you like. I shoot for about 1/3 cup of batter per pancake which works out to a medium-sized pancake. You should get about 8 out of the recipe.
Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes per side. When the edges are firming up and some bubbles are forming, it’s time to flip!
Serve these oatmeal blender pancakes with any and all toppings you would like. I kept it simple though with just butter and syrup!
Blend it up and eat it up!
