Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Nom-Rating: ***** (5/5)

I have a new favorite thing.

It’s called cooking without a recipe.


I love it.

Just yesterday I made curried shrimp with mango and jalapeño quinoa for dinner.

From memory.

Then, for dessert, I made 3-2-1 Shortcakes.

Also from memory.


Simplifying life is the best.

Another recipe that is soooooo easy that it can be committed to memory after making it only once (and so delicious that you’ll actually want to) is this  super-healthy whole wheat oatmeal pancake recipe.

I’ve already made it at least four times in the last month!

I’ve eaten these pancakes with chocolate chips.




Strawberries and yogurt.


And most recently with cinnamon roll glaze…those didn’t survive long enough to get a picture. Yum.

Verdict: Everyone needs a go-to recipe for pancakes. I love this one because it uses whole wheat flour and oatmeal as the base and a banana as the sweetener. Add in some peanut butter for protein and you absolutely cannot go wrong with this recipe!

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes


  • 1 mashed banana (the riper, the better)
  • 1 cup oats (any kind)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs flax
  • 1/2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 vanilla
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (optional, lighter pancakes without)
  • 1 cup milk (sometimes it takes more, just add until you like the consistency of the batter)
  • cinnamon (to taste, probably somewhere around 1 tsp)
  • add-ins (chocolate chips, blueberries, pecans, etc)


  1. Add everything to a bowl and mix.
  2. After you have added enough milk to make the batter a proper consistency, pour into circles on a griddle or into a frying pan.
  3. Sprinkle any add-ins on top of cooking pancakes.
  4. Allow to cook until little bubbles form on the top.
  5. Flip.
  6. Allow to cook until brown on the underside.
  7. Add any sort of topping that you would like...butter and syrup, strawberries, blackberries, peanut butter, etc. It's all delicious!

    One of my favorites – a healthy, wholesome pancake (okay, I’m not counting the “add-ins”)! You neglected to mention that you may also build muscles as you flip, plate and carry them to the table as well! : P
