A hearty pancake that provides over 6 grams of fiber per serving. I like to add blueberries to the batter. Very kid-friendly recipe!
A hearty pancake that provides over 6 grams of fiber per serving. I like to add blueberries to the batter. Very kid-friendly recipe!
Number of Servings: 4
1 1/4 cup Old Fashioned Quaker Oats 1 1/4 cup skim milk (can use substitute buttermilk for half the milk) 1 large egg 1 Tbsp light olive oil 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 tsp baking powder
In a medium bowl, mix oats with milk, let stand 5 minutes. Add egg and oil, then mix. Add dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Drop by 1/4 cup measure, flatten and shape a bit, and cook on hot, nonstick skillet until brown. Flip and cook on the other side until golden. Optional: For an antioxidant boost, add 1/2 cup blueberries to the batter before cooking (not included in nutrition count). Top with topping of choice: maple syrup, preserves, yogurt, applesauce, etc (not included in nutrition count.)
I think these would be a little bland if the recipe was followed strictly, but they were delicious when I followed the suggestions above: applesauce instead of olive oil, and a little brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. I served these with fresh strawberries.
If you add splenda, pumpkin pie spice, a bit of low calorie apple sauce for some added moisture and extra baking powder, this is a wonderful breakfast choice. Comes out fluffier and softer. It keeps me full and gives me the energy I need to complete my workout in the morning. Will make often.
I've made these twice. The first time i followed the recipe exactly and they were okay but a bit bland and heavy but very filling. The next time i added 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 cup cooked pumpkin and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. They were very nice with low sugar apple butter on top. I will make these again.
How many of the pancakes (using 1/4 cup) make a serving? Usually it's 2, but I thought you might have figured it differently.
Reply from CTCLOUGH(7/27/08) Yes, there are 2 pancakes in a serving. When I made them yesterday, the recipe yielded 8 pancakes. I use a generous 1/4 cup to drop them. They are very filling for the calories!
I LOVE oatmeal, and I love these! I put a tiny bit of brown sugar and some cinnamon in mine as well as a splenda packet. I'd def make them again, next time I'm going to add some diced apples. They remind me of those oatmeal breakfast bars by quaker i think, except these are less sugary/better for u.
I make these all the time now for myself and my kids! Everyone loves them!!! For a special treat for the kids sometimes I add a couple of chocolate chips! yes that adds calories but they love them!!!
Everyone is right they are bland. I just got mine out the pan and tried one, but ya know, its not always about flavor. I like them b/c they are filling and that's what i am looking for something to keep me full until lunchtime and this will do it. i'd make them again and freeze some for later.
I thought this was really pretty good. I did add some splenda, some vanilla extract, some cinnamon, and some Brummel and brown at the end, but I wouldn't have known where to start without this recipe. The pancakes I cooked were good and filling.
I made this for breakfast this morning, and it was terrific! The only reason I didn't give it a five star rating was because I took the advice of others who tried it and added 1 tbs. of natural cane sugar, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
Delicious! We made this for a last minute dinner tonight and really enjoyed them. We have 2 portions in the freezer now. We did add blueberries and vanilla. I had it with my Dannon Light & Fit Yogurt (peach) and my husband had maple syrup. Thanks!
I made these today with the addition of 4 tablespoons of sugar free rasberry jam and i used 1 tablespoon of canola oil instead, i also rounded out the measurements to 8 ounces of 2% milk and 100 grams each of the flour and oats, came out prefecly, cooked them low and slow, were really moist.
I added a sprinkle of salt to the batter and some cinnamon. My daughter who does not like oatmeal liked this pancake, the recipe made 5 but 1 was enough for my daughter, and they refrigerate and heat up nicely. A keeper for us.
Something this awful has _got_ to be good for you . I followed the recipe exactly and found the pancakes to be bland and heavy. My first thought was to add sugar (or Splenda) the next time. I recommend trying the variations others have posted.
Coming from a chef, this is the worst pancake recipe ever. The batter was way too thick, very heavy and extremely bland. This is the first recipe i've followed in a long time to see how online recipes are. I just made an account to warn people in the future to not follow this awful recipe.
These were a huge hit among my kids. They are much more filling and healthier than regular pancakes. These are going to replace Aunt Jemima pancake mix. I am going to have fun with the variances given above. Thanks for sharing.
I used vanilla almond milk rather than cow's milk, and added oat bran for even more fiber, and a little salt so that they were savory - quite nice with sliced turkey breast. I cannot imagine liking them with traditional "pancake" things like fruit or syrup.
Since I am the only one who eats healthy in our house I am going to make up all the batter into pancakes and then freeze the extras and heat them in the toaster later when I want another serving....thanks for a great recipe!
I made these this morning and I loved them. I subbed egg beaters for the egg and unsweetened applesauce for the oil. Yes, and added pumpkin pie spice. It's a great basic recipe. I served my two pancakes with a half banana sliced in between and on top, and added 2 Tbs unsweetened syrup and yummy!
I halved the recipe because there is only 2 of us. used 1 whole egg, and added extra vanilla, sugar,cinnamon, and blueberries. I think the extra amount of egg made them lighter than described ,slightly heavy but delicious!
I tried these but probably will not make them again. They really are filling and I was only able to eat half a serving. They were not horrible tasting and maybe I could get used to them, but probably will never be a favorite.
I thought these were absolutely delicious! I have made wholewheat pancakes before, but they were never like (real) pancakes. These were yummy! Next time I am going to flatten them a little as I had a hard time cooking them through all the way
We made these today and they are very filling. As for taste, we added 3 packets of Splenda. We made them with fresh blueberries and would definitly add that again for flavor. Overall its a good breakfast option to leave you feeling full until lunch!
this recipes needs some spices for our family....I would use cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin spices probably but I think a good on the go breakfast as they could be frozen and popped in toaster if right size once precooked - 3/2/14
The pancakes by themselves are plain, but in some ways that is good because you can add whatever topping you want, make them sweet or savory :) Very fulling. Some modifications; added vanilla essence and replaces olive oil with low fat berry yogurt :D
When I make protien pancakes, I don't use flour. I grind the oatmeal for twenty seconds in the coffee grinder. Then I use a little apple sauce, cinnamon, vanilla and/or greek yogurt. These can also be reasonable substitutes for syrup. - 10/21/13
YUMMY! the pancakes were very good, I made them for my breakfast and also made the rest of the batter to freeze the extra servings for weekday mornings. I am hoping it is as good warmed up as it was this morning!
Hey dear i have a amazing online working site for ladies housewife can make money just working on internet infew hours em a housewife & i also make a lot of money from this for more details......visit.....Buzz55. com
Made these with the added suggestions below of applesauce instead of oil, and added the vanilla and cinnamon. Left sugar out it makes me crave carbs. Added sliced bannana to batter and topped with mixed berries. Used a blend of different flours due to wheat sensitivity
They are just OK. Maybe it just feel strange to chew oatmeal and whole wheat flour, like too much fiber. A question of habits, I guess. I did the original recipie plus one Tbsp brown sugar, one shreded apple, one Tbsp Stevia.
I made these with a few substitutions. I used cinnamon applesauce instead of oil. I also added vanilla, cinnamon, and splenda. They were still slightly bland but overall they were good. My daughter loved them. I think they would be good with banana or apple either in the batter or on top.
YUMM!! My mom had several leftover batter (from cake) to work on and I instantly wanted to try making this.I improvised quite a lot on the ingredients (and the measurements) though since I'm In Indonesia and several items are not available. I love it, so does my mum!!
1/4 cup natural applesauce, 1 teaspoon olive oil, two ripe bananas, 14 crushed natural almonds. Wasn't sure of my baking powder's freshness, so an extra pinch baking soda, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/4 cup whole milk w a splash of water & a drop or two of vinegar. :)
This was good in terms of nutrition. I do not care for a lot of stuff on my pancakes. I found this lacking flavor so next time I would add some cinnamon and diced apples. It is a very dense pancake, so if you are looking for light and fluffy-look elsewhere
I took other's advice and added 1/2 cup of pumpkin, about an extra 1/2 cup of milk and spices (pumpkin pie and vanilla) and a few choc chips. I know I've altered the calorie count...but worth it :)
Added blueberries to the batter. Used the comment suggestions of vanilla and cinnamon. Used pomgranite-apple sauce instead of oil and lowfat soy milk. Also added some freshly milled flax and chia seeds to make it a lil healhier. Topped it with Pomgranite-apple sauce. Will make again!
It's a great starter recipe to play around with. I used some Agave Nectar to sweeten up the batter, added cinnamon and ground flax. They definitely needed topping, I didn't have anything so I just spread some peanut butter on top. Next time I will add apple sauce or even diced apples.
I halved the recipe and served both dh and I and it was still filling/satisfying. Added 1 tbsp each of peanut butter and sunflower seeds. Used 1 egg white. Also used blend of soy and white flours. Thanks for the yummy recipe.
After using my handy dandy recipe converter (only wanted 1 serving) and making a few suggested modifications (1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice, 3/4 tsp Truvia) and adding something of my own craving (1/2 tsp vanilla extract). My converter ommitted the egg, but I added 1 tbsp. egg substitute. Outstanding!!!
I tried this with the applesauce, brown sugar a vanilla and they were great. My husband is terrified of any 'health' food recipes but he tried it and enjoyed. We ate ours plain this morning but we will be trying all sorts of toppings, like fruit or sugar free jam! Thanks for a great recipe!
This recipe was so good with a few changes!! I added 1 tbsp sugar and liberal shakes of chai masala and cinnamon. Super filling. Served mine with fresh strawberries in sugar. I ran out of baking powder so I went without--they were very dense but still enjoyable.
These pancakes don't look very appealing, but they taste just fine. I also added pumpkin pie spice, about a half of teaspoon of vanilla and tossed some cranberries on hand in the pancakes. Really filling and seasonally tasteful:)
Good and filling. I got 5 servings of 2 pancakes each. Added 1/2 tsp vanilla and cinnamon, 1 T brown sugar, and added another 1/2 cup of blueberries. Next time: I'd try adding 2 tsp of baking powder to the oatmeal and milk and let in sit for 10-15 min to let the pancakes get more fluffy.
Definitely very filling. I added sweeteners though cos the mix was bland on its own. Didnt cook it for long so I had the hard crust with a little area in the middle being moist. Would make it again, the same way.
Took the advice of other reviewers. Used applesauce instead of oil and added vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar and a dash of Splenda. Also added blueberries. These are not your typical light and fluffy pancakes but I did like them very much with those minor adjustments!
There are various opinions on this recipe just on the first page--I love the idea of these pancakes. A question that is really important to my family. We like to spread a thin layer of a nut butter on pancakes, roll them up and eat them that way. Are these pancakes too heavy to roll?
Any pancake I make has cinnamon or vanilla--or both--added to it; in my family, pancakes are expected to have a certain aroma! LOL... so I don't know how bland it would be, but I will say this: my roommate is VERY picky, and he came back for seconds--and we were out of his favorite syrup! LOL
These were bland. I even added baking powder, blue berries, splenda, and almond extract as some others suggested and they still were heavy and needed something. Probably salt, but I need to watch my sodium, so... I think I will find better recipe rather than try to fix this one.
I added pumpkin pie spice and 1 Tbsp of raw honey. I also added 1/4 cup of raisins. This is a very heavy pancake and I was able to make 5 (1/2 cup) servings out of the batch. I still found that they were a bit bland but will defintely make again and tweak it to my liking. Very filling!
I love this basic recipe. Today I used a bit of cinnamon in the mix, and topped my serving with 1/4 cup of shredded apple and then drizzled it with 1 tsp agave nectar. Sturdy, too! I've never been able to flip a pretty standard pancake.
