Happy Memorial Day! I hope that you’re having the most lovely and relaxing long holiday weekend. I couldn’t resist stopping in today to share this recipe because what would a Monday off work be without pancakes?! A little bit of sleeping in, some coffee in bed or lounging on the couch, a leisurely perusal of the daily paper (or let’s be real, your Instagram feed) and a delicious breakfast to savor – featuring, of course, a tall stack of pancakes – with no work in sight. What could be better?

The truth is, I actually did not make these pancakes on a weekend. I was working from home one Tuesday and in need of a quick lunch to tide me over. I didn’t have many groceries in the fridge and wasn’t in the mood for eggs, so I threw together a pancake batter with what I could find in the pantry. And they were so, so good! Seriously, it makes me wish I could work from home every day, simply so that I could enjoy these pancakes on repeat for lunch. But that’s what these long weekends are for, right?!

These pancakes are like the perfect little combination of whole wheat muffins, oatmeal cookies, and a good classic buttermilk pancake – so, pretty much all of the best things in life! They’re super light and fluffy – a must-have for any pancake I’m gonna make. But they also have the most delicious hearty flavor and texture from plenty of oatmeal and whole wheat flour. This helps to offset the sweetness, so you feel like you’re eating a real meal, rather than dessert. I love the toasty flavor of the rolled oats and had to thrown in some cinnamon, too. One more thing – today we’re making the batter in the blender, so these pancakes come together in no time! Get cooking, and enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend! 🙂

These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Blender Pancakes are an easy treat you can whip up in minutes! Rolled oats, whole wheat flour, and brown sugar combine for a delicious hearty breakfast.

  • You may cook two pancakes at a time, in two pans, to speed up the process.
  • I love to serve these pancakes with fresh berries, peanut butter, and maple syrup.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk or almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups oats, divided
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • canola oil and butter, for cooking

Directions

  1. Place eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Add flour, one cup oats, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Blend until smooth, about fifteen seconds.
  3. Add remaining one cup oats and blend until just combined.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat until hot. Add a bit of oil and a dab of butter and let melt to coat pan.
  5. Using a one half-cup measure, scoop some batter onto the center of the pan.
  6. Let pancake cook until large bubbles appear on the surface, about two minutes.
  7. Carefully flip pancake. Continue cooking until bottom is golden brown, about two more minutes.
  8. Transfer pancake to a plate.
  9. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil and butter to the pan if necessary.
