DBF loves pancakes, oatmeal and blueberries, so why not combine them all. The oatmeal gives the pancakes a different texture but also makes them somewhat "heart-healthy." I you prefer your pancakes normal color and not purple, use the optional method for adding the berries.
- 1 1⁄4 cups old-fashioned oatmeal (not instant)
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- Mix oatmeal and buttermilk.
- Add eggs.
- Combine dry ingredients separately.
- Add to the oatmeal mixture.
- Stir in the butter.
- Gently stir in the blueberries (or add 10-12 blueberries to each pancakes after pouring the batter on the griddle).
- Cook on hot greased griddle until bubbles show through.
- Flip and cook on other side until golden brown.
I accidentally used a cup & 1/2 instead of 1/4 of oats and it still turned out fine. The first time I made them I found the batter really runny but maybe I used too much butter, but also, the 2nd time around I let the oats soak in the milk for about 10 minutes and that seemed to really help soak up some liquid. I also added about 1/4 tsp of baking powder to help the pancakes puff up more, which worked great. I increased the sugar by 1/2 T as well. These are super hardy yummy breakfast and I'll continue to make them! Thanks!
These were wonderful even though I did not use blueberries! I took Rachie's suggestions. I soaked the oats for about 20 min. in the buttermilk, used 1 1/2 T. sugar, and 1 1/4 tsp. baking SODA. I will definately make these again and again!!!
These were nice, not too sweet but quite dense, a lovely filling brekky..we topped ours with cream cheese & jam. Thanks for posting!
