Easiest Oatmeal Pancakes You'll Ever Make!

I was tired of plain pancakes and I knew there were recipes out there for Hearty Oatmeal Pancakes, but were more complicated than I wanted to do- I decided to cheat and blend two ready made products and it turned out GREAT! So I decided I should share this with you. Hope you like it!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (1 5/8 ounce) package instant banana bread oatmeal
  • 1 -2 cup pancake mix (just add___type)


  1. Follow the directions for pancake mixture, but add enough water to help mix in the package of instant oatmeal as well - until it is the right consistency (should look like a thick cake batter)
  2. Next heat your fry pan or griddle until hot enough to spray oil onto surface. Turn down heat to medium and use a spray on oil- lightly coating your surface. Let sit a few seconds and pour on your batter. Cook until light golden brown and flip and repeat. Then top with your favorite topping and ENJOY!
  3. (p.s. Try other flavors of instant oatmeal if you like, this is just the one I used :) ).

I just made these this morning for my grandson and me and they were delicious. I hate pancakes with no texture and these are SO easy. I wondered if there was already a recipe for them and I found yours. We had apple and cinnamon pancakes. :)) Great way for quick, flavorful, nicely textured pancakes.

Great pancakes! I was looking for an easy substitue for recipe#331629 since I don't always have buttermilk on hand and my 4-year-old LOVES oatmeal pancakes. I tried your recipe this morning and everyone loved it! It's much more like regular pancakes than my recipe; I'd never have been able to tell they were oatmeal pancakes. We used Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal but I'm dying to try banana and other flavors, too! These will definitely be made many times over. Thanks for sharing your great idea!
