Plan ahead the batter needs to chill for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight. These pancakes are incredibly light!
- 2 cups old fashioned oats (or use quick cooking oats)
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar (can add in more sugar for a sweeter pancake)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1⁄2 cups buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted (no substitutes)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- oil (for frying) or butter (for frying)
- In a large bowl combine the first 6 dry ingredients.
- In another smaller bowl whisk together buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla until well blended; add to the dry ingredients, whisk until blended (there might be some small lumps that still remain).
- Cover and chill for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight.
- Heat oil in a skillet.
- Drop about 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet.
- Cook the pancakes until the bottoms are golden brown and bubbles form on top (about 2 minutes).
- Turn the pancakes over and cook until the bottoms are golden brown, brushing the skillet with more oil or butter if necessary.
These pancakes are the BOMB! Yummy. I had used a different recipe last time i made Oatmeal pancakes but this one was even better. My niece even liked them who is very "selective" about what she eats and isn't afraid to say "yuck"! I made a double batch and freeze half between sheets of wax paper in a Ziplock container and put the rest that we didn't eat in the fridge and put in toaster oven or microwave to reheat. Wonderful
I really liked this recipe, my daughter would not eat them. I believe I have found out that she does not like the flavor of buttermilk. She thought they tasted sour, I thought they tasted delicious!
These pancakes are fantastic! My 11 yr old said after one bite that they were really good, and that they had a lot of flavor. I have tried MANY pancake recipes and none had such a reaction. I did use brown sugar instead of white, and whole wheat flour. Kittencal, every recipe I try of yours is a winner! Thanks for sharing.
