Quick Oatmeal Pancakes are weekend brunch must in our house! Soft, fluffy and absolutely addictive. They’re so fast and easy to make that I promise they’ll quickly become one of your go-to breakfasts!
On the weekends we have smoothies (of course) and then make BIG batches of these Quick Oatmeal Pancakes. What makes them so quick? You just toss all the ingredients in a blender, pulse, puree and pour into your favorite saute pan or even this super cute emoji pancake pan one of our friends gave the kids for Christmas.
The batter is packed not only with plenty of protein from the eggs and milk (you can also use almond, flax, soy, oat or your favorite plant based milk) plus nutrient dense oats which offer plenty of fiber is these Quick Oatmeal Pancakes.
You can use any type of oil in this recipe (it’s just a little), so if you have unrefined coconut oil use it. The coconut oil gives the pancakes a mild coconut flavor which also imparts a touch of sweetness in every singe bite. Mentioning sweetness, this pancake recipe doesn’t include any added sugar, so if you want to sweeten them up you can top with dairy free coconut whipped cream, fresh berries or bananas, maple syrup, honey or even this naturally sweet raspberry sauce.
