So Much Better Than IHOP Oatmeal Pancakes!!!

These pancakes have become my family's absolute favorite food for any meal. My husband does a happy dance when I make these and I think that my son's first word was a version of "pancake" (cancakes?)! The whole wheat flour, almond meal and ground flax seed make these pancakes that you can feel good about feeding to your kids! The walnuts and ground flax seed provide the great omega fats that we all need!

*Short cut tip: double the recipe and cook them all up. Freeze the left over pancakes individually wrapped in plastic wrap or wrapped tightly with wax paper between each cake. Pop them (without plastic wrap) in the toaster to thaw/toast, or microwave to thaw and you have instant pancakes for the mornings that you do not have time to make pancakes from scratch! Or, just keep the leftovers in your fridge and I guarantee they will be gone in a couple of days.

Ingredients (recipe yields about 12 pancakes):

1 1/4 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon honey or agave
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup almond meal (if you don't want to do almond meal, you can do all purpose flour)
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 teaspoon baking soda (try to use aluminum free)
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs; beaten (use a fork in a bowl to quickly beat them)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (you can omit nuts if you like)

1. In a large bowl, combine oats, plain yogurt, low fat milk, and honey/agave. Stir in flours, flax, baking soda and salt. Add beaten eggs and mix well. Add chopped walnuts. {the batter will seem thick}

2. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spoon about 1/4 c. batter onto griddle/pan for each pancake. Cook until bubbles on top start to pop, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until both sides are browned.

We like to serve these warm with Grade B maple syrup, fresh strawberries, and just a small squirt of whipped cream!



  1. We just made these as a healthy first day of school treat. My kids are munching on them in the other room, telling me, cheeks packed with pancake munch, that they are delicious!
