Home » Food » Getting Healthy with Oatmeal Pancakes

I have been using the same pancake recipe for a long long time and everyone has been happy.

But last weekend, I was in Ottawa at the Landsdowne Farmers Market and came across a vendor (Castor River Farms) selling oats, oat flour, and other grains. I stopped and noticed a recipe for oatmeal pancakes. I was intrigued so I purchased oats and the oat flour that I needed for the recipe.

Oats and Oat Flour

I returned home and made the oatmeal pancakes for dinner. Actually I made two batches. One batch was made with the FRESH oats from the vendor at the farmers market and one batch was made with the Quaker Oats bag from my pantry.

I asked three people to tell me which one was the one with the FRESH OATS…two out of three got it right.The texture was chewier, the pancake was denser and all in all it was better tasting pancake.

Oatmeal Pancakes

I love taste tests…we have compared real oreos vs. fake oreos, organic milk vs. non organic milk and now the oatmeal pancakes. The kids think I’m nuts. (but in a good way).

Here’s the recipe for Oatmeal Pancakes:

1 1/2 cups of freshly rolled oats

2 cups of milk (dairy, soy or almond)

1 cup oat flour

1 tbsp maple syrup or honey

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp baking powder

1 egg, beaten

1/4 oil

Let oats and milk sit for at least 10 minutes. Mix ingredients 3-7 together, then add to oatmeal mixture. Add egg and oil and mix well. Makes 10-12 pancakes. Note: They are very filling

This recipe is from Castor River Farms, 2696 9th Line road, Metcalfe.

They are a regular vendor at the Ottawa Landsdowne Farmers Market where I will be returning, to buy more oats!!

Happy Pancakes!!

    sounds good. I make pancakes almost every Sunday morning. I will probably add a few choc. chips to my recipe. (And where can you buy oat flour- I don’t think I’ve seen it but i’ve never looked for it either.

    I got to tell you this… this pancakes can be done in a sweet or salty way. I try them as tortillas with beans-cheese. Made them of just oats and water. then, I did experiment with oats with any maple or sugar or honey or any bottle sweet ready to pour. I also try with carnation milk and/or goat milk, almonds milk,…etc (any kind of milk) or my salty version of oat, milk and jalapeno peppers.? OHHH yes I love spicy food. This oat can even eaten as pizza pan! oh my goodness im getting hungry…well I hope u can keep improvising…is very rewarding even as waffles …or in any shape. catch u later if any questions….
