Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes are made with healthy ingredients like oats, whole wheat flour and yogurt, so they’re dense, hearty and filling!

Hi Friends!

It’s time for another recipe refresher! I first published this recipe over 2 years ago and it’s still my go-to pancake recipe, so I think that warrants re-sharing it.  These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes are not for everyone. If fluffy Bisquick-style pancakes are your thing (like my hubby), these probably aren’t for you. I love them because they’re dense, hearty, filling and packed with healthy ingredients!

I made a batch of these to snack on yesterday so I thought I’d snap a few updated pics and share the goodness with all of you.

Here’s the recipe:

This usually makes about 8 pancakes. Batter will be thick! Make sure you flip them a few times to let them cook all the way through!

I love them topped with nut butter and fresh fruit, but I also eat them plain before workouts and occasionally make my own fruit syrup to drizzle on top!

Feel free to have fun with mix-ins as well! Add some chia seeds, chocolate chips, chopped almonds or fresh fruit to the batter to change things up!
