Oatmeal Pancake Recipe

Oatmeal Pancake

with Mashed Banana

dsc03092.jpg

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup Quaker quick oats* +  **
  • 1/3 cup egg whites (the kind in the carton is best since there’s no onion powder in it like EggBeaters – ewwww)***
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Optional: 1/2 a mashed banana or 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • Toppings to taste!

*You can use any amount of oats/whites – 1/4 a cup of each (~100 calories) or 1/3 or 1/2 cup each (~150 + 200 calories).

**You can use old fashioned rolled oats too, but you will want to soak them in the egg whites for at least 15 minutes – or overnight in the fridge

***You can use a whole egg, but I don’t think the pancake comes out as well, but it DOES work. Or real egg whites, but you’d probably need 2-3 eggs’ worth

  1. Mix together oats and egg whites with baking powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a bowl. Optional: add half a mashed banana to the batter.
  2. Preheat a skillet, spray with non-stick spray, and pour your batter in while shaping it into a large disc “pancake” with a spoon.
  3. When you can shake it around in the pan, it’s time to flip.
  4. Once cooked through, top with syrup, peanut butter, canned pumpkin, fresh fruit or my personal favorite – mashed banana and maple syrup!

My niece turned me on to your blog and these pancakes. We're also oatmeal freaks, and everyone loved these. I told my husband I might like them better than regular pancakes, but he's not quite ready to go that far ; ) I'm going to make a big batch and freeze them. My 6 year old always wants pancakes in the middle of the week when we're too busy in the morning. These pancakes are a perfect way to pack in lots of nutrition in her favorite forms – pancakes AND oatmeal! And, she can just pick them up because, apparently, utensils are just for moving around on the table. Thanks~

Stephanie,

So glad you like them!! Let me know how freezing goes – sounds like a good idea. They are a bit complicated during the morning rush :)

Hi Kath,

I tried making this today and I was really excited to try them because I love pancakes but mine tasted very moist and “oaty” I guess? Haha I don’t know how to explain, but yours look like actual pancakes and I’m sure they probably tasted better than mine, too. Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong? :(

Nancy,
They are rather oaty and aren’t as creamy and bread like as regular pancakes. Did you add the mashed banana to the batter? I usually add about 1/3 of my banana and find that helps soften the pancake. See if that helps!

0H MY G00DNESS GRACI0US! Kath…these are DELICI0US! I finally had time because my morning classes were cancelled yesterday and I made oatmeal pancakes and because I didn’t have quick cooking oats, I just used 1/3 cup of an all natural low-sugar, apple-cinnamon instant pack…And they were absolutely divine! =] With my second batch (I got my brother to eat them who L0VED THEM…which was a victory in and of itself bc they’re uber healthful) I beat the egg whites with the baking soda first, and got them really fluffy (not peaks, but foamy, almost) and it stretched the batter into making 3 pancakes! YUM! Thanks so much again for the recipe! And just one quick question: Is the calorie count 150 kcals for 1, or for the 1/3 oats entire batch?

[PS] I AD0RE ALM0NDS and tried adding in some slivered almonds and 1/8 tsp of almond extract and they were S00000 YUMMY! =]

L0VE and G00D CHEER,

Julz,
I’m so happy you like them!!!! The recipe I use is 1/3 cup oats and 1/3 cup whites along with the cinnamon, vanilla and baking powder. This makes one large pancake that is about 150 kcal.

I absolutely love this recipe!!! I have another tasty version I’d like to share! I take a package of Kashi Go Lean instant oats(Creamy Vanilla flavor is best for this) and mix it with 2 egg whites, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, For about 200 calories you get one yummy, MASSIVE pancake!!! (or two normal sized!) I also recently tried it with Quaker Simple Harvest Apple Cinnamon. Makes perfect Apple Cinnamon pancakes! Delicious!!! =)

10 Clara February 19, 2008 at 10:15 pm

Hey kath – that recipe looks really yummy, I can’t wait to try it!

Quick question – approx how many egg whites equal 1/3 cup of them?
Also, do you know of a good egg substitute for a vegan version of the pancake?
Thanks!! :)

Reply

11 Marla February 28, 2012 at 7:34 pm

For egg white sub use 1 tbls agar powder (not flakes) dissolved in 1 tbls water.

YOu can find agar powder in the natural/whole foods section f the grocery store. Most likely at whole foods. I found mine at the Indian store.

12 Kath February 20, 2008 at 5:22 am

Clara,
I think 1/4 of a cup = 1 egg white, so 1/3 would be just a little more. If you’re using real eggs, I’d make the 1/4 a cup version – or you could do 1/2 a cup and use 2 egg whites. I’m not sure which egg subs. are vegan. A quick Google search brought me no luck finding one. Good luck!

13 BethT February 25, 2008 at 4:05 pm

I recently asked you whether regular oats (not quick) would work for these, and you suggested letting them soak overnight. I looked at some of your previous posts and when you let them soak overnight, it appears you didn’t add the baking powder and spices until the morning? If so, how long would you let the fully mixed batter sit before cooking?

Reply

14 Kath February 25, 2008 at 8:54 pm

BethT,
You’re absolutely right – you don’t want to add the baking powder until the last minute. Let the eggs/oats soak, but wait on everything else.

Hope that helps!

Kath I love these!! I make the “batter” before I go for my run and then pour it in the pan when I get back and oooeee they are amazing esp no that it is warmer and a hot bowl of oatmeal isnt as appealing. Everytime I sit down with my pumpkin pancake I cannot believe that I am eating this HUGE pancake for 250 calories!! Thank you!

Reply

16 Sami July 16, 2008 at 4:36 pm

Hey Kath, I’m making this for breakfast. =]
I was wondering. . .
Is the calorie amount given with or without the added banana in the batter?
I’m assuming the toppings were left off of your estimate.

Thanks, this will really help with my calorie target.

Reply

17 Kath July 16, 2008 at 8:19 pm

Sami ,
It’s without the banana –
100 for oats
40ish for egg whites
10ish buffer/vanilla?

HI,
I came across your recipe searching for an oat/no flour banana pancake. My cousin made me some and I ate them all week long as a snack cold right out of the fridge! The banana made them sweet. I preferrred hers to any cookie I could have had in the house! The only thing is she couldn’t give me her exact recipe. Ugh! So yours sounds interesting, but others I read used a blender to mix everything. Do you think mixing them with a mixer and adding a little water or milk might make them less chunky. I would not like the gritty oats, I want them more true to pancake texture. What do you recommend? Thanks. I might experiment before I get your answer. I’ll let you know of my success or failure.
Lori

19 Kath July 19, 2008 at 8:05 pm

Lori ,
Yes, blending would definitely make a finer consistency. I would also maybe turn the oats to a “flour” before adding the liquids – and perhaps increase the liquid a bit? Lemme know how it turns out!

20 Lori July 20, 2008 at 7:31 am

How do I turn the oats to a flour? Is that the soaking over night method?
For fun I made a few last night. I measured 1/3 cup of oats, 1 egg, 1 egg white, 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 1 and 1/3 bananas. I did not have baking powder. I mixed it by hand. It looked too liquidy, so I took 3 small handfuls of oats to thicken it up. Of course I used cinnamon. It was a bit gritty, but pretty tasty. I wrapped some up and tasted them cold the way I ate my cousins and it tasted less gritty, more bread like.
What is the purpose of the baking powder? Can you tell I am not a cook? Let me know how to make the oats more flour like.
My 7 year old liked them and he is a hard critic, so I consider it a success. I still would like to perfect it. I also love pumpkin. Is the puree the stuff from the can?
Lori

21 Kath July 20, 2008 at 8:43 am

Lori ,
I just mean pulverize them in your blender for food processor into a finer texture before you add the wet ingredients. Baking powder helps to create puff and rise in the pancake – without it you’d get something flatter than a pancake!

Hi, Kath,

These pancakes are so good! When I make these, I use three parts oat bran and one part oats for texture. I beat the egg whites with a spoon before adding in the banana, oats, and baking powder. This makes them incredibly poofy and even nicely browned (like real pancakes!). Thanks for the great recipe!

I mixed up the batter without the banana or baking powder tonight and can’t wait to try a lovely pancake in the morning! I’m not going to add the banana at all, but rather top it with warm cinnamon apples, maybe some walnuts and a dollop of vanilla yogurt as well. Thanks for the recipe!

Excellent! Super easy to make – I added organic frozen wild blueberries (Trader Joe’s) and topped with unsweetened natural applesauce. Delish!!
Just a suggestion- Baking powder will often contain ALUMINUM, much safer to buy a brand (Rumford, Argo, etc.) that is aluminum free! (Since every serving contains 1/2 teaspoon…)
I love this recipe, and will make it often. Thank you!!

Hi Kath!
I have two questions for you…. One is, if i mixed in blueberries to this recipe, would they be like blueberry pancakes?

Wow! This was so good! I eat a bowl of oatmeal almost everyday and Ive been getting really bored with it, until now. And on top of it, im getting protein from the egg whites! I used 1/3 cup oatmeal, 2 egg whites (that i separated myself), vanilla, cinnamon and I mashed 1/2 banana and put it in mix then saved the other 1/2 and mashed that with light maple syrup for the topping which was delicious. I also, waited until last second to mix in the 1/2 tsp of baking powder. It cooked quick and came out great! Thanks!!

I used cornstarch instead of baking powder because I have celiac disease.
It was great!
I didn’t have to let it sit over night just for like maybe 5 minutes I let it sit there!
Thank you!

Just discovered your blog this past week and this is the second recipe I’ve made and loved it! To be honest I got burnt out on bananas and oatmeal when I was about 10. I just ate them so much I started to dislike them. So I was shocked at how much I enjoyed these pancakes! I blended the oatmeal, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, and baking powder to make it less oatmealy. Then I stirred the banana in and whisked it all together to amp up the fluff. It worked great. My pancakes were as fluffy as the real thing! I topped with honey and sliced bananas. Thanks for turning me back on to oatmeal and bananas! :-)

Kathy,

I am an amateur bodybuilder and were looking for different recipes to get a good eggwhite & oatmeal breakfast for cutting, because I hate the taste of oatmeal. Just wanted to say thank you! I used 14 ounces of eggwhites and 1 1/2 cups oat meal. Very very useful recipe so I can wake up and eat vs. having to cook eggs upon rolling out of bed. Just thought you’d like to hear this is beneficial to more then just the typical female trying to eat healthy. I used sugar free jelly as a topper… WOW! love it! (:

Delicious! Whip the egg whites until frothy first so the pancake can fluff up and blend the oats for a more pancake like consistency. Instead of the banana I added a scoop of banana nut protein powder and it was tasty! Yum, I will definitely make these again.

Hello! I was wondering if this would work if I added a scoop of whey protein to the mix? How about quark (a type of soft cheese similar to cream cheese)?
Thanks.

I am housesitting for a wheat free household so that is how I found your wonderful recipe. I ground the oats added three whipped egg whites(for 1/2 cup of oats) and one mashed banana, I also added the three yolks. These were delicious.
On an aside, while I was cooking at a vegan workshop this summer I came across flaxseed as an egg substitute (1 1/2 to 2 tbls of flaxseeds,whole or ground to 1/4 warm water, let stand for 30 minutes) it works amazingly well and is so good for you.

I just made these, and I added blueberries to them! They were phenomenal. I think I’m in love with you.

I tried these once before and wasn’t into the oat-egg white omlet aspect Bahia time I ground the oats in my vitamix first and they were perfect!!

I’ve shared my adaptation of this one, along with a link to this post, on my blog. Thanks again for such a versatile recipe. I love it and it’s a favorite in my house! http://theclumsyhousewife.blogspot.com/2013/03/oatmeal-pancakes.html

Was looking for a new breakfast alternative for myself and my 2 year old. He loves oatmeal and bananas (this child wakes up at 3am asking for them!). I’m going to make these in the morning and see how much he likes them…hoping he does because we need something new in our routine. Love that they are so healthy too…being pregnant I find myself craving the need for healthier meals and I’m really looking forward to these!

I tried these but mixed it up a bit, I used oat flour (oats just blended up) half a cup, 1/4 of a cup of oats, 2 large egg whites and cinnamon, wackedin the pan then under te grill to cook the top, flip it for a while top with small layer of peanut butter and a mashed banana, heaven.

I have an unhealthy obsession with pancakes lately. I am gluten free and dairy free. I am going to use GF oats but like to use whole eggs. How many eggs do you think for this recipe?

Just one egg per pancake

This was really good! I used 1 egg white and 1/4 instant oats, and then everything thing else with some cinnomon stick, and ground it all up in the food processor. After taking one bite, I was like, “I SHOULD HAVE DOUBLED THIS!”–not because it wasn’t filling, but because it was so surprisingly great! I will definitely be making this again…

Hi Kath!

I saw your recipe while searching for oatmeal topping ideas. I have recently gone gluten free (I havent really mastered the GF baking part yet) and was very excited to find it! I made them for dinner with GF oatmeal, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie seasoning. I topped it with cream cheese (how my mom made pumpkin muffins when I was a kid) and it was fabulous! I was able to get my bread craving satisfied without buying expensive GF stuff! And I love how healthy and filling they are! Thank you so much for the recipe – I will definitely be making them again!

I have about 4-5 pears that are going to go bad if I dont use them, can I do something similar to the recipe above using the pears? I do not want to have to make a dessert out of them. I was thinking of putting them in the food processor and getting them apple sauce consistency. FYI- I do not currently have apples in the house.

Also, I have tried this recipe before and it was very tasty!

I made this recipe with apple and cinnamon, but I found it tasted bland. Luckily, pineapple was on the table! It was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten in my whole entire life!!!!! It was so good with pineapple!!!!

Thank you for this recipe! My son loves pancakes (and so do I because he can feed them to himself). I have been looking for a way for him to feed himself oatmeal since he really likes blueberry oatmeal. I have been looking for an oatmeal pancake recipe that is just oats and not oats+flour+whatever else is needed. This will be a hit!

Hi Kath! Thank you for this recipe – its quick and DELICIOUS! i’ve tried other recipes but nothing turned out like as yours. Can’t believe how easy and yummy this are!

Thanks!

I also made it and loved it. – thanks for the great recipe! I’ll be using this a lot when I feel like comfort food without the calories!

Thanks for the video-I found it very helpful! I put homemade applesauce on top instead of banana-delicious!

Just made one, so good. Thank you for the idea. I used a combo of mashed banana and peanut butter for the topping. Definately will be making these again.

I found this recipe over a year ago and have been in love ever since. I make them once or twice a week! They are so quick to make. Before the pan is done heating the batter is ready to go. I usually triple the recipe for 6 good sized pancakes. I not only love the nutritional benefits of the egg whites, oatmeal, cinnamon and banana but they taste great without syrup. My toddlers gobble them up and they are good for when you are on the go.
