Homemade Oatmeal Pancake Mix

We like pancakes in our house. We usually eat them at least once a week. I like variety, so I have several pancake recipes that I make.

I found this recipe several years ago. Occasionally I will make up a big batch of this mix to have on hand. It makes making pancakes so much quicker and easier. I can have pancakes in no time when I have a mix like this one hand.

Having mixes like this on hand also is much cheaper and healthier than store bought ones.

I like this recipe because the oatmeal in it makes it a little heartier but you grind the oatmeal up so it helps the texture. The directions say to use a food processor but I think you could easily grind the oatmeal in a blender.

  1. Penless Thoughts says

    Definately copying this one!!!!

  2. These sound really good!

    I’m loving visiting your site every day. You share some really great stuff. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment so I could check out your blog! I’ll be visiting it frequently!! 🙂

  4. That’s interesting that you put the oil in and then store it. This sounds good too. My youngest loves pancakes and this might be a great way to go.

  5. These look great! I, too, make my own pancake mix (and always use King Arthur flour incidentally), so I’m definitely going to make this up. I love the way you store it, too–no getting out the cookbook!

  6. The Happy Housewife says

    Made these today, kids couldn’t taste the oatmeal at all. They were a big hit!

  7. Toni, I am so glad you liked these. Thanks for letting me know.

  8. amyswandering says

    These look delicious!

  9. Could you make these with just 5 cups of regular flour?

  10. What can I substitute for the buttermilk? I don’t typically have it on hand.
    They sound delicious and I can’t wait to make them.

    • @Kristen, This make a pretty good sub. for buttermilk. It is Milk (just under one cup)
      1 Tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and it is a good replacement.I hope you enjoy the pancakes.

  11. Yum. Made a batch of this last night as part of the pantry challenge over at Good Cheap Eats. I used old oatmeal packets of some variety that no one in the house liked and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Two things gone out of the pantry and a good supply of pancake mix on hand! I did find that this is not a very sweet pancake recipe and since I eat mine plain, I thought I would mention that for anyone else. After trying some of the first ones off the griddle, I added some more sugar and then had the brilliant idea of adding chocolate chips, which of course is delish! I have a waffle recipe that I usually just add the maple syrup to the recipe instead of sugar. I might try that next time!

  12. Oh I might have to mix this up and keep it ready. We love our oatmeal pancakes, but I would LOVE to have the mix ready and it would be easier for hubby do make one morning…or me to mix up on a weekday morning for that matter. I always keep pancakes for the weekends but maybe not any more! Thanks Lynn!
    Oh I have also used plain (unsweetened) yogurt and a little milk in place of butter milk, but most often I also do the vinegar/milk mixture.

  13. I love oatmeal pancakes. Add some cinnamon for a great alternative

  14. These were good! I actually halved the recipe, and it made 5 cups of mix. I think when I made 1 “batch” it made about 8 pancakes (don’t remember exactly). I then decided to make the rest of them and freeze… hope that works well 🙂 It is not quite as hearty/dense as what I was looking for in an oatmeal pancake, but tasty none the less. I also added in a pinch or two of Pumpkin Pie Spice to the end of the batter, which was yummy also. Thanks, Lynn!


  1. […] Last week I mentioned that I was making oatmeal pancakes that were not a favorite for my kids. Lynn gave me a recipe that tasted great. Instead of just mixing in the oats you grind them up first. You cannot taste them at all. You can find her recipe here. […]
