These oat pancakes are a favorite at our house.

With just three ingredients, they are so quick and easy that whipping them up for a quick weekend breakfast is a no-brainer! The oats provide heart-healthy fiber that fills you up more than the average flapjack.

We’ve provided the nutritional info for each serving, but note that it does not include the butter for frying or any toppings you like to add. These are honestly so delicious plain that you may not need any toppings, but of course go ahead and top with whatever makes you happy! Just calculate the nutritional info if you are conscious about carbs or other nutritional aspects.


Suggested Toppings

The traditional topping for pancakes is of course, syrup – maple being one of the top options. But for a healthier, lower-carbohydrate breakfast, consider some other options like:

  • Toasted coconut flakes
  • Toasted nuts
  • Toasted seeds
  • Coconut yogurt or your favorite low-carb yogurt
  • Fresh fruit or berries
  • Rice malt syrup or other low-carb syrup
  • Nut butter (almond, cashew or peanut)
  • Chia pudding
  • Cacao nibs
  • A spoon or two of apple sauce.

Oat Pancake Ingredients:


  • 1 cup rolled oats
