Oatmeal Pancakes (or Waffles)

Oatmeal Pancakes (or Waffles)

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10-20 minutes
  • Yields: 2 servings (approx 10 pancakes total)


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons oil (I like coconut oil)


  1. Place all ingredients, except oil, in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Let stand a few minutes until batter thickens.
  3. If batter is too thick to pour easily, add some water.
  4. Heat oil in frying pan or skillet.
  5. Pour batter, by ¼ – ½ cup, into pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  6. For waffles: Pour into a heated waffle iron and cook for 10 minutes.


  • Try adding chopped walnuts to the pancake batter.
  • Top with simple fruit syrup made by heating apple juice to almost boiling and stirring in kudzu root to thicken.
