Pancakes are a great breakfast option, ain’t it? And people like my husband can have it for any meal of the day. J So, I have found out ways of making them healthier.

This is my Oats and buttermilk pancake recipe. I have replaced all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour and regular refined sugar with brown sugar. I have also added fruits like strawberry and oranges to it to add some acidity and freshness to it.

COOKING TIME: 10- 12 minutes

Oats pancakes


  1. Oats – ¾ cup
  2. Whole wheat flour – ¼ cup
  3. Buttermilk – ½ cup
  4. Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
  5. Baking soda – 0.5 teaspoon
  6. Brown sugar– 1/3 cup
  7. Cinnamon powder – 1.5 teaspoon
  8. Vegetable oil – 2 tablespoons
  9. Strawberry – 2
  10. Orange – few slices
  11. Powdered sugar – 1 tablespoon


  1. Pulse the oats into a fine powder.
  2. In a big mixing bowl, add the oats powder, whole wheat flour, cinnamon powder, sugar and buttermilk and mix well. You might need to add a bit more buttermilk. The batter should be a nice runny consistency.
  3. Keep the batter for about 15-20 minutes.
  4. After the batter has rested, add the baking soda and powder.
  5. Heat a non-stick pan and keep it on medium heat. Apply some oil on it.
  6. Add some water drops on the pan once it is hot and allow them to evaporate.
  7. Add a ladle of the batter on it and allow it to cook on one side for 2 minutes.
  8. Flip it on the other side for another 2 minutes and lower the flame to low.
  9. Once the pancake is cooked take it off the flame.
  10. Again apple some oil and sprinkle some water and allow it to evaporate and add more batter.
  11. Repeat the steps 7-10 to finish all the batter and make your pancakes.
  12. Place some cut strawberries and oranges slices on top and sprinkle some powdered sugar and serve hot.
