Oat Bran Pancakes


Pancakes are good any time of day (in my opinion) and tonight I had them for dinner. I was hoping to make Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes but realized I’m completely out of rolled oats. Instead I used oat bran which gave the pancakes a slightly grainier texture than usual.


  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 c. oat bran
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. canola oil
  • 2 eggs


  1. Beat milks and eggs in a large bowl using a wire whisk. Add dry ingredients and oil and mix until incorporated. Batter will be pretty thick.
  2. Melt a spoonful of vegetable oil in a preheated skillet or pancake griddle; pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls for each pancake.  Grill until browned on one side and bubbling. Flip and grill until the other side is browned.  Serve with butter and syrup.

For a ‘healthier’ version of Buttermilk Pancakes, this recipe is right on target. Aside from the slightly grainy texture, picky eaters probably wouldn’t be able to identify an oat bran flavor. I could eat these for dinner every night!
