Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes!

If you haven’t noticed, I love pancakes. This is especially true when there is peanut butter involved.

I love that you can make them ahead of time, freeze them and break them out when you need a pancake fix.

I love that you can make them and keep them warm in the oven or toaster oven while you prepare the rest of your breakfast (or if you have sleepy head stragglers).

And this is how to fix your pancakes Chocolate & Carrots-Style:

Assemble ingredients: Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes, Natural Creamy Peanut Butter, Natural Cane Syrup or Maple Syrup, Banana

Spread the delicious peanut butter on each pancake. (I use Skippy Natural)

Drizzle the syrup on the plate. I like the dipping process versus having it already on the pancake.

Slice a half of a banana and scatter the pieces. And finally, eat every last beautiful bite.

  1. These pancakes look delicious! I will adapt it with gluten free flours and gluten free oats. And I know my kids are going to want to add some chocolate chips on top 🙂

    Love your blog and the pix of Leland and Biscuit!

    1. Haha…my husband is the same way. His absolute favorite pancakes are chocolate chip pancakes. Mmm!

      Thank you for the sweet comments! You can tell we don’t have any children by the large quantities of dog photos that we take. Haha!

  2. Hi Caroline 🙂 MMMmmm yummy Girl!! Those look peanutlicous, hehehe 😉 I too LOVE peanut butter so much. I myself LOVE and prefer waffles! Sunday is belgium waffle day for me, LOL. I make a batch of different varieties and freeze them. I have some now that are from Lauren at Healthyfood4living, banana chocolate chip that I altered a little and added oats ground in the food processor into flour along with the ww pastry flour. I top mine with Peanut Butter & Co. dark choc pnt butter & 1/2 sliced banana. OMG so yummy!!! You know dark choc/pnt butter, nothing gets better and what a great way to start the day 🙂 I will have to try this recipe in waffle form too 🙂

    1. Oh my. Belgium waffle Sunday sounds amazing! I hope your breakfast was amazing this morning! 😀 Nothing like a dark chocolate & peanut butter start to your day. Mmmm!

  3. That’s interestingly nearly the same recipe I use, but I happen to put ground flaxseed in mine also. I also use a peanut butter topping- but I premix it- pure maple syrup, a little raw honey and a couple spoons of peanut butter (the NO hydrogenated oils kind). Mix, then pour/spread it over hot pancakes- heavenly! My husband & I have them for dinner weekly, they are very filling & like a dessert and meal in one.
