Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day, it doesn’t matter if it is savory or sweet breakfast is just good overall and is one of the most important meals of the day!

These moist, fluffy Strawberry Oatmeal Pancakes have fresh, juicy pieces of strawberry in every bite. Old fashioned oats, buttermilk and whole wheat flour give these pancakes a wonderful texture, while the fresh berries and a hint of cinnamon round out this delicious, warm breakfast.

These pancakes can be topped with fresh whipped cream, maple syrup or even both! To be honest, they really don’t even need any toppings. My toddler has been known to eat these plain with her hands!

If you have never used oatmeal in your pancakes before you should give it a try. The oatmeal not only makes the pancakes a little more filling, but they add a nice, nutty flavor.

With summer in full swing, how great would it be to have some pancakes ready to go on a busy morning for breakfast? I know we make a few batches just for the freezer because every little bit of freezer cooking helps!

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR?

I know that this is an ingredient that not all people keep on hand and don’t want to run out to the store to get just for one recipe.

So if you do not have it on hand and do not want to go get any you can substitute it will all-purpose flour instead.

DO I HAVE TO USE OLD FASHIONED OATS?

Yes, this is what we recommend. You will want it to sit for 20 minutes to soak up some of the liquid but the old fashioned oats is what gives these pancakes they’re texture.

We have have not tried with quick cooking oats, but they would be too small and your pancakes would be runny.

WHAT OTHER TOPPINGS CAN I USE?

Some other yummy toppings: salted butter, scoop of ice cream, chocolate syrup, melted peanut butter, caramel sauce, or vanilla sauce.

HOW TO STORE:

These can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 2 days, any longer the strawberries will start to break down.

They can also be frozen, place in a freezer bag or container and they will keep frozen for up to 3 months. 

To defrost, place in the refrigerator overnight until thawed. Reheat in a griddle or the oven, I do not recommend the microwave. 

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • This recipe can be doubled to serve more people!
  • Other fruits can be used instead of strawberries.
  • Top this with other things, see above for ideas.
  • Make sure that you are using old fashioned oats for this recipe.
  • These can be frozen, see above on how to do that.
  • The whole wheat flour can be substituted for all-purpose flour.
  • Use this as a base recipe for other pancakes. You can even leave out the strawberries for just oatmeal pancakes. Some other yummy mix-ins include: blueberries, chocolate chips, chopped pecans, butterscotch chips, or peanut butter chips.

    What a hit tonight! I did strawberries and blueberries with just one more tablespoon of sugar and minus the salt. Thanks for this most righteous recipe!

    Love this recipe!!! I had to make some changes and it worked out GREAT. I cut out the sugar because the fruit and syurp makes up for the sweetness. Used half the butter. Lastly, used a cup of almond milk with a tbsp of added apple cider vinager. WOW, so good. Freezes great. This is a keep forever recipe.
