These oat pancakes have – weekend breakfast – written all over them. But in fact, they are dead easy and quick to make. Most definitely can be enjoyed on any day. Pancakes are made from 4 ingredients only plus the yogurt and jam to serve with. I love these easy to put together combos.
Let me tell you about the jam I used – it’s homemade, it’s delicious and you have to make it. It doesn’t take long to make and you are controlling what’s in the jam. Mainly I mean how much sugar is in the jam. Well, there is no processed sugar in this jam. Or in any other jams I make. Only delicious mixed berries – strawberries, raspberries, red berries and dried dates to boost the sweetness.
But I get it if you just came across these pancakes and can’t wait to make them. In this case, I would go with more fresh fruit instead of bought jam. More blueberries, or strawberries, or maybe some peaches. Or all of them? The more fruit the better.
If you happen to have some time for jam making, go for it. It’s well worth it. And quite handy to have a jar of something sweet and healthy in the fridge. And it doesn’t take hours. And there is no jar pasteurization involved. My jams are user-friendly. I promise.
Back to the pancakes. Oat and flaxseed flour can be easily bought right now. Making your own is so easy you might want to consider that. If you have a blender that’s all you need. It takes 10-15 seconds to blend. It’s an option even on a busy morning. See recipe notes to find out how to make your own flour.
These are perfect for an egg breakfast. Have a look at the savory version as well.

* If you just want to make enough flour for one batch of pancakes add ½ cup of oats and 2 tablespoons of flaxseed together to the blender. Blend on high speed shaking the blender every few seconds to stir the oats. Blend until you reach desired flour like consistency. This will make a bit more flour than needed to make this batter. Just add a bit more milk to the batter to compensate.
* If batter is on the thick side just add a bit of milk and stir well.
* Store any leftover pancakes in the fridge. They are delicious toasted/ microwaved next day.
