Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes

It’s here.  Finally, Monday is here!  I can pretty much guarantee that you will never see me type those words again because on most occasions I am usually pretty sad when Monday rolls around.  But not this Monday.  This Monday I am going to see my family, puppy dogs, and some great friends, and I will be back in my hometown.  This Monday will truly be a great one.  I am in the Christmas spirit even more now than I have ever been.  In the past, Christmas was a lot about time away from school, lots of delicious food, and presents.  This year, Christmas is still a little bit about time away from the daily grind and it is definitely about food, but most importantly it is about being with the ones I love and in the place where I truly feel at home.  Sure presents are nice, but they are not what is making me happy this holiday season.  It’s the little things that matter the most this year :).

Now that I have gone and gotten all sappy on you, I am going to leave you with a quick recipe that I teased you with a little while back.  After that, I am going to check out for the majority of my holiday break (don’t worry, I have a couple of pre-written posts all ready to go for you!) so that I can truly enjoy my time at home.

Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes

Servings: 2


1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup oat flour*
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 TB baking powder
2 TB light brown sugar
1 packet Stevia
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 TB pure vanilla extract
1 flax egg (1 TB flax seed + 2-3 TB water, mixed and refrigerated for 15-30 minutes)
~1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/8 cup whole rolled oats
1/8 cup raisins

*Grind oats in food processor until they resemble the texture of flour

Optional toppings:

nut butter (I used peanut butter)
melted jelly/jam (I used blackberry jam)
maple syrup
fresh fruit


1. Mix flours, baking soda, baking powder, brown sugar, Stevia, and cinnamon in large mixing bowl.

2. Stir in vanilla, flax egg, and almond milk.

3. Add rolled oats and raisins.

4. Heat a pancake griddle over medium heat.

5. Once hot, spray the griddle with cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray).  Scoop the pancake batter 1/4 cup at a time onto the griddle.  Cook pancakes for 5-7 minutes, or until bubbles form on the top and the bottoms become golden brown.

6. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook an additional 3-5 minutes.

7. Add desired toppings.

Yes, I said the toppings were optional.  But who am I kidding?  You are definitely going to at least want to add some nut butter.  Oh, and the drippier the better.

I think I devoured these pancakes in about 5 minutes flat.  Luckily I had just enough self control to leave the other half of the batch to take to work the next day.  I’m not kidding when I say that reheated pancakes really do taste good.

I am pretty sure you are definitely going to want to make these…ASAP.

Now go have yourself a fabulous Christmas!

    I love the inclusion of buckwheat flour! Cinnamon apple buckwheat pancakes are one of my favorites - I bet these would be great topped with cooked apples! I hope you have a great holiday with your friends and family! Alex@vegginout recently posted...Running Update!My Profile

      I have never tried apples in buckwheat pancakes before, but that sounds fabulous! I guess I know what I need to make soon ;).

    I'm so excited for you to be home with your family and puppies. It must be so hard to be away from your doodles, I always love how excited my doodle gets when I come home from work, but especially after you have been gone for awhile. These pancakes also sound fantastic. Nicole @ FruitnFitness recently posted...Twas the weekend before ChristmasMy Profile

      One of the things I get MOST excited about when I go home is seeing my doodles. They are going to come stay with me in January when my parents are in Hawaii and I am SO excited!!

    These sound so good. I'm not normally a fan of raisins, but they sound perfect here. Do you use whole flax seeds to make flax eggs? I normally use flax meal and give it 5 minutes.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 23, 2013, 10:20 am
      I do not use whole flax seeds. I used milled, so you and I are thinking a like. I guess the idea of using whole seeds creeps me out a bit? Maybe I'm weird? ;)

    These seriously look AMAZING. They are absolutely going to find their way in to my post-holiday rotation (once life gets back to normal!), because they legit have me drooling at my desk!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 24, 2013, 4:52 pm
      Haha, thanks Stephanie!! That is good to hear! Let me know once you have tried them :).
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien December 23, 2013, 4:33 pm
    Drippy nut butter is the best pancake topper (dare I say frosting?) everrrr! I'll take ten of these, please!! Alexis @ Hummusapien recently posted...Double Chocolate Peppermint Cookies + R.A.W. Snacks Giveaway!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 24, 2013, 4:54 pm
      It REALLY is!! And yes, I definitely call it frosting a lot too. It sure tastes like it! :)

    Oh this would've been perfect for my brinner last night, darn! sharsti recently posted...Weekly goals with a side of sillyMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 24, 2013, 4:55 pm
      They definitely would have been. Next time you have brinner you will have to make these. Whenever I make brinner I almost always makes pancakes..it's weird. I think I eat them for "brinner" more than for breakfast ;).
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life December 23, 2013, 5:33 pm
    Buckwheat is super trendy right now, isn't it!? I have yet to try cooking with it. These pancakes like all your other ones look amazing! Have a wonderful holiday and we will see you soon! :) Ang @ Nutty for Life recently posted...Marvelous Merriment [#MIMM 19]My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 24, 2013, 4:56 pm
      It is very trendy, and I am SO glad that I jumped on the bandwagon because I am absolutely loving baking with it. You definitely need to give it a try with either some pancakes or a buckwheat bake :).
