Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes

Oatmeal pancakes are a healthy way for eating pancakes, and the cinnamon adds great taste and aroma. Oatmeal is 100% natural whole grain. When using 2 pinches of cinnamon into the pancake batter, use 2 fingers to pinch the cinnamon and sprinkle into the batter; pinching ingredients will avoid using too much.

Some premade pancake mix batter says to "just add water" this is because the batter already contains eggs and milk. But if you're making your own pancake batter; use wheat flour, self-rising flour, or all-purpose flour. With the wheat flour and the all-purpose flour you would need to use 2 pinches of baking powder such as the Clabber Girl brand. Also when making your own pancake batter you will need 2 eggs and soy milk added to the mix.

Almond milk or coconut milk are healthy ways of using milk, and Land O'Lakes butter is a healthier choice for using butter in the pancakes. You can add other tasty ingredients into your oatmeal pancake batter like; sliced bananas, raisins, or shredded coconut flakes. Bananas assist with decreasing anxiety, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. And raisins are high in iron which helps people with anemia get the proper iron into their diet.

Eating oatmeal pancakes will help increase better health rather than just plain pancakes. But with oatmeal you would have to be consistent, and with the different ingredients you can add to the oatmeal pancakes, you'll want to eat them more often. Oatmeal also contain iron vitamins, the best oatmeal to use is Quaker Oats (the one minute style). And oatmeal is very high in fiber which means oats works as a colon cleanser, if eaten daily. Avoid letting a week go by without eating oats in your regular diet. Eating oatmeal pancakes can assist with decreasing the effects of:

  • Heart disease
  • Anemia
  • Diabetes Type 2
  • Constipation
  • Intestinal pain
  • Cholesterol


Benefits of Eating Coconut in Pancakes

Add coconut flakes to your oatmeal pancakes for added taste and fiber. Eating coconut can assist with better health such as: increased energy, helps with weight loss, high in fiber, helps fight cancers, cleanses the colon, and fights against viral and bacterial infections.

The best tasting syrups to use for pancakes are; Mrs. Butterworth, Log Cabin, Aunt Jamima, and other brands of Maple syrups tastes great also. Better tasting syrups are worth the price.
