My mother in law is an excellent cook. She gave me this recipe when I first married my husband. Therefore, I named them, “Grandma’s Oatmeal Pancakes.” These pancakes are so easy to make and there are many substitution options available. When you feel like Old Mother Hubbard and the cupboards are bare, most likely you will still have all the ingredients to make these pancakes.
Pancakes are our favorite Saturday morning family breakfast. Sundays we are busy getting ready for church and we don’t sit down as a family to eat breakfast. Then, most weekday mornings I am working for VIPKid, so my children have learned to make their own breakfast. However, on Saturdays, we eat breakfast together as a family and listen to Saturday morning children’s programming on VCY America. Grandma’s Oatmeal Pancakes with a side of bacon and a glass of orange juice is our favorite breakfast. Sometimes, if we are really hungry or we know that we will be working outside all morning, I make scrambled eggs too.
These pancakes are frugal and versatile. You can make many substitutions depending on what ingredients you have on hand. It is also a great way to use extra milk if you have a milk cow. You can read about other ways to use extra milk here.

I have a stovetop griddle that I cook the pancakes on. I have taught all my children how to make these pancakes. The pancakes are easy to mix up in my KitchenAid mixer. I pour about 1/4 -1/3 cup of batter for each pancake on a griddle on medium heat. When bubbles begin to form on the batter, I flip the pancake and cook about 1-2 minutes more.
I hope you enjoy Grandma’s Oatmeal Pancake recipe. It is so easy, you will never have to purchase boxed pancake mixes again!
