To prepare homemade cinnamon oatmeal pancakes you will need few basic ingredients such as egg, flour and milk and of course oats and spices such as cinnamon.
If you are making pancakes for the first time, it is good to remember about using two separate bowls to mix wet ingredients and dry ingredients. Moreover, I always use only fresh ingredients. It is very important if you want to prepare tasty pancakes every time. Another thing to bear in mind is not to over mix the batter. So do not use an electric mixer. It is good to whisk batter with a fork or with a spoon. Cooking pancakes is rather easy, but when doing this, it is also good to know about one simple rule: do not flip pancakes more than once, if you do not want them to become rubbery. Well, I guess that is all. Here is the recipe for the homemade cinnamon oatmeal pancakes:

Pancakes made from scratch are better in taste and they can be more nutritious than those made from a mix (one cool from scratch recipe is here). You may think more delicious… ok! But why also healthier? The answer is simple. When you are making pancakes from scratch, you can always control which ingredients you add to them. And instead of sugar you can put some sweetener to make them lower in calories and you can always substitute whole wheat flour with some oats and coconut flour.

Recently I came up with brilliant idea, I was thinking about Nutella filled crepes, which sound so tempting, and then I thought: why don’t I make some American- style pancakes with Nutella. And it was a good decision. Pancake batter is very adaptable and just about any ingredient can be worked into it, and I simply added chocolate- hazelnut spread ingredient to my pancakes.
To top the pancakes, I usually use maple syrup but you can as well top them with chocolate syrup, which is also very delicious. If you want to make pancakes more nutritious, you can serve them with fruits such as banana, strawberries, blueberries or cherries (learn more about the health benefits of fruits on juicebenefits.net).
And if you have a picky eater at home, I am almost sure, your kid will enjoy these pancakes with chocolate chips which you can add to the batter. For Nutella Pancakes I use buttermilk instead of milk as I consider buttermilk pancakes to be more airy and lighter. Remember that it is good to set the batter aside for few minutes before cooking so that baking soda and baking powder will perform their magic and make the pancakes airier.
Here is the recipe for delicious homemade Nutella Pancakes:
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoon Nutella
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
How to make Nutella Pancakes:
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, sugar and salt.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together Nutella and egg. When combined, beat in buttermilk.
- Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
- Set the batter aside for 5 minutes before cooking.
- Heat a frying pan or a griddle over medium-high heat and brush it with few drops of oil.
- Pour about ¼ cup of batter into the frying pan.
- Cook the pancake on one side for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
- Flip the pancake and again cook for about 2 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve warm and with desired syrup.

Pancakes are a great breakfast idea- loved by kids and grown ups alike, homemade pancakes are very easy to make. A Pancake is a thin flat cake made by pouring batter onto a hot greased flat pan, and cooking it on both sides. The best thing about pancakes is that they can be made very easily in a short frame of time.
With a little care and practice, you can even match the quality of some world famous pancakes such as pancake house. Not just breakfast but even at other times of the day pancakes can be had and since they’re usually combined with honey or maple syrup, they give you an instant burst of energy to get going.
The batter from which pancakes are made generally contains eggs and milk, but for the vegans, like every other dish, vegan pancakes are available too. Homemade pancakes are tasty, sumptuous, healthy and convenient to make- all the makings of a great breakfast idea.
Pancakes are mostly made by chemical leavening, while sometimes they are made from batter that is fermented. A quick bread formula, which is the simplest to follow at home is as follows:
Mix together 1 and a half cups of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder, 2 tablespoons sugar(elective) and half/one tablespoon salt. To this mixture, add an egg and one and a half cup milk. Mix well and remove large lumps if any. Now set your skillet or griddle to an optimum heating temperature. Take sizeable portions of the batter to place on the skillet- each portion should make a single pancake. Wait until bubbles start to appear on the top and then turn over and fry the other side of the pancake. When you’re done, use your creativity to decorate the surface with blueberries, raspberries or chips of banana.

In the past, I used to make my pancakes from mix, but my family didn’t enjoy eating them. I decided to make pancakes from scratch when my first baby was 6 years old. I realized that I can make better pancakes and that I can control which ingredients I use. I always try to make my homemade pancakes more nutritious. Sometimes I don’t add sugar to them, the other time I add some raspberries or blueberries to the batter. I love adding flavor to my pancakes, specially with Cinnamon or Vanilla extract. A little sugar free syrup and a medley of fruit make pancake healthy and tasty meal for anyone who doesn’t want to much of sugary things.

Savory pancakes are excellent when you want something different.
