How to Make Oat Milk Pancakes

To make fluffy oat milk pancakes, just add everything to a large mixing bowl, dry ingredients and wet ingredients. Then whisk the pancake batter together until a smooth batter forms. Stop mixing once everything is incorporated. You don’t want to over-mix the pancakes. This can lead to tough rubbery pancakes.

Once you have your pancake batter, add the batter to a hot non-stick pan over medium heat. Cook each side until golden brown.

This oat milk pancake recipe is an easy recipe you can make for a weekday breakfast or a Saturday morning.

Oat Milk Pancake Ingredients

These fluffy oat milk pancakes are made with fairly simple ingredients that you should be able to find at any grocery store.

  • All Purpose Flour: To keep these pancakes light and fluffy make sure to use all purpose flour. Whole wheat flour would be too heavy for these pancakes. If you really want to add it, you can swap out a quarter or half of the flour for whole wheat.
  • Sugar: This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of sugar to add a little sweetness to the pancake. If you want to do less you can do 1 tbsp or just skip it completely.
  • Baking Powder and Soda: This is what makes these fluffy pancakes. The baking powder puffs up the pancake batter. Without this, they will be very flat and hard.
  • Oat Milk: You can use any type of oat milk you have. You can substitute regular milk, soy milk, or almond milk if you need to.
  • Butter: Melt the butter before adding it to the mix. If you don’t want to use butter you can swap it for coconut oil or vegetable oil.
  • Eggs: Use 2 large eggs in this recipe. You can also swap it out for a flax egg if you prefer.
  • Vanilla Extract: This isn’t necessary but it adds a great flavor to the pancakes!

Other ingredients that would be good in these pancakes are chocolate chips, blueberries, or a dash of cinnamon. I love these plain and just adding different toppings, but feel free to add whatever mix-ins to make them perfect for you.

What are the best toppings for oat milk pancakes?

My favorite toppings are jam and maple syrup. I love using a thicker jam that has some berries or cherries still in it. Another great option is chopped nuts like walnuts or pecans with maple syrup. You could also spread some peanut butter over your pancakes.

A simple topping that is also delicious is some butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar.

How to store leftover pancakes

This recipe makes about 16-24 pancakes, depending on how large you make them. If you have leftovers, you can store them in the freezer. Place them in an airtight container or freezer bag. Layer parchment paper between them so they don't stick to each other. You can reheat them in the microwave to make the perfect weekday breakfast!

If you know you are going to have them in the next couple of days you can just store them in an airtight container in the fridge.

Can these be made into vegan pancakes?

Yes! These are already dairy-free pancakes thanks to the oat milk. To make them fully vegan, use coconut oil or vegan butter instead of the butter. Also, use flax eggs or an egg replacer instead of real eggs.

What to Serve with Oat Milk Pancakes

These pancakes are perfect with a side of fresh fruit or fresh berries. I love making a fruit salad with strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and bananas. If you are cooking for a larger group, you can make something savory like a veggie quiche or an egg bake. that way you can have that baking in the oven while you are cooking the pancakes.

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Whisk together until just combined. Try not to over-mix, this will help give you those light and fluffy pancakes.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Using a ladle, 1/4 cup measuring cup, or a large cookie scoop, scoop out the batter and place it on the griddle.
  3. Cook until the pancake starts to brown and then flip to cook the other side, about 1-2 minutes on each side. Continue until all of the batter is used up. (The longer the pan is heating the quicker the pancakes will cook, towards the end you might need to turn it down to medium-low heat so they don't burn.)
  4. Serve with your choice of toppings. I love these pancakes with a little jam and maple syrup.


If you don't have a nonstick pan, use a cooking spray or melted butter before cooking the pancakes to make sure they don't stick.
