How do you make oatmeal pancakes from scratch?
- To make soft, fluffy pancakes that even your toddler can eat, reduce rolled oats flakes into flour by blending in your blender at high-speed.

- Mix both the oats flour and the beets-milk blend.
- Let the mix stand for about 5 minutes before you start cooking.
Tips for making these oatmeal pancakes with beets
- Use raw beets. Note that some beets can be bitter than others which can alter the taste in some cases.
- Use large rolled oats. I've found that small oats are rough in texture, giving you a different result than large oats.
- I've made this recipe more than ten times, and most of the time the hue of the red color varies. Sometimes it's deep red while others it's lighter.
- Use a non-stick pan to avoid having to add oil.
Are Oatmeal Pancakes Good for you?
- Oats are high in fiber and proteins, making them a better choice than white wheat flour.
- If you are not cooking with transfats (like margarine), then your oatmeal pancakes are healthy.
- In case you are using butter, make sure it's from grass-fed cows.
- Another problematic issue is sugar. Use a natural syrup or whole non-processed brown sugar. If you can afford it, coconut sugar is low in Glycemic Index.
How to store your leftover pancakes
- This pancake recipe will give you about 7 pancakes. But that will depend on what you are using to scoop the batter.
- If you have some leftovers, wrap them in a kitchen cloth, put them in a freezer bag, zip them, and keep them in your fridge.
- Eat these leftovers within 4-5 days.
- When it's time to eat these leftover pancakes, remove them from your fridge and warm them a bit in your oven heated at 50°C. Or heat them on a pan, keep an eye not to burn them.
I hope you'll love this simple oatmeal pancake recipe with beets, and more so that your kids will adore them.
