I’ve never met a pancake that I didn’t like.

Correction. I’ve never met a fluffy buttermilk pancake that I didn’t like. I have, however, met several flimsy-dense-flavorless-whole-wheat pancakes in my life. And they’re quite a disappointment to say the least.

Healthy whole wheat pancakes are difficult to master because pancakes are meant to be light, soft, and fluffy. All things that whole wheat flour isn’t. However, finding the right balance of ingredients to make your pancakes whole-grain AND fluffy isn’t impossible. It just took me a few (um, several) tries.

 

Let’s just say I spent my entire Sunday morning pancake-ing and currently have a freezer full of whole wheat pancakes. Who wants to come over for breakfast? Pancakes are the only thing on the menu.

Anyway. This is a recipe you’re going to want to hold onto. It joins my basic vanilla cupcake, basic chocolate chip cookie, and homemade cinnamon rolls in my “go-to” recipe archive. These whole wheat pancakes are an easy starting point to let your mind go wild. Plain whole wheat pancakes topped with sliced almonds. Or whole wheat chocolate chip pancakes:

The chocolate chip version of this recipe is our favorite. (duh) Though I can never say no to a classic, maple-syrup drenched plain ole whole wheat pancake.

Making these pancakes is actually really simple. There’s no crazy ingredients you’ve never heard of. Nothing requiring you to spend $15 on a crazy sugar substitute you can’t pronounce. Just plain everyday ingredients like whole wheat flour, egg, quick oats, milk, and yogurt. The pancake batter is flavored with cinnamon and vanilla extract and is very lightly sweetened with brown sugar. Only 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar for the entire recipe. Not too shabby, right?

Don’t leave out the brown sugar; your pancakes will not be good.

Let’s just discuss how thick these guys are. You have the baking powder to thank. Not too much baking powder so that your pancakes taste like chemicals, but just enough to give them a little lift. Ok, a lot of lift. And I’m lovin’ it!

The addition of quick oats adds fiber to your pancakes, as well as gives them a hearty, satisfying texture. The oats bulk up the batter without adding any unnecessary sugar or fat. You know when you mix oats with water/milk, they bulk right up? The same goes with this pancake batter. I always add a touch of oats to my batters. Oh and don’t worry, these pancakes won’t taste oat-y.

Greek yogurt adds a slight protein punch to the batter. It also keeps things on the lower fat side. I love using Greek yogurt in my healthier recipes; it’s like a softness inducing miracle ingredient. Yogurt also brings so much moisture to the resulting pancake. Dry, tough pancakes have no place in my kitchen.

I’d rather eat broccoli for breakfast than a dry-tasting pancake.

How to make healthy whole wheat pancakes

I really need a pancake griddle. Also, do you like my shoes?

While these whole wheat oatmeal pancakes aren’t nearly as fluffy as my favorite buttermilk pancakes (you’ll find that recipe in my cookbook), they’re still incredibly soft. Just as pancakes should be. Tall stacks of soft, syrup-drenched pancakes. Heaven. 

Two very important notes: make sure your griddle is HOT before adding the pancake batter. Also, spray your pan or griddle between each pancake or batch of pancakes. Ok, let’s recap.

These whole wheat oatmeal pancakes are:

  • Soft
  • Thick
  • Healthy
  • Whole-grain
  • Moist
  • Really, really good

These whole wheat pancakes are not:

  • Made with weird ingredients
  • Boring
  • Flavorless
  • Diet-busting
  • Dry as cardboard
  • Hard as bricks

Just making sure we’re clear here.

Healthy Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Made with Greek yogurt, oats, whole wheat flour, and not much else. Recipe may be doubled for a large family.

Yield: 7-8 pancakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (123g) whole wheat flour (or white whole-wheat)
  • 1/2 cup (40g) quick oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg (or 2 egg whites)
  • 1 cup (240ml) milk*
  • 2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar (or light brown)
  • 1/4 cup (63g) Greek yogurt*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup add-ins like chocolate chips or fruit, optional

Directions:

Toss the flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Set aside. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the egg and milk together. Whisk in the brown sugar and yogurt until no lumps remain. Whisk in the vanilla until combined.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in. Stir gently until just combined. Do not overmix the batter or your pancakes will be tough and very dense. Add any mix-ins you prefer, but again - do not overmix the batter.

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Coat generously with cooking spray, oil, or butter.  Once hot, drop about 1/4 cup of batter on the griddle. Cook until the edges look dry and bubbles begin to form on the center or sides, about 1 minute. Flip and cook on the other side until cooked through, about 2 more minutes. Coat griddle/skillet again with nonstick spray for each pancake or batch of pancakes.

Keep pancakes warm in a preheated 200F degree oven until all pancakes are cooked. Serve immediately. Pancakes taste best right after they are made. Pancakes freeze well, up to 2 months.

*Recipe tested with both skim and vanilla almond milks. Soy milk, 1%, 2%, buttermilk, or rice milk are OK.

*Recipe tested with plain 0% Greek yogurt. Regular yogurt, any milk fat and your choice of flavor, is OK.

    They look great (and thank you for not making pumpkin pancakes – as much as I love those, a great, timeless, seasonless recipe is really awesome!) and I know how hard whole wheat flour is in anything you want to rise and stay light. When I made 100% whole wheat dinner rolls, let’s just say that I had more than a few rolls. Like you’re only serving pancakes for breakfast, I’m only serving dinner rolls for dinner :)

    And I need a pancake griddle too. Or just better flipping skills. It’s always a hope-and-a-prayer when I flip those babies over…wondering if I will mutilate. Lol

I’m more of a waffle person than pancakes, because pancakes usually seem so textureless and floppy, but these look so hearty and wonderful! I love oats in anything, and whole-wheat flour is actually so great, regardless of its healthful properties! :) Thanks for all your experimentation for us!

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on November 6th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

      Quick oats are more powdery so they are absorbed more into the pancake batter compared to whole, thick oats. If you don’t mind larger oats in your pancakes, definitely use the old-fashioned rolled oats. You can, however, pulse regular old-fashioned rolled oats in a food processor or blender about 5 times to get quick oats.

I tried to follow the recipe exactly, but I had to use Ultragrain flour because that’s all I had other than whole wheat pastry flour.

    I also made your chocolate chip cookies. My husband said they’re the best he’s ever had!

      And adding banana to these pancakes is a great idea. I’ll try that! Thanks Kim.

    Sally I just made these for breakfast & they are FABULOUS!!!! I couldn’t believe that these are healthy and almost fat free because they certainly don’t taste like it. They turned out true to your description…moist, fluffy & most importantly, deeeelish! I’m currently on Weight Watchers so these are right up my alley. They are only 3 points if the yield is 8, but I got 9 pancakes which makes them worth only 2 points each…which means I could eat more:)))) I froze the rest for instant breakfast gratification. Thanks for the great recipe.

    I totally love your rainbow running shoes!! I actually saw them in Road Runner Sport’s a few weeks ago when I went to buy some new ones. I was with my mom and pointed them out saying, “Sally has those!” And of course, she already knew which Sally I was referring to. (The famous one with the recipes in Women’s World Magazine!) She’d love your pancakes for dinner too — she’s the one who taught my brother and me about breakfast for dinner!

    I halved the recipe and made these this morning for my 17-month-old daughter. I added half a banana as my fruit, and they were seriously delicious! I made three big pancakes from the halved recipe and my daughter ate an entire pancake herself, plus a few bites of mine, and this is AFTER she’d eaten two peaches and some applesauce! These were so fluffy and good, and not in a “for a healthy pancake” way, but in a just generally “good” way! Thanks for the great recipe!

    These were the best pancakes I have ever had in my life, and I’ve made a lot of pancakes! Because I am hopelessly addicted to peanut butter, I mixed equal parts applesauce and peanut butter in a small mug, plopped it in a ziplock baggie, snipped off a corner and then piped delicious swirls onto the pancakes right after they hit the griddle. AWESOME! Thank you so much for this amazingly healthy recipe!

      Hi Nicole. Bananas or applesauce would be ok if it is completely necessary to omit the sugar, but I’m not sure how the pancakes will taste (let alone their texture). I attempted these without the brown sugar and I had to throw them out. Maybe 1 mashed banana? Again, I’m not confident that the pancakes will be good. Is there a sugar free pancake recipe online you can find?

      Hi Emily! Using coconut oil to coat the pan is perfectly fine. Make sure to coat between each pancake (if only making 1 at a time). The pan must always be oiled.

    Stumbled across your cinnamon rolls–BEST ever! Make them twice a month when wife needs sugar and a hug. I was looking for a whole wheat pancake recipe, and when I saw these and the connection to you, HAD to try them as well. Once again, best EVER whole wheat recipe. These are the lightest, best textured whole grain pancake I have ever eaten, and I make pancakes a lot. I have some whole wheat pastry flour and bread flour that is ground locally. I used the pastry version, as I had no all purpose whole wheat on hand. I make all our own bread, bagels, English muffins and desserts from scratch, and experiment a great deal, but I think your OCD style of baking condenses weeks and years of experiments into a day or two. Thank you for being “that” baker! Have you done sourdough yet? Going to check your blog now!

      Using the rolled oats should be fine, but they won’t soak up as much moisture as quick oats because they are not as finely ground. You may make your own quick oats by pulsing the whole oats in a food processor for about 3 seconds/3 pulses.

    What do you do to make sure the oats aren’t tough? I made these and the flavor was great (although I undermixed for fear of them turning out tough and ended up with some unmixed flour). I’ve soaked oats in the past to soften them, but they were a little chewy here. Advice? Great flavor again, I love yogurt in pancakes and waffles.

    • Sallyreplied on March 1st, 2014 at 9:19 am

      Hi Jose, what kind of oats are you using? Usually they cook right inside the batter and I can hardly notice they are there.

      Reply

      • Josereplied on March 1st, 2014 at 9:32 am

        Regular rolled oats. I also doubled the recipe.

        I think that by doubling it I probably needed to work a little harder to combine the dry and wet ingredients. I could’ve probably just let the batter set a little while too. Another thought is that I use a cast iron skillet and the higher heat might end up in a shorter cooking time.

        It’s a great recipe though, we doubled it to freeze some for our 2-year old who is a big pancake fan. :-)

      I’m so glad you and your husband love them Ashlie! You are very welcome for the recipe. There are two ways I reheat my pancakes. Either (1) Heat oven (or microwave oven) to 350 degrees. Bake pancakes for 10-12 minutes on a lined baking sheet. (2) Microwave for 1.5-2 minutes until heated through.

    How many pancakes does this yield if I use 1/4 cup of batter per pancake? I set this up in a calorie counter as yielding 4 servings, and it turns out to be 219 calories per pancake! A regular pancake with regular pancake mix is under 100 calories. Please tell me this makes more than 4 pancakes, because there’s nothing healthy about a 200 calorie pancake.

        I guess we’ll see when I try them tomorrow morning. Another commenter said she has to double or triple the recipe to feed 6 people. I looked at similar recipes for whole wheat oatmeal pancakes and most said it yielded 4 servings at 200-350 calories each. I know that calorie count isn’t always indicative of how healthy a food is (whole grain products tend to have more calories, for instance), but if I eat 2 pancakes for 400 calories plus my sugar free syrup – that’s quite a lot of calories for just breakfas, especially when I only have 1500 calories per day to work with.

        I’m sure they’re delicious, but they may be a special occasion breakfast only around my house.

    wow! fantastic! I’m a pancake snob and love making pancakes from scratch for my family – found your site and this recipe through a Google search, amazing pancakes…two comments: it definitely is better to make a smaller pancake w this recipe – the bigger ones were little more challenging to manage and flip. I used almond milk, and added blueberries to the batter – delicious! I also added one item: about a tablespoon of lemon juice as I mixed the dry and wet ingredients together – that makes fluffy light pancakes even fluffier! This is my new favorite recipe…thanks for sharing!

    These are the first healthy pancakes I ever tried to make and they came out sooo well! :) I made them on Monday for the first time and I’ve been having them for breakfast since then. I’m obsessed – I don’t think I’ll ever want to eat anything else for breakfast. I love experimenting with them and changing up the extras. For example, today I added sliced almonds and cocoa powder. These pancakes are also the first breakfast dish that actually fills me up and doesn’t leave me hungry after two hours.

    WOW…I was drawn to this recipe first by the gorgeous pictures, and then I read everyone’s comments and HAD to try them (I’ve never seen so many positive comments on a recipe before!) This is by far the BEST pancake recipe (healthy or not) I’ve ever made . I was forced to use spelt flour and honey instead of WW and sugar, since I was too eager to make these rather than go to the store first. But they were fantastic, and the recipe was much larger than I thought (made 15 pancakes!!). I can’t imagine them tasting any better, but will try the brown sugar and WW flour next time anyway! Can’t wait to try some more of your recipes!

    Thanks for the recipe, and most of all for trying so many versions! I made the pancakes this morning with blueberries (I always have them in the freezer). Really tasty, and after making only two at a time (so I could experiment with cooking times and see how the batter does as it sits). I found a couple of things that make them more consistent from batch to batch. 1) Let the batter sit for 5 minutes after you mix it, the oats will really soften and the baking powder gets a chance to work (you can also heat the milk until it’s very slightly warm to the touch, that helps too). 2) They can stay a little gummy in the center if they’re not cooked through. I found spreading the 1/4 cup of batter a little with my fingers or a spatula to make a slightly thinner pancake helps to make sure they’re cooked and they still puff nicely. 3) When in doubt, keep cooking them as long as they’re not too brown. 4) Use a rack on the baking sheet if you’re putting these in the oven so the bottom. doesn’t get too wet.

    I didn’t have enough of my regular Bob’s Red Mill pancake mix to make for brunch so I started searching around for a whole wheat recipe. I ran across this one with oatmeal, double bonus! I only had old fashioned rolled oats on hand but after scrolling through the comments, I saw that I could give them a few pulses in the food processor and use them instead of quick oats. I made a quadruple batch since we invited the neighbors next door over for brunch. I was taking a bit of a risk trying a new recipe on guests! This recipe did not disappoint however, it was amazing! The kids and adults gobbled down pancakes like there was no tomorrow. With butter, pure maple syrup and these pancakes you can’t go wrong! I actually had a few leftover so I threw them in the freezer for later.

    Sally! We first met over this recipe about a month ago- I absolutely love it! I’ve been making these every weekend since! Question: how do you think I could incorporate pumpkin here? Could I replace the yogurt or just try adding it to the whole original recipe? Fall’s a-comin!

      Hey Caroline! I hope to develop a yummy healthy pumpkin pancake in the fall. Until then, you may be able to throw some in here to replace some yogurt. But I really don’t know without testing it.

    These pancakes taste wonderful! I have to admit, I was quite sceptic at the beginning mainly because my batter was quite liquid but they turbed out fluffy and delicious! And you can really tell that the recipe isn’t just one of these simple with few ingredients ones… so, thanks a lot!

    Hi, I made these pancakes first time in my life and your recipe is so amazing, my 15 month old son just loved it. I was born in India and never heard of pancakes until I left the country in 2004. Always loved them but tried today for the first time. You have got a big fan of yours on the list sally. Thank you.

    These are absolutely amazing! I love pancakes but quit eating them for a while because of how unhealthy they can be. I am so happy I discovered your recipe though! My husband and 19 month old son loved them as well! Thank you for such a great recipe!

    These were great! I followed them to the letter and they turned out awesome. I made them for my boyfriend using blueberries and bananas and he freaked out. One question though, how do you freeze and unfreeze them for later?

      I simply let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight and warm them up in the microwave.

    I find these oats pancakes tastier and surely healthier than those without the oats.
    thanks for this recipe.

    I was very hesitant to try these, as I’ve tried whole wheat pancake recipes in the past that haven’t turned out too great. However, these are quite good and fluffy! The only substitute I made was to add an additional teaspoon of cinnamon and I used Quaker old fashioned oats rather than the quick cooking kind. They turned out great! Even my four year old, a very picky eater, loved them. One quick question: can I use fresh fruit in the batter? I see most people use frozen. I like using bananas and blueberries in my pancakes. Thanks for the great recipe!

      fresh fruit would be just fine. Happy you enjoy them!

    Tried a different, popular Pinterest whole wheat pancake recipe before and, due to the cardboardy texture and taste, I thought it had completely turned me off from making anymore future whole wheat pancakes, but SO glad I tried your recipe! The brown sugar and vanilla extract are SO important here and these pancakes in general totally satisfy that pancake craving, minus the guilt, all while giving you fiber & protein! Permanent go-to pancake recipe.

    Possibly the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten! so light and fluffy and so filling. I drizzled mine with a berry and greek yogurt puree but they have enough sweetness and flavour to eat by themselves. Sooooo yummy!

    I’ve been searching for a healthy, filling pancake recipe for my fussy toddler who will only eat pancakes for breakfast and oh.my.god. These are AMAZING!!! I greased the pan with coconut oil and added blueberries and served with warm maple syrup. Mmmm.
    I also need griddle. I usually have two frying pans going and it’s annoying. Lol
    Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

    These pancakes are just as advertised. Thick and fluffy and very tasty! I followed the recipe to a t and was able to make 11 pancakes made with a 1/4 c. batter. The kids and I loved them. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

    Made these this morning for my dad and boyfriend. They raved and raved about them! – best ever, no really, BEST ever, so much flavor, etc. which I was surprised about because I thought they were good but a little lacking in … richness? Flavor? Maybe because they are so healthy (: Additions/modifications: I used 1.5 c frozen blueberries (yes, a lot) that had been sitting out for 30 min to thaw a bit. Also used regular yogurt instead of Greek and let the batter sit for 5 min once mixed so the oats could soak up some water and the baking powder could start working.
    Will make again since the boys loved them so much! Next time putting choco chips in!

    You were wondering what others like as pancake topping? On buckwheat or “whole-grain” ones, I Looooove unsweetened APPLESAUCE! Also never knew just WRITING it could make me drool. Whaddya know.

    Made these delicious, scrumptious pancakes for my parents and boyfriend this past weekend, Sally. And they received rave reviews! I did grind the oats in a food processor before adding them to the mix to make them more of an oat flour. thank you for the recipe!

    Sally, tried these today morning. They turned out abso-freakin’-lely delish! Neither my 5 year old, nor fussy husband could find anything to complain about. What I loved most is that your claim that these don’t taste like cardboard was 100% correct. They absolutely didn’t…. Tasted so much better than some of the skinny/healthy versions found in the refrigerated section of a grocery store. For a clean eater such as myself, who detests processed food, these were godsend!

    Made these this morning. I always crave pancakes when the weather is cold, windy, rainy, and/or blizzardy like it is today. they were great! I also made some of the no bake peanut butter trail mix bars and am waiting for them to set. can’t wait to try them! I love spending all day baking when the weather is horrible and it’s too icky to go outside!
