These look great, and I bet they're better for you than Aunt Jemima's pancake mix... ;) Eaten with streaky bacon cooked crispy and proper maple syrup, you end up in a salty-savoury-sweet heaven. Or at least I do. Perfect for Sunday brunch.


When I go to Canada in April I am coming home with a few litres of dark maple syrup. I will definitely give these a try!

Aaron - definitely, as the photo shows I'm all over the bacon, pancake and maple syrup combination. I got my first taste of it at Denny's in Florida over 20 years ago and it's stuck with me since.

Leah - definitely worth the carry. Maple syrup is getting towards prohibitively expensive over here and doubt it's as nice stuff either.


i have a cupboard full of maple syrup straight from Canada (god knows why) so these will definitely be tried out. Mmm bacon and maple syrup. Mmm.

The pancakes look great. I must have bacon with my pancakes. I'll keep this recipe in mind this weekend. Can I substitute the buttermilk with plain yoghurt? It's really difficult to find buttermilk where I live.

Joshua Armstrong

Lizzie - oh to have a cupboard full of maple syrup.

Michael - not really sure on yoghurt, it is one of about one thing in the whole world I dislike. Probably be fine, although I'd maybe water it down with milk. You can make a buttermilk substitute out of skimmed milk and lemon too, put 2 TB of lemon juice in 470ml of skimmed milk then wait a few minutes for it to thicken.


Look delicious!! love pancakes! gloria


I have a bad buttermilk pancake addiction - maybe adding the surplus oats I've got (also tried the porridge route, also found it to be utter fallacy) will make me feel like it's healthier :-)

Joshua Armstrong

Gloria - pancakes are wonderful things, I should have more in my life really

Gail - I think buttermilk pancakes are reasonably healthy anyway, I only wipe the pan with oil and as long as you don't drown in syrup. The additional oats must help though.

Brad Fallon

Looks good and healthy too because it is made of oats. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I love oatmeal and making it into a pancake is a nice idea! I sure would love to give it a try.


These look beautiful. I like the idea of oats in pancakes. Will definitely give these a try. I have been making pancakes with sour cream recently and they turn out beautifully. Useful for when you can't get buttermilk.

Michael Toa

Hi Joshua. I just want to tell you I made those pancakes this morning and they were delish! I served them with macerated strawberries and rosewater syrup.
Also thank you for the tip for the buttermilk substitute. Have a great day.

Joshua Armstrong

Glad they went well, the strawberries sound an inspired addition.


I've actually been looking for a good recipe for oatmeal pancakes for ages. The idea of letting the oats soak in the buttermilk is brilliant! I want to try this sometime soon.


great recipe! used gluten free oats ; was delicious. And I too, favour the maple syrup.

Cory Paradis

Mmm, pancakes.

But sir, I believe that you are missing out on something. 10/10 pancake batches are made better with the addition of blueberries.

Seriously, blueberry pancakes are the gods of starchy discs.
