Apple Oatmeal Pancakes make a hearty breakfast and will keep you going through the morning. This recipe combines shredded apples along with oatmeal for a change to your everyday pancakes.
These pancakes are fluffy and light and are a treat for breakfast or a Sunday brunch. This recipe is a family favorite that I am sure your family will enjoy as well.
I love the combination of apple and cinnamon any time of the year. It is the perfect combination when it comes to these pancakes.
Pancakes are perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast or brunch. They take very little effort to make and they always taste so good. I not only like these pancakes for breakfast, but they are perfect for an easy dinner idea. Serve them with some bacon or pork sausage and you are set.
- Make sure to grate the apples for this recipe. This will help so that you don’t have crunchy apples in the pancakes.
- One of the best ways to grate the apples is to use a box grater. It is fast and easy to clean up when you are done grating.
- I like to use quick oats for this recipe, but if you have old fashion oats on hand that will work as well.
- The skillet or griddle should be hot before adding the pancake batter.
- Don’t worry if you don’t have a griddle to make the pancakes. An electric fry pan or a heavy skillet will do the trick.
- The batter for these pancakes is quite thick, I used a spoon to spread out the batter a bit.
- Make sure that the pancakes are bubbling and the edges are firm before you flip the pancakes.
- Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 days.
Steps for making Apple Oatmeal Pancakes
In a large bowl combine the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
In another bowl combine the eggs, milk, oil, and shredded apples.
Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix just until combined.
Heat a griddle or a skillet over medium heat. Add about 1/3 cup batter to the skillet and cook until the pancake bubbles, then flip and cook until the pancakes are golden brown.
Serve immediately with your favorite syrup.

I’m glad you made it through, I would’ve been really scared, snow storm is something new to me and can’t get used to it!
Your pancakes look light, it’s a good idea to add apples, I should try it 🙂
We had about 10 inches of snow so it triggered comfort food for me, like chili. Gary makes an oatmeal pancake like this. As a matter of fact he will be making them next week for a fund raiser.
Thanks for stopping by Carol. I will have to get Gary’s oatmeal pancake recipe from you.
Glad you made it through the snow OK! The storm just missed us. We haven’t had any yet this year and I’m kind of sad about it. But these pancakes make me happy! I love the combo of oats, cinnamon and apples – such great flavors.

Wow, 12″ is a serious storm! Glad you made it through. We have yet to get much snow this year (I think we’re around 3″ total)…and I’m actually starting to miss the white stuff. (I never thought I would say that!) I can also almost smell these apple pancakes. They’re perfect for a cold, weekend morning…and I might need to whip up a batch soon!

Glad that you made it through the snow storm!!
These pancakes look so delicious…a perfect breakfast!
looks so delicious, Dawn! I’m following a gluten free diet – so I use a lot of oats (and can use gluten free flour instead of wheat) … I look forward of trying your recipe!
Happy weekend to you,
