I was looking for “overnight oatmeal pancakes” and found this. I have made the the overnight version many times without any problems. Apparently this is the updated version of it. I like the original better. The only downside to the original is that you have to plan ahead.Made this, found it kinda crunchy, didn’t need to add the reserved oats, needed to add the extra buttermilk. I’ll probably make again but will play around with the recipe.
Carol! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. Even though this wasn’t your favorite I’m glad you still find it delicious enough to adapt to your own tastes and kitchen.
What is the final texture of these supposed to be like? The batter smelled amazing but they came out kinda like oatmeal patties. I cooked the for a really long time but the inside was mooshy like oatmeal.
Hi, Miranda — The pancakes should be cooked and not mooshy. My only thought is maybe lower the temp on your burner, and cook them a little longer.
These were even better than I expected. Sounds of “mmmmmmmm” accompanied each bite. Definitely have some fresh berries with these pancakes to add some acidity. Utterly delicious and quite filling.
If I were to use quick oats instead, would the amount change? I have a big bag of quick oats that I’d like to use up before buying any more. It sounds delicious!
Quick oats will also work. I’d use the same amount–the pancakes won’t have the exact same texture, but they should still be delicious! If the batter thickens while it sits, just add a little milk or buttermilk to thin it to the desired consistency.
Made this yesterday. I cooked them in the waffle maker. They were delicious. I froze the leftovers. Five minutes in the toaster this morning and they were almost as good. I’m making a big batch today just for the freezer.
Can some kind of non-cow based milk be substituted for buttermilk?
Hi, Karen! We didn’t test it that way, but you could you could try it with an alternative dairy. If you use an alternative dairy, you need to add acid as well to create the rise or lift in the pancake. Add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice when you add the non-dairy milk. It might be enough to get the lift, but not so much that your pancakes taste like lemon. If you try it, please let us know how it turns out.
Thanks I will let you know if I do!
