Green Oat Pancakes for St. Patrick's Day

Green Oat Pancakes for St. Patrick's Day

Here is a wholesome breakfast alternative for your St. Patrick's Day celebration. They are a little less fluffy pancake and a little more hearty goodness. These are based on Taste of Home's Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes. I made them a little healthier. And green. We served with applesauce, strawberry simple syrup, powdered sugar, or maple syrup. You could also try molasses. Originally posted on my blog.

  1. Step 1

    Combine buttermilk and oats in a large bowl; let soak for 5 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Combine flours, brown sugar, wheat germ, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Whisk eggs, applesauce, and green food coloring into the oats mixture. Add more green food coloring if desired. Stir in flour mixture until batter is just moistened.
  4. Step 4

    Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  5. Step 5

    Heat a lightly oiled griddle to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour batter onto the griddle using a 1/3 cup measure. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Place pancakes on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with remaining batter.
