These are my son's favorite pancakes! Especially with fresh blueberries or mashed bananas mixed into the batter. The blueberry sauce is also very good on french toast, waffles and even ice cream!

How to Make Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Soak oats in 3/4 cup of the buttermilk 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Stir egg, butter, brown sugar, remaining 3/4 cup and the 2 Tbsp buttermilk and oat mixture into dry ingredients until just combined.
  4. Heat a griddle over medium heat until hot and lightly spray with oil. Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto griddle and cook until bubbles appear on surface and undersides are golden-brown, about 1 minute. Flip with a spatula and cook other side, about 1 minute more.
  5. Blueberry Sauce: Combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan; stir in water. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add berries. Reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until berries burst. Stir in butter until melted. Serve warm.
