Steel Cut Oats Pancakes

While I have been compensated for this Steel Cut Oats Pancake Recipe by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and Quaker. All opinions are mine alone, #MyOatsCreation .

Pancakes anyone?
These deliciously looking pancakes are made with  Steel Cut Oats . They make for great breakfast but I really don't mind eating them for dinner either. 

When Quaker asked me to develop  a recipe using steel cut outs I wanted to make something that everyone would want to eat.   I mean who doesn't like pancakes, right? It's a perfect marriage:  hearty  oats and fluffy  pancakes. I love oats, and I always find a way to incorporate them into everything I make. From sweets to savory dishes. I like the hearty flavor and texture they add to the dishes.
So I decided to make pancakes with oats. Preparing steel cut oats itself can be time consuming but using a quick pre-soaking method makes it a breeze to prepare breakfast pancakes in the morning.

When developing this recipe I  used ingredients  you probably already have on hand and if  you don't you can also pick them on your next shopping trip, they are  readily available at Target .
The Quaker Steel Cut Oats can be found at the Hot Cereal isle at the store.


I wanted to make sure that cooked steel cut oats pancakes were fluffy and light.   To get the job done I employed egg whites, lemon juice and baking soda.  I used some honey to sweeten the batter and added cinnamon and vanilla for more flavor. I also added  whole milk, non-fat yogurt and freshly grated ginger.  Once all combined you'll have a really nice batter to work with.
Remember to save some pre-soaked oats in the fridge so you can enjoy them later or make another batch of pancakes next morning. 
I also love munching on them during the day, simply stir in  some cinnamon and honey. A perfect afternoon snack.

Let's make hearty and delicious Steel Cut Oats Pancakes!

Presoaking Oats Overnight

Bring 4 cups water to boil, add salt and  Quaker Steel Cut Oats. Cook for 1 minutes. Be sure to watch the pot, it will get little foamy on the top.
Remove from the stove. Cover with the lid and leave it be for 8 hours or so. Now you have the oats you can work with and make the pancakes.

Make Pancake Batter

Stir flour, cinnamon and baking soda, set aside.
Whisk together milk, yogurt, egg yolks, honey, ginger, coconut oil, vanilla extract.
Beat egg whites in a clean bowl with a pinch of salt. Beat until stiff peaks are formed, don't overbeat.
Whisk together milk, yogurt, egg yolks, vanilla extract, honey, coconut oil, lemon juice. ginger. Stir in cooked steel cut oats.
Into the wet ingredient fold in the flour mixture then add about 1/3 of meringue, fold in  and gradually add remaining meringue.
Preheat the skillet or griddle, add some coconut oil.
I used 1/3 cup measure to make the pancakes, drop the batter onto the preheated skilled. Cook about 2-3 minutes, on medium high, until golden brown on the bottom. Flip and cook additional 1-2 minutes.
Serve. Enjoy plain or serve with your favorite toppings.

I really enjoy these pancakes plain but you can also dress them a little with your favorite toppings.
