Just mix up the batter the night before, cover, and refrigerate overnight. This allows the batter to thicken and the oats to soften.

Then cook up some hearty, delicious oatmeal pancakes in the morning! Check out the ingredient list too – whole wheat flour, oats, honey. I would say they are pretty healthy, plus these pancakes will keep tummies full until lunch.

The pancakes do need to cook at a lower temperature and longer than the usual, but they are still pretty quick and fuss-free!

To make this TerraFit friendly, use a buttermilk substitute of milk and lemon juice (1 cup milk to 1 tablespoon lemon juice) and healthy toppings! (Limit pure maple syrup to 1 tablespoon.)

Overnight Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe

5 / 5 (1 review)
Prep Time: 15-20 | Cook Time: 5-30 min
Yield: 15-20 pancakes | Serves: 4-6


  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk


  1. Prepare the batter the night before you want to cook the pancakes.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the oatmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the honey, eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk and mix until the batter is well-combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  3. The next morning, briefly stir to combine. Heat an electric griddle or skillet over medium-low to medium heat. These pancakes need to cook for longer than traditional pancakes so they will burn if the heat is too high! If needed, spray the griddle or skillet with cooking spray.
  4. Drop 1/4 cup of batter onto the preheated griddle or skillet. Let cook for 2-3 minutes until the edges are very set and bubbles are popping on the surface. Quickly slide a flat spatula underneath and flip the pancakes making sure they are set before flipping. Cook for another minute or so until they are cooked through. Serve warm with desired pancake toppings.
