Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #61: Oat Pancakes

Time for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky where you can share your special time in the kitchen, such a great place for learning. You can also link up Kid-Friendly Recipes)

The linky is at the bottom.

Well, our recipe selections are going to be changing a bit. I have not been feeling up-to-par lately and have decided to try a wheat-free diet. I am focusing on myself, but I am trying to include the children and my husband as much as possible for now. If I see some major improvements we will hopefully all be deleting wheat from our diets. I am reading a book called Weeding out Wheat by Luke and Trisha Gilkerson and I can't wait to share my review with you. I am already becoming convicted that giving up wheat is the necessary thing to do. However, I know have to take some time to find foods and recipes that are wheat-free.

As we usually have pancakes for dinner on Thursdays with our Breakfast For Dinner I figured I would have to find something I could eat too. I found these yummy Oat Pancakes at


1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

We started out by grinding the oats down in the Magic Bullet.

Then we combined the oat flour with the salt, baking powder and cinnamon. 

The girls loved the smell.

We then beat the eggs. Then we added the milk and vanilla.

Next we stirred the liquid mixture into the flour mixture.

Then we cooked them.

As this was a new recipe, I only did a single batch. We also made some of our regular pancakes.

Here is a comparison of the two different pancakes on the griddle. The regular pancakes are on the left.

By the way, Hannah helped me make the regular pancakes and she tried valiantly to get the sausages out of the box.

Here is our complete meal. The Oat Pancakes are lighter and they don't have as fine a texture, but they tasted pretty good.

Do you have your children help you in the kitchen?  What lessons do they learn? Do you have any kid friendly recipes to share?

I'd love to see your posts, whether you have done something this week or some time in the past. Just link up below. This is a weekly linky.

  1. My boys love to cook with me! This looks yummy!

  2. We found a wheat free recipe for pancakes in the THM book and like it a lot as well! Praying you begin to feel better as you explore this option!

  3. We do gluten free and dairy free at our house due to allergies. I have a great recipe I'll try to come share!

  4. I didn't think about processing your own oat flour from quick oats! We're always looking for new pancake recipes...we'll need to add this to our list! Thanks for sharing!

  5. We enjoy pancakes and a new variation is most welcome! I didn't know you can make your own oat flour from grinding oats, so I'll have to give that a try! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
