Simple and easy oat based pancake mix. Perfect for prepping ahead and bringing out to camp - no fresh milk is required to cook these bad boys! Only eggs and some oil is needed. Enjoy them topped with fruit, jam, nut butter - or maple syrup of course!
Course Breakfast
Servings 10 pancakes (3"-4")
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes


  • 1 Blender or food processor optional


  • 1 cup rolled oats, or 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 5 tbsp milk powder, whole milk recommended
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, optional

To cook pancakes (not needed for recipe mix)

  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, plus more to grease pan


  • 1. Blend oats in a blender until a flour-like consistency forms. Leaving some larger oat flakes is okay (omit if using store bought oat flour)
  • 2. Combine remaining ingredients with oats in a resealable container.

To cook pancakes:

  • 1. In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs until yolk is well broken. Add oil and mix well.
  • 2. Pour in pancake mix and stir to combine. Leave mixture slightly lumpy.
  • 3. Put skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Pour some vegetable oil in the pan to evenly coat.
  • 4. Once oil is heated, scoop pancake batter onto pan (recipe calls for 3"-4" sized pancakes, but you can make whatever size you like). Allow to cook for about 4 minutes per side - before flipping, bottoms should be golden brown and a couple of bubbles should be popping through the top of the batter.


  • Using quick oats is fine as well 
  • Switch things up and try adding in some mix-ins (such as dried bananas, shredded coconut) I recommend adding 1/4 - 1/3 cup total mix-ins per batch. 
  • I prefer to heat the skillet once the batter is made. This allows some time for the batter to coagulate and the baking powder to activate (resulting in fluffier pancakes)
