A few weeks ago on a getaway to the mountains, I meticulously planned out all of our breakfasts and dinners. Of course, our gorgeous rental (App A-Frame) tucked in the snowy woods (see below for more details…the hosts are fabulous) called for a morning of hot, creamy oatmeal. We are back home now and that bag of oatmeal has been screaming at me. So, I decided to try my hand at making Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes. However, I did not want this recipe to be typical. Basically, I created pancakes, or maybe I should even call them patties, out of the rich oatmeal. For this recipe, I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic, Extra Thick, Rolled Oats and Homestyle Pancake Mix.

One thing I love most about these pancakes was the texture. Also, they are super hearty. In my opinion, a pat of butter, a simple sprinkle of light brown sugar and cinnamon, finished with a warmed, organic maple syrup from Runamok Maple was pure perfection.

You will need to refrigerate the oatmeal once it’s cooked. This will thicken the oatmeal and make it much easier to form into pancakes. Also, keep in mind that in order for the pancakes to stay together while you are cooking, try not to touch them until they are ready to flip. Yes, I learned this with the first batch. Be gentle.

Per usual, I created a short video on TikTok of the making of these fabulous Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes. Click here to view. If you have not yet signed up for this social media platform, use my code 5SSIS800K0H06 to create an account.

In a saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil. Stir in the oats. Add the cinnamon and allow to cook for about eight minutes. Sprinkle in the pancake mix. Combine well. Pour in the heavy whipping cream. Warm through. Transfer the oatmeal to a bowl and refrigerate for twenty minutes. As mentioned earlier, as the oatmeal cools, it will thicken. The thickened oatmeal will form a better pancake.

Heat two tablespoons of butter in a non-stick pan. Form pancakes (patties) out of the oatmeal mixture to your desired thickness. Place in pan and allow to brown nicely on one side. You may have to form the shape a touch with your spatula once the pancakes are added to the pan. Let them brown without bothering too much. Flip and brown the other side.

This recipe will yield about six to seven pancakes. I would suggest preparing in batches, as you need room to flip. Plate and top with butter, ground cinnamon, brown sugar and maple syrup. Serve with a side of crisp bacon or sausage. You may be wondering how I get my bacon super crispy without curling up. Lay the bacon on a non-stick pan. Place in oven as it warms to 350 degrees. Flip halfway through.

ENJOY these fabulous Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes! Make them extra special with a topping of fresh fruit and whipped cream.

We loved the updated decor, new hot tub, and grill. Another bonus, they are very pet-friendly. The hosts kept in contact before and during our stay. They were always accessible. If you want to explore the area, they have all of this taken care of too. For me, the kitchen and dining area made me extra excitable. The lighting was just perfect for food photography.

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
