Oatmeal pancakes with strawberry sauce

Yields 8 (4-inch) pancakes


For the pancakes:

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • Nonstick cooking spray

For the strawberry sauce:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, tops removed, hulled and sliced
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup sugar (add a bit more if your strawberries aren't very sweet)
  • Confectioners' sugar to sprinkle as garnish (optional)


For the pancakes:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, add the egg and beat it slightly. Add the milk and vanilla and mix together to incorporate.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
  4. Spray a skillet or griddle with the nonstick cooking spray. Over medium-low heat, when the skillet is hot, add enough batter to the pan to form a 4-inch circle.
  5. When bubbles form and pop on the tops of the pancakes and the bottom turns golden, flip it and cook for another minute or so.
  6. Continue until all the batter is used. Set the pancakes aside and keep them warm.

For the strawberry sauce:

  1. Add the strawberry slices to a food processor and pulse it just a few times so the strawberries are chunky.
  2. Add the water to a saucepan over medium heat. Add the cornstarch and sugar, and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the strawberries to the saucepan and simmer for a few minutes until the mixture bubbles and thickens.
  4. Remove the sauce from the heat, allow it to cool slightly and add to a serving bowl.
  5. Drizzle the mixture over the warm pancakes and sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar as a garnish.
