  • 2 cups instant or old fashioned oats I prefer instant
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk divided
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, combine oats and 2 cups of buttermilk. Allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add eggs, melted butter, vanilla and remaining 1/2 cup buttermilk to the oat mixture. Whisk until combined. Add flour mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined, being careful not to over mix. Set aside while you preheat your griddle.
  • Place a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Generously grease the griddle with butter. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, drop/pour the batter onto the griddle, slightly spreading it as you pour it. Cook until golden brown, then flip and continue cooking until cooked through.
