Can’t believe it took me this long to try this! I’ve been wanting to make this for a really long time, but:

1. Didn’t want to wait for the microwave

2. Didn’t want to wash the bowl I mix the batter in and the plate

But I was out of fruits that day, so I had to suck it up πŸ˜›


  • pumpkin, cinnamon, ground ginger, flax, milk, greek yogurt, walnuts

I got a billion things I haven’t done…including the commerce assignment that’s due today. D: I also have a stats final on Monday, Chem lab report, Bio lab report and quiz next Thursday, then another Commerce assignment due the day after?!

I’m going to need a lot of oatmeal [preferably infused with caffeine and brain cells] to get me through the next 1 month and 11 day.

On a fun note, I destroyed a piece of chem lab equipment yesterday morning! I feel so powerful…like Mohiner Suresh from Heroes…except without the scary part πŸ˜€

Looks tasty. What amounts did you use of each for the pancake?

8. oatmeal - November 7, 2008

0.33 cup oats
2 tbsp whole wheat flour
2 tbsp pumpkin [you can use more–that was all the pumpkin I had left πŸ˜› ]
lots of cinnamon
0.25 tsp ground ginger
0.25 cup milk
0.25 cup water
1 tbsp flax

Microwave for 2 minutes! More liquids if you plan to make this batter the night before~

12. Maggie - November 8, 2008

That looks/sounds amazingly delish πŸ˜€

Just curious do you need to use baking powder for each pancake recipe or can you leave it out?

oatmeal - June 17, 2010

No need! I just use it ’cause I have a ton and don’t want to waste stuff :p

14. Elizabeth - June 16, 2010

Do you use both 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of milk? Or is it one or the other cause I tried both and it was too watery.

oatmeal - June 17, 2010

Yeah–those are the measurements I used, although I generally put a little less. If you find it watery you can try 3 things:
1. adding less water and/or milk
2. microwaving longer
3. spread out the batter more

Hope that helps! πŸ™‚

15. Elizabeth - June 17, 2010

Ok, thanks! I’ve tried to make mine look like yours using different measurements but I can’t seem to do it! 😦 I’ll try those 3 things though!

16. Elizabeth - June 21, 2010

Ok, so I experimented a little and used 1 egg white and 1/4 cup of milk/soy milk and it turned out nicely and to the consistency of what I wanted. And I am so addicted now. I can’t wait for morning everyday so I can have it! Thanks for the idea!
