I’m so excited about today’s recipe! Not only because this is my new favorite way to make pancakes, but also because today is the kickoff to Brunch Week! We’ve been working on this for months, and it’s going to be amazing. 32 bloggers are participating and for the next week (May 5 through May 11) we’ll be sharing tons of recipes to celebrate Mother’s Day and kick of the summer brunching season. Terri of Love and Confections and Susan of The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen did an amazing job at organizing everything and lining up sponsors for a completely epic giveaway. (Read about the sponsors and get all of the giveaway details here.)

In addition to today’s recipe, I’ll be sharing a great salad on Wednesday and a great, brunch-worthy cocktail on Friday. But for now, let’s get back to those pancakes.

Raspberry Oatmeal Pancakes with Hazelnuts // @HealthyDelish

These Raspberry Oatmeal Pancakes are hands-down the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten. The batter is flavored with vanilla, buttermilk, and just a touch of brown sugar. The texture is spot-on: fluffy in the middle, with crisp, buttery edges. Ground oats keep the pancakes light and give them a subtle nutty flavor that really compliments the raspberries.

I was originally planning to add dark chocolate chips to the batter, but at the last minute I decided to leave them out. Instead, I topped them with toasted hazelnuts, more raspberries, and a drizzle of honey. It was definitely the right choice – I can’t imagine eating these any other way.

(If you’re not a fan of raspberries – or if they’re not in season – these pancakes are also delicious with strawberries ot thinly sliced peaches. You can also make them without any fruit at all, and serve them traditionally with butter and maple syrup.)

Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup hazelnuts
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup Gold Medal® all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon butter (for the pan)
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • honey, for serving
Preparation
  1. Heat a large, dry frying pan over high heat. Add the hazelnuts; cook, stirring frequently until light golden brown and toasted, 7-10 minutes. Chop and set aside.
  2. Add the oats and flour to a blender or food processor. Pulse several times, until the oats are ground and the texture is relatively uniform. Pour the flour into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a second bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir gently until just incorporated. Stir in the melted butter.
  4. Heat a little butter on a griddle or in a large frying pan set over medium heat. When the butter begins to sizzle, add enough batter to form several 3-inch pancakes, being careful not to crowd the pan. Drop several raspberries onto the batter. Cook 3 minutes, or until the edges of the pancakes look dry; flip the pancakes over, pressing dow with your spatula to squish the berries a little. Cook another 1-2 minutes, or until cooked through.
  5. Transfer pancakes to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve topped with more raspberries, toasted hazelnuts, and honey.
