With the added goodness of oatmeal, this recipe for vegan oatmeal pancakes with turmeric spiced delivers deliciously fluffy, healthy and downright tasty breakfast pancakes.

These vegan oatmeal pancakes are fluffy and slightly sweet with a smidge of nuttiness from the oatmeal which, also delivers a hefty fibre dose.

I am so happy with these oatmeal pancakes. They are fluffy, slightly sweet with a smidge of nuttiness from the oatmeal which, also delivers a hefty fibre dose. While I love straight-up traditional pancakes, making them healthier is as simple as adding a few choice ingredients.


Besides being a little bit delicious – I’ve even add oatmeal to ice-cream – oatmeal offers an abundance of good things to make your meals healthier. Oatmeal –

  • provides antioxidants
  • helps stabilise blood sugar levels
  • is low in calories but provides a smorgasbord of vitamins and minerals
  • may help support healthy cholesterol levels
  • relieves constipation

Besides all the healthy stuff, oatmeal adds a little body to vegan pancakes. As plant-based pancakes don’t use eggs, us vegans rely on baking powder to lift pancakes; adding oatmeal adds a little oomph. These vegan oatmeal pancakes are just the right amount of fluffiness to body – and the kid’s won’t even know the difference.


Besides being completely on trend – think golden lattes, ice-cream and cheesecakes – turmeric’s golden hue delivers oodles of health benefits. Long before it found its way in to our lattes, turmeric has been used as a healing food in the ancient Indian system of medicine Ayurveda. Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric offers powerful anti-inflammatory benefits As such turmeric is said to help a range of conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, toothache, bruises, chest pain, and colic.

Adding turmeric to maple syrup is a delicious way to add a little goodness to your breakfast. I also like to add a smidge of ginger too. Why not?

Add some sweet peaches and chopped walnuts and I am officially food crushing on these oatmeal vegan pancakes. The fact they are a little healthier than your average stack is just a happy bonus.  Enjoy.
