Freezer Friendly Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

It’s that time of year when I just start wanting to stock the freezer. It’s like nesting when you’re pregnant times 4. When it comes to the morning hours, I need to do all that I can to survive them. And one of those things is stocking the freezer (and getting in the habit again of doing this weekly!) with pancakes, muffins, etc. for breakfast and lunchboxes.

I had some blueberries in the freezer from a sale earlier this summer, so I decided to whip up some blueberry oatmeal pancakes. Drizzled with some maple syrup, divine!

{Best price on organic maple syrup anywhere is Costco!}

Add these babies to your next freezer cooking day or batch cooking session :)

They are easy to thaw in the toaster if you want to have them for breakfast…or you could toss them frozen into a lunchbox and they’ll be thawed by the noon hour!

Odd that these blueberry pancakes have no blueberries in them…

Sorry! I’ve updated the recipe! :)

I was traveling home from NY late last night and didn’t have wifi!

Will a 1/4 applesauce work? Not sure about the measurement and how well freezes. The girls have a ton of health issues. 😊

I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with paper thin, weird textured, not very appetizing pancakes. Should it really be 2 3/4 C milk? Looking at the recipe now, that appears to be a lot of liquid..

I just made them this morning and mine were very thin as well. I added more flour which helped, but I’m thinking I’ll just try 2 cups of milk next time instead and see how that works. Good pancakes though!

Love the base for this recipe, but I had to tweak it as well due to the texture. I reduced to 2 c milk and uped to 2 c flour. They turned out perfect! Looking forward to easy school morning breakfasts from the freezer stash as well! Thanks for the recipe!
