I’m always looking for ways to put a fun twist on breakfast. Both of my kids love to eat and while their tastes vary from day to day, they’re always up for their favorites like pancakes or cereal. Honestly, who isn’t? But when we need a break from the ordinary these Oatmeal Cranberry Pancakes hit the spot.

Crunchy Oatmeal Cranberry PancakeThis homemade pancake recipe puts a delicious twist on plain pancakes and they’re guaranteed to get the family to the breakfast table in no time flat.

Homemade oatmeal pancakes are one of my favorite pancake recipes but after making them a lot over the years, I was ready for a twist.

One of the great things about pancakes is just how versatile they are. You can really get creative with flavors and additions for a yummy twist.

Cranberry has always reminded me of Fall and we do a lot of baking with cranberries so naturally dried cranberries were the perfect fit for this recipe.

They make.a great breakfast anytime of year.


Not a fan of cranberries? No worries! These oatmeal pancakes are pretty versatile and you can add all different types of additions for a flavorful breakfast.

Try adding these into the recipe in place of cranberry:

  • blueberries
  • chocolate chips
  • strawberries
  • banana pieces
  • peanut butter & banana
  • nuts  


Even though you’re making these pancakes from scratch, don’t think it takes a lot of work or ingredients. You’ll just need flour, baking soda, baking powder, brown sugar, rolled oats and dried cranberries.

Most, if not all, you probably have in your pantry already!

That sounds super yummy and I love that there is an added texture of crunch! Cranberry reminds me of the holidays, so these would be amazing on Christmas morning.
