Every week I prepare quick and easy breakfast foods to help simplify busy weekday mornings. Pancakes are usually at the top of the list, with creative variations of apple, carrot cake and strawberry banana on a steady rotation. My little lady, on the other hand, is a creature of habit. Greta loves Honey Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes! Topped with sunflower seed butter and served with a side of fruit, this is a hearty, healthy breakfast staple that she enjoys every single morning!

Most of my pancake recipes follow a similar format, using whole wheat flour and buttermilk, so I look to the other elements of the recipe to mix things up.  To make this Honey Oatmeal Raisin Pancake recipe, I modified my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pancake recipe and used honey in place of the brown sugar. While we all enjoy the original recipe, using honey added just the right amount of sweetness to deliciously complement the cinnamon, oats, buttermilk and raisins. The honey I used in this recipe is Midwest Raw Sunflower variety from Bee Harmony Honey.

Bee Harmony Honey is 100% raw honey handcrafted for the love of bees. It’s made the way nature intended, with bees drawing nectar from wildflower blossoms across superior forage lands, tended by trusted beekeepers, using responsible practices that respect the environment. That’s why Bee Harmony is the Beesponsible® honey!


What I noticed using Bee Harmony Honey is that it has a vibrate, intense honey flavor that is unique and delicious. Bee Harmony Honey is available in several regional varieties. For example, if you live in Hawaii, there is a Tropical Raw Hawaii variety. Or if you live in the Great Lakes region, you may want to try the Regional Raw Great Lakes honey. Being from the Midwest, that Midwest Raw Sunflower was calling my name.

Honey Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes are a regular household favorite ~ we can never have enough and never want to run out. I often make a double batch and store extras in the freezer. Come morning time, simple defrost them in the microwave and serve as desired. Honey Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes are delicious plain or topped with a favorite nut butter, syrup, or (of course) a sweet drizzle of honey!

Honey Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes
Yields: 4-8 servings
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • ½ cup whole wheat purpose flour (or all purpose)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons honey (I used Bee Harmony Honey)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup raisins
  1. In a medium bowl, combine oats and buttermilk and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  3. After 5 minutes, add eggs, oil and vanilla to buttermilk mixture, whisking until combined.
  4. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, stirring until just moistened (Note: batter may be lumpy). Add raisins, folding until combined. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  5. Preheat nonstick skillet to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  6. Spoon batter onto skillet by the ¼ cupful (adjust to desired size) (Note: If batter is a little thick, use the back of your spoon to spread/shape the pancakes). Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until bubbles form and the edges look set. Flip pancakes and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden.
