Fluffy and festive thanks to sprinkles , these birthday cake pancakes are made with oat flour made from Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats, and can also be made gluten free by using specially marked Quaker Gluten Free Oats and all gluten-free ingredients.

From savory to sweet, hot to cold, oats can provide goodness any time of day. I like to think of them like a blank canvas to inspire culinary creativity, which is exactly how I hope you feel about all of these unique, and delicious recipes that use oats! 

For over 140 years, Quaker has been the leading expert in oats, committed to combining science, scale, passion and expertise, and dedicated to researching all that this powerful grain has to offer. Their  nourishing oats are produced with high standards of quality, taste and safety. 

The oats used in each variety of Quaker Oats – instant, quick, old fashioned and steel cut – are 100% whole grain, and ounce per ounce, they all provide similar amounts of fiber, vitamins and minerals.

You definitely can’t go wrong with a bowl of oatmeal topped with seasonal fruit and nuts or seeds, but I also challenge you to think outside the oat bowl and use oats in these birthday cake oatmeal pancakes recipe below that are fun, nutritious and easy to make!
