Birthday cake oatmeal pancakes are fluffy, and made with just 8 simple ingredients in a blender. Perfect for a celebratory brunch, they can also be made gluten free.



  • 1/2 cup oats

  • 1 egg or 1/4 cup pumpkin puree 

  • 2 1/2 tbsp. yogurt

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 tsp. honey

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tbsp. sprinkles + fruit on top of the pancakes


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender except for the sprinkles.

  2. Pulse until batter forms, then stir in the sprinkles.

  3. Heat a skillet or a griddle and add cooking oil or butter to the surface. 

  4. Use a ¼ cup to portion out the pancakes batter onto the griddle. Once the edges puff up and bubble, flip to the other side. Repeat with remaining batter. 

  5. Top pancakes with fruit and more sprinkles if desired. Enjoy!
