Personally, I often use an immersion blender and just blend everything in a tall measuring jug with pouring spout. If I'm not 100% concerned about getting picture-perfect round pancakes, I'll just gently pour the batter directly on the pan.

Tips for making pancakes with oatmeal
I add oats to pancakes all the time and there are a couple of ways to do it. This Banana Oatmeal Pancake recipe uses the blender method.
But in case you are curious, there are a few other ways you can make pancakes with oatmeal.
You can also zap the oatmeal in the microwave before adding it into the pancake batter, like in this Vegan Oatmeal Pancake recipe.
Alternatively, you can just add oats directly in a pancake batter, like in this Healthy Apple Pancakes. You get a bit of texture by doing so. You can also use oat flour, which is essentially finely milled oats.

I think of these banana egg oatmeal pancakes as healthy for several reasons.
