Oatmeal Pancakes

oatmeal pancakesTwo breakfast favorites in one? Oh yes.

We make pancakes or waffles a couple of times a month for weekend “big breakfasts.” I love blueberry or buckwheat. The kids tend to like theirs plain. I recently stumbled on a recipe in a magazine for oatmeal pancakes and decided to customize it to my own tastes.

Oatmeal Pancakes
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup buttermilk plus 2 tbsp
1 egg
2 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix buttermilk and egg and add oats. Let this mixture sit for about 10 minutes. Then mix together with the other ingredients. Heat a griddle or pan and pour about 1/4 cup for each pancake. Flip when the bottom is brown. Serve with maple syrup.

These were fan-friggin-tastic. Seriously. I LOVED them. I made one batch and it made 10 pancakes, but next time I’m going to double it because there was nearly fighting over the remaining pancakes. The oats give this a nice texture and it feels really homey and filling like oatmeal, but it’s definitely not a boring bowl of oatmeal nor does it have that “I’m a hippie eating pure whole grain oats”  flavor and texture you can sometimes get with something that is overly oat-y. The cinnamon gives it a nice flavor. I’ll be making these again very soon!
