Oatmeal Pancakes





I always enjoy making these, not only because they taste so good...but because I don't always eat very healthy and these pancakes make me feel like I'm doing something healthy for myself ... LOL 


Here's the recipe

2 cups of Old Fashioned Quaker oats or quick cooking oatmeal
2 cups of Buttermik
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 tablespoons of Sugar
1 teaspoon of baking soda 
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of Salt

Add oats and buttermilk to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight (this gives the pancakes their distinctive texture). 

Add eggs, honey and oil. Stir to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together.

Lightly oil a non-stick pan or griddle. Pour batter in 1/4 cup increments. Watch for the tops to bubble. Turn pancakes and cook until golden on the second side.

**If you don't have buttermilk handy (which I never do) Just add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to a measuring cup then fill with milk until you have a measurement of 2 cups. Let sit for 10 minutes then stir and add to your oats. I also heard that lemon juice works the same way as the vinegar but I have never tired using the lemon juice way.
