Oatmeal Pancakes

One of my blog subscribers and overall supporters, Beth, suggested this very creative breakfast combination – oatmeal pancakes. What a great idea, pairing the heartiness of oatmeal with the tastiness of pancakes. Below is her recipe idea combined with a recipe for “Good Old Fashioned Pancakes” so we all have some measurements to work with.

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon honey
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions:
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, honey and melted butter; mix until smooth. Add in oatmeal until the desired consistency. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Drizzle honey or real maple syrup on top. Fresh berries or nuts could be nice toppings too. Let us know how this works out or if you have other topping ideas. Thanks, Beth, for a great idea!

  1. YUM! My girls loved making these with me this morning and all 4 of us loved eating them. I will admit that my hubby and I both ate an extra oatmeal pancake telling ourselves that they were healthy! SOOOO YUMMY!
