Oatmeal Pancakes

I originally saw this recipe in a cooking light magazine. I have since adapted it to my hungry swimmers. Its a hearty pancake that heats up well leftover too! I sometimes use whole wheat flour when I have it instead of white flour for the extra protein. Typically my kids eat these a couple times a week during peak swim practices!

Add the flour
Add 3 TBSP of sugar ( you can substitute brown sugar or honey if you prefer)
I use 2 tsp of baking powder (you could use one tsp each of baking powder and baking soda) the powder makes them dense, using soda will make them a little fluffier)
Add two tsp of cinnamon! (extra flavor and good for your metabolism)!
Whisk all the dry ingredients together.
Add 2 eggs, the milk and vanilla and melted butter.

The dry ingredients are usually everything I have on hand in my pantry. So it makes it easy to make them pretty quick.

Dry Ingredients

1 Cup Oatmeal (I don’t use the quick cooking kind, but you can)

1 Cup flour (or whole wheat flour)

2 tsp baking powder

3 TBSP sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

1 tsp vanilla

2 TBSP melted butter

1 1/2 cups milk

1 tsp vanilla

I use a dry griddle when I cook these pancakes because there is butter in the batter, I don’t think it needs any more oil or extra butter in the cooking.

Mix all the wet ingredients together, and add to the dry until well combined. I use a dry griddle when I make these pancakes. Because the melted butter is in the mix, I don’t use any more when I cook them. Serve with your favorite maple syrup, or confectioner’s sugar or fruit.

My kids like them with powdered sugar!

I hope you enjoy these pancakes as much as we do. Honestly, making homemade pancakes are really easy to do. I enjoy cooking for my daughters, especially breakfasts! We often have breakfast for dinner on busy weeknights too.
