Easy Oatmeal Pancakes


Here's a delicious recipe for some pretty great and pretty easy oatmeal pancakes. I love breakfast, I love pancakes, and I love to add oatmeal to almost anything bake-able, so the combination is natural for me. The oatmeal makes the pancakes a bit heartier than usual and these come out ready for any kind of topping you could desire!

Here are the dry ingredients being added into the wet ones...

And here's the finished batter- let it sit a minute or two and it will become a little more firm.

The pancakes on side 1...

And on side 2!

Oatmeal Pancakes
-2 eggs
-2 cups buttermilk (or regular milk with a few tablespoons vinegar added)
-6 tablespoons melted butter
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1 1/2 cups flour (could use part whole wheat)
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon sugar
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-2 teaspoons cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
-2 1/4 cups oats
Beat the eggs, then whisk in the milk, then the melted butter. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. The batter will firm up as time goes along, but the pancakes will be mostly the same, so don't worry, it's just the oatmeal absorbing more of the liquid!
Heat up your pancake griddle or a pan on the stovetop to medium heat.
Grease the griddle, then dollop 1/3 cup for each pancake.
Let cook 2 minutes per side, and then enjoy with whatever kind of topping you like!

These pancakes go well with traditional syrup and butter, or jam, fruit, chocolate chips, anything you like, so get creative!

The finished pancakes! Yummy!
Savor it!
love, rue
