Oatmeal Pancakes


Pancakes are normally left for weekend breakfasts in our house, unless I can make them ahead and have them waiting in the freezer.  One Saturday morning, I was feeling pretty ambitious, so out came a new pancake recipe. I've never made Oatmeal Pancakes before, but this recipe seemed a lot easier than others that involved using a food processor or blender to pulverize the oats.

The batter was thinner than my usual recipe, so the pancakes themselves were a little flat, but still hearty and chewy. I've made these twice, and the second time I left the oat, soda and buttermilk mixture sit for a bit longer than the recommended five minutes (OK, so I emptied the dishwasher while making breakfast - multi-tasking!) and that seemed to make a more cohesive batter that was easier to work with.

The leftover pancakes were frozen (using this wax paper technique), and that left enough for a quick breakfast another day!
