Oatmeal Pancakes

I was flipping through one of my church like cookbooks the other day and came upon a oatmeal pancake  recipe that I thought was intriguing.  I changed it up a bit and came up with my own version.  Katie was at a service project that morning.  Honestly, I don't know if she would like them.  She is not a fan of whole grains.  Ian on the other hand had six, and said they weren't his favorite, but he liked them.  Brian thought they were good as well.  I thought they were pretty good too.  The flavor reminded me of a bran muffin, maybe it was the molasses in them?  I also think if your family likes dried fruit raisins or blueberries would be really good here.  I'm really glad that I gave this pancake recipe a go, it's nice to mix up our Saturday morning brunch recipes.  I always feel good about serving my family healthy food.  Give this recipe a try, your family just might like them.

Oatmeal Pancakes

1 cup Old-Fashioned Oatmeal (processed in the food processor)
1/2 cup Old-Fashioned Oatmeal
1/2 cup Whole-Wheat Pastry Flour
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
1 Tablespoon Molasses
1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 1/2 cup Skim Milk
1/2 cup luke warm water
1 Egg
1 Tablespoon Honey
2 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seed

Mix all the ingredients together and let sit for about 10 minutes.  Heat a cast-iron skillet and add a bit of butter.  Ladle on skillet and cook until golden brown.  Serve with pure maple syrup.  I got 13 medium size pancakes out of this batter. Enjoy!

I think they sound yummy. I wonder if you substituted the whole wheat flour with whole wheat white flour if that may make them less "whole-grainy." (King Arthur makes a good whole wheat white flour). I find that I can more easily get whole grains into my kids if I do half and half - half whole wheat spaghetti, half the regular.

Thank you for posting this. We are trying to get away from Bisquick (I know, I know) and have tried 3 different recipes. One was "ok", other two were fails. I'm going to give this a go! Thanks. said...

i think i like tonya's idea as far as gettin the boys to eat the grains- i wonder if you could substitute honey for molasses- we don't ever have any mo-lasses around here but i usually have honey on hand. definately gonna try these!
oh, and i'm "friending" you on fb - "becton" is me
