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.
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 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!
