Oatmeal Pancakes II
I make this for my kids quite often. It is very simple. Preparing the batter in the food processor makes it that much easier. Serve with syrup and butter. Also good with applesauce!
My sister taught me how to make these. They are the best pancakes in the world. Enjoy! You may also add fruit to the pancake batter before grilling the pancakes.
Fresh buttermilk is the secret ingredient for light and fluffy cakes in this buttermilk pancake recipe.
I've tried a number of pancake recipes on allrecipes, and this is my absolute favorite. I use whole wheat flour rather than all-purpose and usually just sour skim milk w/a little vinegar since that's what I have on hand. (Who just has buttermilk sitting around??) I grind the oatmeal in my coffee grinder and usually throw in a couple dashes of cinnamon. This recipe stands up really well to additions as well - I've used this base to make banana pancakes (1 mashed banana) and mixed berry pancakes (a handful of blueberries and 3 sliced strawberries). This recipe has become our Sunday morning routine and it's a little less guilt-inducing than regular pancakes, without sacrificing any taste!
The pancakes were nice and heavy, but I thought they lacked a "full" flavor. I have 3 kids and they didn't care for them. I may try them again, but I'll add cinnamon, honey or banannas. They simply tasted like oatmeal to me.
