Today marks the first Monday I’m not up at a bright and early 5:30 am. Isn’t that nice? I can spend loving time eating oatmeal pancakes not just running around like a wild chicken with its head cut off, hoping I’m not late for my class about human disease….
I am trying to get MORE carbs in here and there so what better way than oatmeal pancakes. Week-long carb load? Necessary. It all begins with pancakes baby.
Not just any type of pancakes…
I’m not sure if I have posted the exact recipe for oatmeal pancakes (not that it matters too much), but I haven’t had oatmeal pancakes in a solid year, so I’m counting them as new (because that is how I roll). I love a good pancake. I also love this recipe because, as a busy college student. I can have oatmeal pancakes made in a few short minutes.
½ cup wheat flour/oat flour/ pancake mix
½ cup instant oats (cooked) You can use rolled oats too, make them cooked. I use Quaker oatmeal…because it’s easy and I can do that.
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tablespoons baking powder
1 chopped up apple
And also sweetener to taste
splash of vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk (regular milk, almond milk…whatever kind of milk you need)
There are plenty of dry ingredient mix-ins like brown sugar, chocolate chips, or even bananas to make oatmeal banana pancakes.
Mix all the dry ingredients: oats, sugar baking powder (minus the apple). Then slowly add liquid ingredients.
Cook the oatmeal pancakes on medium-high heat, until bubbles form. Then flip. I added the apple into the oatmeal pancake after it had cooked for about a minute on the griddle. It added that nice little crunch.
Benefits of oatmeal pancakes are they are super dense and thick from the oatmeal. I have a huge appetite and I was struggling to finish (which never happens).
So on that note-Happy Monday and Happy Fall. If you are enjoying eating oatmeal pancakes, let me know.
I’ll be eating oatmeal pancakes and soaking up some vitamin D in this gorgeous weather that seems to be occurring. 🙂
Question for you:
1. Oatmeal versus Pancakes. You can choose oatmeal pancakes too.
2. How is the weather near you?
Potsdam has been unseasonably warm lately, but I’m not complaining
