Oatmeal Pancakes

Hello, sunshines.

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…

Oatmeal 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.
1 egg
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
