Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes

The other morning, Aaron and I decided to make breakfast!  I love big breakfasts occasionally - I immediately thought pancakes would be yummy.

Aaron and I started brainstorming.  Here was our conversation:

Me:  What should we cook!!?
Aaron:  I think I want eggs.
Me:  Like... just eggs.
Aaron:  Yeah!  Sounds good.  (keep in mind, Aaron only eats egg whites - I think egg whites smell like fart)
Me:  Fine - I'm making pancakes

So much for making breakfast together!  Since I was making pancakes, I decided they would have to be EPIC pancakes.  Pancakes that would make Aaron's egg whites look piddly.

I love using, so I researched and found a recipe for Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes.  Below is the recipe for my EPIC pancakes:

  • 10 tablespoons quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (**Note:  I didn't use the salt)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar (**Note:  I use the splenda brown sugar... mmm)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (**Note:  Next time, I'm going to substitute the oil with applesauce)
  • 1 cup buttermilk (**Note:  Used fat free milk)
  • Decided to add a pinch of cinnamon
  • Decided to add a teaspoon of vanilla

  1. In a small bowl, combine the oats, flours, baking soda, salt and sugar. In another small bowl, beat the egg, oil and buttermilk. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Pour batter by 1/3 cupful onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown. 

They were SOOOO YUMMY!  Aaron ended up eating half, and the leftovers that were in the fridge mysteriously disappeared.  Just sayin...
