Oatmeal Pancake Recipe

When Eric and I first started dating his mom would make oatmeal pancakes on occasion.  I was convinced I would hate them.  I like pancakes and I like oatmeal, but I am not a big one on mixing stuff together.  So I would always regretfully decline eating them.  Then one day they got smart and tricked me!  They told me they were regular pancakes, so of course I agreed to eat them, and loved them!  After I was finished they let me in on the secret, I really just ate oatmeal pancakes.  Ever since I have loved them, and honestly could not tell you the last time we ate normal pancakes.  Our poor kids probably know no other pancake other then oatmeal ones!  So I thought I would share this quick and easy recipe that you could make for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  More then likely you have all the ingredients on hand, too!

Oatmeal Pancake Ingredients:
Milk
Apple Cider Vinegar
Oatmeal (I use the quick oats)
Eggs
Butter
Brown Sugar
Flour
Baking Soda 
Salt
2 bowls (one small, one large)
Step 1:
In the small bowl mix together 1 1/2 Cups sour milk...this is easy...1 1/2 C milk and 1 TBSP of apple cider vinegar, stir in 1 Cup of oats...let sit
 Oats
 I normally use Skim Milk, but today we were out, so we had to use Lucy's milk, 
but any old (well not expired) milk will do!
Let sit about 5 minutes

Step 2:
In the larger bowl add 1/4 Cup melted butter, mix in with 2 eggs and 1/4 Cup brown sugar...I usually mix the eggs, add the butter, then stir in the brown sugar

Step 3:
Mix the ingredients from Step 1 into into the larger bowl, then add 1 Cup flour (I use whole wheat flour and honestly you can not taste a difference, and I have used white flour, both are fine), 1 Tsp baking soda, 1/2 Tsp salt...mix all together
Before flour, baking soda, and salt...
 And after...

Then scoop out and cook on the griddle or in a pan!  We usually add some chocolate chips in ours.  I would love to tell you how much this recipe makes but we usually get a different amount each time, our pancake sizes vary!  You can probably bet on 10, but I usually double the recipe since it's so easy and freeze all our left overs. 
 For the ladies...
 For the mommy :)
 My little helper!

My girls are spoiled and they only eat a hot breakfast, so we devour the leftovers in no time!  Enjoy!


**Disclaimer...I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and I don't know where she got it from, so if your great grandma made it up, kudos to her!  And still enjoy the pancakes!**
