Oatmeal Pancakes

I first had an oatmeal pancake at my mom’s house. She was caring for my grandfather who was fighting Cancer, and was cooking from a Cancer diet cookbook.

I hate to admit it, but I was surprised that they were so good! I remember just loving the deeper complexity of the oatmeal, the texture and the sweetness.

White pancakes have their place, but this is the kind of pancake I want as my everyday pancake.

Pre-heat a non-stick pan over low/medium heat. Lightly oil the pan and wipe with a paper towel to remove the excess. Keep the paper towel to re-oil the pan periodically.

*Tip: If your pancakes are sticking, lower the temperature and allow them to cook for a longer time.

For each pancake, pour about  ¼ cup batter. Cook about 3-5 minutes, until bubbles start to appear on the top.

*(adjust heat as necessary to prevent burning).

Flip carefully with a metal or very thin spatula, and cook until golden on the other side, 1-2 minutes more.

Transfer to a platter and keep warm in the oven on the lowest setting.

*( I just heat my oven to 170 degrees and then turn it off)

Serve warm with desired toppings.
