Hearty Oatmeal Pancakes

"My husband and I are trying to eat more oatmeal for its health benefits, but we get tired of having a bowlful every day." Kathy Thompson of Glendale, Kentucky explains. "These moist and fluffy pancakes give us the good grains that we need...and still taste like a treat. We love them with turkey bacon on Sunday morning."

    We like our pancakes a little thicker, so I ease up on the milk.

    These make a lot and I love that they have oats in them. I usually make them using gluten free all purpose flour so hubby can eat them. I have also made them using reduced fat milk and applesauce instead of oil.

    Most store-bought pancake mix is so high in sodium we turn to this recipe for a healthier alternative. I keep the dry ingredients, omitting the salt, in an airtight container to have" at the ready" for ease of preparation. Buttermilk gives the pancakes that light & fluffy texture.I sometimes add a hint of cinnamon or cinnamon sugar to make them special.
