In lieu of the still cold wintery weather, here is hands down the best pancake recipe ever (at least in my humble opinion ;-)). My Mom used to make these for my brother and me often on weekends while we were growing up. She dubbed them "Mighty Goods" because they are in fact, ULTRA good.
The batter takes maybe 5 minutes to whip up, and then its just a matter of pouring the dough onto a lightly greased skillet and flipping the pancakes!
Super easy. Well worth the effort. These are light, delicious, just a hint of sweetness to them, but with a hearty texture, being filled with oats. They taste fantastic either drizzled with maple syrup or spread over with peanut butter and then topped with syrup!!
Oatmeal Mighty Good Pancakes
--1.5 cup of rolled oats (I like the Quaker ones you find in a cylindrical tube at the grocery store, but any kind should do)
--2 cups of low fat milk
--1 cup of whole wheat flour
--1 tbsp. brown sugar
--Cinnamon (I probably sprinkle around 1-1.5 tablespoon of it in the batter, but you can use a bit more or less to taste)
--1 tbsp. baking powder
--2 eggs, beaten
--1/4 cup of butter, melted
In a large bowl, mix the oats and milk together. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Stir together the flours, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Add the melted butter and eggs to the milk/oat mixture. Then mix the dry ingredients into the oats/milk mixture. Stir until well combined.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto a warm, greased skillet. Cook until the edges are golden brown and the top begins to bubble a bit. Flip the pancake. Cook until the other side is light golden brown.
Now top a few with the delicious toppings I mentioned and dig in!
SO addictive and delicious. Speaking of which, I had these for dinner tonight!! :-D
