easy quick oat pancakes
When it’s Saturday morning and you just want your mom (for no particular reason other than the fact that she’s your mom), it’s time to whip out Aunt Jemima.
Oh yes I did just go there.
If you’re going to have syrup, make it butter rich.
And come Saturday it’s officially the weekend, though I may start celebrating on Fridays every now and again.
Syrup and pancakes are necessary.
Wait. Come back.
Don’t let the texture or look scare you away. These are just as good as those white fluffy pancakes you’re comparing them to in your head. In fact, they’re probably even better.
I promise these taste delicious. Just make sure you add some extra chocolate chips for good measure (or lack OF measuring skills).
Easy Quick Oat Pancakes
-1/4 cup of quick oats
-1/4 cup of flour (I used GF white rice flour but you could easily use another 1/4 cup of quick oats or any other flour)
-1/2 cup of milk of choice (soy, cow’s, almond, rice, etc.)
-1 teaspoon of baking powder
-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
-dash of cinnamon
-some (more) chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together. Let sit for at least five minutes. Grease/butter pan and add batter to medium-hot skillet. Flip when bubbles appear on top.
*These stuck to the pan for me at first so I just greased it more between pancakes.
Toppings of choice should include chocolate, syrup, peanut butter, butter, or anything else that reminds you of home.
Enjoy. It is Saturday.
No excuses. Play like a champion.
Make these now.
Do you change-up your breakfast routine on the weekends? Usually I don’t. I really stick to my favorites, but this morning I wanted something different and only pancakes would do it!
What are your favorite pancake toppings? If I’m going to have pancakes, I want at least some syrup. I’ll also add yogurt, peanut butter, jelly, or anything else I’m in the mood for. It depends what I’m craving!
