Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes

Remember the old story of the pancake that rolled out the door and down the lane? Everybody and their second pup chased the pancake hoping for a bite. My family would definitely have been right in there with the others in hot pursuit of that hot cake. They really like pancakes. I mean a lot. They would have them twice a week if I'd make them. It seems like I always feel a little unsettled in my stomach and have a fuzzy feeling in my head after I eat them. So, I don't make them often. I think that's about to change!

I made a big brunch for the family this morning because everyone was home. Scrambled eggs, sausage patties, and a side of hot pancakes. I was feeling homemakery; so, I tried a variation of my regular pancake recipe. We all prayed; and then, I started serving. We let everyone eat their pancakes as they get them so they'll be hot. As I was serving, I kept hearing comments about how wonderful the pancakes were. I was thinking that they were trying to butter me up and get me to make them more often. Then, I tasted them myself. Wow! I loved them. What's even better, they loved me! I didn't feel ill at all. I just had to share the recipe with you.

Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes
This makes about a dozen pancakes.
Whisk together:
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
4 T canola oil
2 T honey
In another bowl, combine dry ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat flour (1 1/2 cup if freshly ground)
1 cup oats
1 T baking powder
1 t salt

Mix it all together just until smooth. You may need to adjust the flour if you have just ground it yourself from soft wheat. I used 1 1/2 cups of freshly ground flour. This recipe is just so good for you.
I bake these on my electric skillet set at 350 degrees. I put the lid on after I turned them to help them bake because they're thick. You can also bake them on a griddle as you would other pancakes. Be sure to use cooking spray because the honey makes them stick a bit. Don't try to turn them too soon. Make sure the edges are dry and the middle is starting to bubble.
These are just so tasty, you must try them.
Thrilled to find a pancake recipe that is healthy and delicious!
