Oatmeal Pancakes


After spending quite some time making special oatmeal, only to find out I was the only one eating it, I decided to turn some of the leftovers into pancakes. I found a recipe for oatmeal pancakes over at Smitten Kitchen, which gave me the basic measurements. I felt really lazy though and changed a few things, so feel free to follow my recipe or hers, as you see fit. You can use any cooked oatmeal of course, but my special oatmeal has cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar, and apple. Just saying. It's good.

Kids liked these a lot - until I mentioned that there was oatmeal in it. So a tip to other parents out there, keep quiet!

Oatmeal Pancakes
250 ml cooked oatmeal
2 eggs
300 ml milk
3 tbsp melted butter 
1 tbsp honey
300 ml flour
100 ml rolled oats
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder

Butter for frying
Maple syrup to serve

Start by stirring together the cooked oatmeal, eggs, milk, melted butter and honey. To this, add the flour, oats, sugar, salt and baking powder. It should be a fairly thick batter. (Add a little more flour if you feel that yours is too thin.) 

Now, let it rest for an hour or two, if you can. If not, I'm sure it'll be ok right away, but I was able to leave mine for a few hours and that seemed to work very well. 

Cook small pancakes on medium heat, in butter. Serve with anything you like, I'm partial to maple syrup as the picture clearly shows.

I love oat pancakes, and these look absolutely wonderful! I have never tried making them with already cooked us, so I might try this :)

Have a lovely Friday and a lovely first Sunday in the advent to come :D x

Åh nu känner mig lite trög är det havregrynsgröt som du gör pannkakor av?

Ja precis! Det låter knasigt men blev faktiskt jättegott!
