Tasty Thursday! Oatmeal Pancakes

I love breakfast and its a great meal to have any time of day. There is something special about Saturday morning pancakes with your family. Lucky for me, Quaker posted this recipe on their Facebook page this week. I knew you'd love it!


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 1/4 cups fat-free milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Optional Mix-ins:
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (do not thaw)
1 medium-size ripe banana, mashed, and 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup finely chopped apple, 1/4 cup chopped nuts and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

What to do:

In large bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder and salt; mix well. In medium bowl, combine milk, egg and oil; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Do not overmix) Add one of the stir-in options, if desired; mix gently.

Heat skillet over medium-high heat (or preheat electric skillet or griddle to 375°F). Lightly grease skillet. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter into hot skillet. Turn when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Turn only once.

Makes 12 (4inch) pancakes

Hope you enjoy!! :)
