Oatmeal Pancakes

I have always loved breakfast foods of all kinds.  I love the classics but I also like to try new and different twists on recipes as well.  I'm always looking for new ways to prepare breakfast foods and when I saw this recipe for oatmeal pancakes I knew I had to try them.

Pancakes are one of the classics that have been around for a long time and there's nothing wrong with them in their original form but it's always fun to try new things.  They are also very versatile; I've seen them served for breakfast but I've also seen them made with more of a savory taste and served as some other type of meal.  No matter how they are served and no matter what they are served with they are always a hit.

This recipe for oatmeal pancakes was no exception, it was wonderful too.  Having the oatmeal in the mix really made the pancakes a little more hearty and filling.  The texture was a little different than regular pancakes, so if you have a picky eater on your hands you may want to try these first before setting a plate in front of them.  One other plus about this recipe is the mix can be made in advance and then just scoop out the amount needed to make a batch, that really makes for a quick meal no matter what you have going on.  We thoroughly enjoyed these pancakes and we'll be making these many more times.
