This morning I was wanting to wake up my sleeping kids with the yummy smell of breakfast cooking. I chose to make these whole wheat oatmeal pancakes, and I'm so glad I did. They were really great, and very filling.
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup flax seed
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup milk
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons chopped pecans (optional)
I like to combine my wet ingredients first (buttermilk, milk, applesauce, egg, and sugar), in my mixer, and then add in my baking soda, powder, and salt. Then I add the flax seed and flours in a little bit at a time until everything is thoroughly incorporated. Then I stir in my chopped pecans.
Pour about 1/3-1/2 a cup of batter on a hot griddle. After a few minutes, when tops get bubbly and sides get golden brown, flip and cook the other side. Serve hot, with your favorite pancake toppers.
