Oatmeal Pancakes and the Future

Oatmeal Pancakes :) Soaked too!
The tasty and warm breakfast treat!

Wait...



(husband)
"Whats in that bowel?"

"Oatmeal pancake batter that is soaking."

"Why do you have to ruin pancakes by putting oatmeal in it?!?"

"They aren't ruined, they taste really good. Trust me I've had them before."

(murmur)
"I hate oatmeal."

"What?"

"Huh?"

"Why do I put up with this man?"

Anyway,
because the man doesn't make or bake anything harder then heating a can of soup he didn't have a choice.

(The future part of the post is this: I wanted to do it in this post but I can't yet; I want to write how much it cost me to make all of my recipes. I live in the southeast USA so you might have lower or higher prices, but I want to show that you can eat better and still budget! I'll update the posts as I make the recipe again.)

I found this recipe at multiple websites so I'm not going to link it anywhere.

Oatmeal Pancakes 

Ingredients:
2 cups dry oatmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat, spelt, or buckwheat flour (Yeah! I had a itty bitty tiny bag of ww flour in the freezer!)
2 cups buttermilk 
2 medium eggs
2 tablespoons coconut oil (I used all meat shortening - one day coconut oil, one day!)
1/4 – 1/2 cup whole milk (I just used more buttermilk)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
(optional - I added blueberries! Yum!)
Instructions:
The night before, combine the oatmeal, flour and buttermilk in a large bowl. Stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and set overnight. 
(Now some sites said that you could put this in a blender and liquefy it if you want - I didn't, but I might try it out next time.)
The next morning, add the eggs, oil, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
Stir together. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk till it’s a good pancake consistency. Mix until just combined.
Fry the pancakes on a hot, buttered griddle. They’re ready to turn when the top side is bubbly and puffed up and looks cooked around the edges.
Brown the second side and transfer to a plate. (I kept mine warm in the oven) Continue until all of the batter is used up.
Serve with lots of real butter and maple syrup. 
This recipe serves about six.

Blueberries!


Nugget!

"So Honey how do you like the pancakes?"

"They're ok I guess."

"Would you like them better if you couldn't feel the oats?"

"Yeah."

"Ok next time then. :) "


I saved the extra in the freezer, I just put the pancakes, single layer on a cookie sheet in the freezer and once they were hard I vacuum sealed them
