My 16-month-old daughter loves her oatmeal in the morning! But she’s still at an age where giving her a spoon equals oatmeal in the hair, so I have to feed her myself. This is fine, but there are mornings where I’d rather hand her something she can eat with her hands.
The solution: put the oatmeal in pancakes! I found this great recipe from Cooking Light and adapted it a bit and the results were delicious! My daughter crams these in her mouth faster than she can chew and I don’t even put syrup on them!
Whip up a double batch and freeze some to take out whenever you need a pancake fix!
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 egg
- splash of vanilla
- Mix dry ingredients in bowl.
- Add egg, buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Mix until just combined.
- Heat non-stick griddle over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Use about 2 ½ tablespoons of pancake batter per pancake.
- Flip pancakes when the bubble on top and cook until lightly browned.
