Oatmeal pancakes

 

Growing up I had my fair share of pancakes but like most people, probably ate pancakes that were made with flour as the main grain ingredient. As an adult, I wanted a version of pancakes that had a little more umph so I looked for a good oatmeal-based recipe. After all, oatmeal pancakes should have a decent amount of rolled oats in my opinion.

 

A lot of recipes called for a token amount, maybe 125 ml, or a 1/2 cup. This recipe uses a hefty one and a half cups of rolled oats! You can make these will milk or your favourite milk alternative. I’d recommend 100% organic soy beverage. That way you know you’ll be getting a beverage that uses the whole soy bean and not just a beverage that uses water and isolated soy protein. As well, like milk, soy beverage delivers on protein making these both high fiber and high protein.
