When breakfast for dinner is in order, these Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes are just the thing! We like them for breakfast as well. These make a super simple supper, and a little more elaborate morning meal, but either way they are well worth it!
My husband grew up eating cold cereal for breakfast every day. Because old habits die hard, he still prefers to eat his shredded wheat or even the occasional Fruity Pebbles in milk. 🙂 I grew up with homemade breakfasts every day. My mom would make pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs and french toast, depending on what she felt like eating. 🙂
After I got married, for the first year, I made my husband breakfast every morning. Being newlyweds, he didn’t say anything right away, but later on, it came out that he really appreciated the warm meal, but would really just rather eat cereal. I didn’t complain in the least about his confession. I was working full time and was really only doing it out of habit and the goodness of my heart anyway. 🙂
Now, my kids request pancakes every morning. Their dad still enjoys his bowl of cereal, and we’re all happy as clams. It’s funny how much my husband and I learned about each other during that first year of living under the same roof.
Recipe adapted from Taste of Home
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
In a small bowl, combine the oats, flours, baking soda, salt and sugar. In another small bowl, beat the egg, oil, buttermilk, and honey. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown.
The brown sugar and honey give them a yummy sweetness without being overbearing. A combo of half white, half wheat flour is also a perfect choice, and the oats make them totally satisfying! This is a breakfast that will stick with you for a while!
Do you make breakfast every day or are you a cold cereal type of person?
