Oatmeal Pancakes (Recipe) with Fresh Strawberries

Sunday supper at our house is always pancakes, usually chocolate chip pancakes.  Lately I've wanted to try something a little different and healthier.  So I went visited my friend Google and discovered a recipe for Oatmeal pancakes that uses oats and whole wheat floor.



Drop a tablespoon of plain yogurt (or whipped topping) and a handful of sliced farm-fresh strawberries on top and you have a yummy Sunday supper.

Want to try it for yourself?  Here's the recipe:

Oatmeal Pancakes from Cooks.com

1 1/8 c. milk
1 c. old-fashioned oatmeal
2 tbsp. oil
2 lg. eggs, beaten
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Combine the milk and rolled oats in bowl and let them stand at least 5 minutes. Add the oil and beaten eggs, mixing well. Then stir in the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Bake on a hot lightly oiled griddle using 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Turn them when the top is bubbly and the edges are lightly dry.

Yields:  Hard to say.  I tripled the batter and added a lot more milk.  Probably 2-3 dozen pancakes.

I have to confess the pancakes did not taste as good as they looked.  Maybe we're too accustomed to "regular" pancakes or maybe I didn't cook them correctly.  My kids declared them a little better with syrup but overall this isn't a recipe I'll try again.

Do you have a tried and true pancake (oatmeal or otherwise) recipe to share?
