Place 4 cups oatmeal in a mixing bowl; buzz the rest in an electric blender at high speed until moderately fine, then reserve to use in rolling out dough.Add remaining ingredients to bowl and mix well. Knead on a board lightly dusted with the fine oatmeal for 1 minute, roll 1/4” thick, and cut into rounds with a 3” cutter. Cook on an ungreased griddle 5 to 6 minutes per side or until lightly browned and cooked through.Serve hot with plenty of butter.
