How To Make oatmeal pancakes

  • 1

    NOTES For optimum texture and health benefits use old fashioned rolled oats. Warm your buttermilk and eggs to room temperature. Protip – save some money and make your own buttermilk at home. Simply add 2 tablespoons lemon juice or white vinegar to a large measuring cup. Then fill the measuring cup up to the 1 3/4 cup line with milk and stir to combine. Let sit for 5 minutes and then proceed with the recipe. Mix the ingredients just until incorporated. Pancakes can become tough if overmixed. To reheat non frozen pancakes in the microwave place 2-3 pancakes on a microwave-safe plate. Cook in the microwave at 60% power for about 20-30 seconds. If frozen increase the time to 30-60 seconds. Store leftovers in a zipper bag in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Freeze for up to 2 months in heavy duty freezer bags.
