The next time you make oatmeal you might consider making a double batch so you can try these pancakes. They are light yet they have a nice tooth because of the oatmeal. I like to top them with my grandma’s sauteed apples, which she made all the time.

Oatmeal Pancakes, Makes about 8 servings

1-1/2 c. cooked rolled oats (old-fashioned type)

2 eggs

1-1/2 c. milk

1/3 c. olive oil or melted butter

2 t. baking powder

1/3 c. brown sugar

1-3/4 c. unbleached all-purpose flour

1 t. vanilla

1 t. cinnamon

Cold or lukewarm oatmeal is fine for this recipe.

Slice up three sweet apples (I used Galas.) Stir them as they cook. When the apples start to soften, sprinkle 3 T. of brown sugar over the top.

Continue to cook and stir for another two-three minutes, until the apples glaze. You can sprinkle them with additional cinnamon if you like.

Serve the apples warm as a topping for the pancakes, with butter and maple syrup.
