Shrove Tuesday- Oatmeal Strawberry Pancakes
Wanted something lower in fat. Decided to try oatmeal pancakes . Adapted a Canadian Living recipe . One thing I learned a long time ago from my brother in law Keith use no oil in the pancake batter makes them fluffier.I also left out any extra sugar since I am using maple syrup as the topping will be more than sweet enough.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk or soured milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg slightly beaten
Add remaining ingredients stir to just combined do not over stir.
This recipe serves 4 or 2 if you love pancakes.
These pancakes are heavier than the usual pancake yet light. Far better from scratch then any box mix and so easy.
