Oatmeal Cinnamon Pancakes

   

 

If you love pancakes, but are trying to eat a little healthier like me, then this is the perfect Pancake for you! They are soooo good! These babies were easy to whip out in the morning using my Ninja Blender to mix the batter.

OATMEAL CINNAMON PANCAKES

Start with Oatmeal. (Big Surprise!)

I used Skim Milk to bring this batter together.  BLEND AWAY!

At the very end, stir in a little Vegetable Oil. Not much. Just enough to help your yummy pancakes not stick. You could also use Coconut Oil which would be a super awesome alternative.

Heat up your griddle. I like using my big electric griddle for pancakes. (I got three of these babies for my wedding shower! LOL)

Make silly faces at your baby who is starving to death waiting for breakfast! (He is a hungry beast in the morning! I just love him!)

The problem with pancakes is keeping the first batch fresh and warm while you make the second and third batch. I found that setting my oven on warm and tossing my pancakes on a baking sheet as they finish keeps them at a good temperature without getting soggy.

Of course, I am sure you know how you like to eat your pancakes. I am a simple butter and syrup girl, but top with your favorite pancake toppings and enjoy!
