Oatmeal Pancakes

This week has been crazy.  Instead of my normal 3-day work week, it's been 5.  We have a big shindig on Tuesday, and well, that just means more work.

Therefore I feel like my blog has been put on the back burner, which irritates me to no end, because that is not how I want it.  I want to give you a fun post to read at least every other day.  This week that hasn't happened.

Forgive me.

But, look what is today!  These glorious oatmeal pancakes.  Lately, Saturday mornings are pancake mornings at our house.  The little miss sees me start making them and immediately gets fussy, as they just can't get into her mouth fast enough.

Just like her mother.

I was out of regular flour (the horror), so I improvised.  These were delicious.  I've been using Paula Deen's pancake recipe, and so far no matter how much I fiddle with it, they are still great.  I love you Paula.

Oatmeal Pancakes
1/4 stick butter, melted
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/4 c. sugar
1 3/4 c. milk
1 1/2 c. oat flour
1/2 c. coconut flour

*To achieve the oat flour, simply put old-fashioned oats in your food processor or blender and give it a whirl, pulsing until it resembles a course flour.  Generally, about 2-3 cups of oats, will give you enough flour for this recipe.

Mix together wet ingredients, then incorporate with the dry ingredients.  In a hot skillet, cook pancakes until desired doneness.  Serve with butter, syrup, peanut butter, honey, etc.

Guess what tomorrow is.  Little Misses 1st birthday.  I'm heartbroken.  I don't want her to grow up.  At this time last year I was having my first contractions and waiting for her arrival.  She has been such a blessing to us.

So tomorrow we are headed to Iowa City to meet family and have a great meal.  Stay tuned for her birthday cake, it's cute, adorable and homemade by me.

    The pancakes look delish, and I love that they use coconut flour.
