Healthy and delicious oatmeal pancakes

I enjoy eating pancakes for breakfast on weekends, and especially for special occasions. However, once I tried these pancakes, I could not go back to just plain buttermilk pancakes. These pancakes have oatmeal in them which make them more hearty. Since these pancakes, have to be made from scratch, I usually make up a batch of the dry ingredients. In the morning, all I have to do is mix the wet ingredients with one cup of dry ingredients.

We celebrated Valentine’s day yesterday and to make this pancakes a little more special for the kids, I added chocolate chunks to part of the batch. I love eating these pancakes with bananas and strawberries.

These pancakes keep really well. Leftovers can be frozen or refrigerated for the next day.
