The Peaceful Mom for making pancakes.
I usually start with oatmeal that has already been sweetened by maple syrup. If yours isn't, add some to the batter, it makes a world of taste difference.
2 cups white flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
leftover oatmeal, up to 2 cups
1/2 cup coconut oil (I have forgotten the oil more times that I can count and they still come out perfect!)
1 to 2 cups milk depending on how wet the batter is
It is easier to make a half batch if you will only eat them for breakfast, however I always try to make a full batch and tend to end up with 4-6 pancakes extra. I then use them for lunch by making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The kids think they are getting an extra treat because we make them with pancakes but they taste fantastic. The pancakes hold up to being cut into quarters and are perfect for little hands (and mummy hands too). Lunch is served with a sliced apple usually so they can dip the slices into any peanut butter that falls out.
Plus, these are really easy to wipe up first thing in the morning, although it does require planning to use the leftover oatmeal from the last few days.
What do you use your leftover oatmeal for?
