Swap Time!

This round was another SRC-style swap, hosted by A Taste of Home Cooking. I'd like to take a minute and just say that I give her so much credit for putting these together. It seems like an awfully big undertaking and a very big commitment. So thank you! I really enjoy doing the swaps and appreciate all the time and effort you put into them:).

This round I received Ommy Noms food blog. I was so excited when I got my e-mail and saw this because I have made a couple things off her blog before and had more recipes bookmarked to make. Perfect! After some serious deliberation I decided to make her recipe for Maple Oatmeal Pancakes. I've been loving pancakes lately. I'll make a large batch and wrap them by two's, and stick them in the freezer for a quick breakfast that doesn't have to taste quick!

I'm a breakfast lover, it's a necessity for me. I can never get away with skipping breakfast like some can, or only survive on a cup of coffee and a banana. I need food! So when I'm in a hurry, or a half asleep state, it's nice to know I've got delicious pancakes in the freezer- one minute away from my enjoyment.

Maple Oatmeal Pancakes

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add milk, oil, eggs  and maple syrup, stir until fully combined. I also added 1 tbsp of flax meal to the batter.

Lightly oil a non stick skillet over medium high heat. Pour batter into skillet, 1/4 cup at a time. Turn when bubbles form on the surface. Cook until second side is browned.

And how can you forget the final step?: Smother them in real maple syrup...mmm :).

Makes about 7-8 pancakes.

It was hard not to eat all 7 or 8 in one sitting...but I managed to display some self control and put some away in my freezer :).
