Oat Milk Pancakes

Oat Milk Pancakes
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup milk (of any type)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce or melted coconut oil
1 Tablespoon molasses or honey
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch salt

Preheat a greased griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
In a large bowl, pour the milk over the oats and let stand for about five minutes. Mix in the egg, applesauce, and honey. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook the pancakes for about 2-3 minutes per side, until golden, using about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Makes about ten pancakes of this size.

This are healthy, wholesome pancakes that are thick and tasty. Nutrients stem from whole grain oats, flour, and milk. They may be a bit heavier than regular pancakes, but make a great base for a variety of toppings, sweet or savory. Try berries, egg, jam, nuts, yogurt, etc.
