You are probably aware by now how much I love oatmeal. I could probably eat it three times a day and perfectly happy. I was really craving some oats at dinner time, but figured I’d already had them for breakfast.

I’ll make oat pancakes instead!

I never make have the patience to make pancakes in the morning, so why not for dinner instead 🙂

Plus I had lots of fresh berries to make a topping since I never did get around to making another fruit cobbler.

Oatmeal Pancakes

1 heaping cup whole wheat flour (probably 1 1/4c)

1 cup old fashioned oats (I left mine whole to make a more rustic pancake- feel free to spin them through a food processor first if you’d prefer)

1/2T baking powder

1/4 t baking soda

1/4t salt

dash of cinnamon

1 T coconut oil (liquid)

1 c yogurt

1 c almond milk (or any kind)

1 egg

Mix dry ingredients together. Slowly whisk in coconut oil. Add in wet ingredients- you may not need all the liquid, just add until it looks about right for making pancakes. If you’re not using yogurt, try more milk or buttermilk for a richer flavor- you may need to use sweetener too.

Let better rest for a few minutes to thicken. Then make pancakes!!

pancake batter

This probably made about a dozen 4” pancakes. (Trust me, you’ll want leftovers. They’re even good cold.)

While I was letting the batter rest I got my fruit topping ready. I prepared it exactly the same way I did for the berry cobbler, only with just strawberries & blueberries- tossed them in a little bit of cornstarch & agave, then let them sit and get gooey.

I popped the berries in the microwave for about a minute, then spread them over the pancakes.

Yum.

Breakfast for dinner is a-okay in my book!
