Two of my all-time breakfast foods come together to make one yummy and filling breakfast.
We had our first major snow storm yesterday. Yeah, we had a little over twelve inches of snow. They had been forecasting for a few days before it came.
I am a worry wart, so, to say the least, I was a little worried about the whole snow storm broadcast. Yeah, Mike was out of town for work. Plus we live out in the country with a very long driveway and the roads to our house are not plowed too often. But I am happy to say that I made it through the storm and I made it home from work and back to work this morning.
Although I did get stuck in the driveway… but after snow blowing and shoveling I was able to drive the car into the garage for the night.
This is the kind of weather when I love such comfort foods as oatmeal and pancakes for breakfast. When I decided to combine the two together I was not quite sure what to expect. They turned out to be a hearty delicious pancake. This is the kind of breakfast that sticks with you throughout the morning.
Apple is another thing that I enjoy eating for breakfast. You know what they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Apple oatmeal pancakes are just as simple to make as other pancakes. I shredded the apples so that they would be cooked through, I didn’t want to have bits of raw apple in the pancakes. Also, I cooked these apple oatmeal pancakes at a slightly lower temperature, also to help the apple along.
So you are looking for a yummy breakfast that is sure to fill you up on and stay with you I would suggest trying some apple oatmeal pancakes.
- 1 apple about ⅔ cup shredded apple (I used a Granny Smith apple)
- 1 cup flour
- 1cup quick cook oats
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoon sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 cup milk
- Butter for frying
- Combine the dry ingredients and mix together. In another bowl add the wet ingredients along with the shredded apple and mix together.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. The mixture will still be a bit lumpy.
- Heat a griddle or a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the butter to the griddle or skillet and make coat the frying area. Pour about a ⅓ cup of the batter onto the prepared griddle.
- Cook until the top of the pancake bubbles and the underside is lightly browned about 3 minutes. Turn over and continue to fry until the underside is browned. Making sure that the center of the pancake is cooked through.
- Serve immediately with your favorite syrup.
