Quick Oatmeal Pancakes

This morning I wanted to try a different take on our usual homemade pancakes, so I did a search on allrecipes and found this  little gem.

They turned out dense and filling and very yummy,  even without syrup (which I didn't realize we were out of). My sometimes picky 6 year old loved covering them with sprinkles, and she loved eating them too!

Here's the recipe: 

Quick Oats Pancake 
From (modified slightly by t-shirtsandtulle)
Makes approx 8 pancakes.

1 cup milk
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk 
2 teaspoons butter to cook with (more if needed)
sprinkles (if desired)

1. Place 1 cup milk in microwave safe bowl, heat in microwave until bubbling, about 2-2.5 minutes
2. Stir the oats in the milk, set aside.
3. Milk the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together in a large bowl.
3. Whisk the eggs, melted butter and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add 1/4 cup milk.
4. Pour oat mixture and egg mixture into the flour mixture in the large bowl. Stir to combine. 
5. Melt 2 teaspoons butter on a griddle (med. heat) and pour about 1/3 cup pancake mixture into the hot melted butter. Add sprinkles if desired. Heat 5-6 minutes (until top layer of batter bubbles); flip and cook other side 5-6 minutes or until evenly browned. 
6. Serve with a maple or fruit syrup. Enjoy!
