I found this recipe one morning on allrecipes looking for a fun new pancake to try while picky husband was working. He is not a fan of pancakes with any other flavors than the traditional buttermilk pancake. Not even blueberry. I, on the other hand, love just about any pancake you can make, and the kids do as well, so when he is working it's fun to try something a little different. These were amazing and everyone loved them, a make again pancake for sure! In the original recipe the pancakes were served with jam, which was great, we also liked them with some raspberry syrup, as shown.
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Pancakes
adapted from allrecipes.com
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups skim milk
2 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons natural peanut butter (I used Jiff, we like it with both smooth or crunchy)
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup strawberry jam (or fruit syrup, we love the Smucker's brand fruit syrups when we don't have any homemade around)
Combine oats, flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Set bowl aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the skim milk, eggs, peanut butter, and melted butter. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients, being careful not to over mix the batter.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray (I don't do this since our griddle is nonstick). Pour 1/4 cupfuls (a little more for larger pancakes) of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side, about 2 minutes per side. Serve with strawberry jam.
