I have been in the mood for cinnamon all day today so I started out my morning with these oatmeal raisin pancakes. These pancakes are nutty, have a nice texture, and taste just like an oatmeal raisin cookie! If you desire less texture and prefer a smoother batter, soak the oats in the buttermilk overnight and add the remaining ingredients the following day.
Oatmeal Raisin Pancakes
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour (or combine whole wheat with spelt or AP flour)
1/2 c old fashioned oats
2 c buttermilk
2 tbsp brown sugar (or one packet Stevia)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
4 tbsp butter, melted
½ tsp vanilla extract
1/3 c raisins, finely chopped
Place oats in buttermilk and let stand. Whisk dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Combine buttermilk mixture with dry ingredients. Add butter, flavoring and raisins and mix well. Batter will be lumpy.
Preheat griddle or cast iron pan. Brush with butter. Ladle batter onto griddle or into pan. Cook on the first side until bubbles form and begin to pop. Flip the pancake and cook until golden brown. Keep cooked pancakes warm until ready to serve, in a 200 degree oven.
