I have been on a mix making kick lately and this recipe for Oatmeal Pancake Mix has been on my pinterest food board for a little while now. My two oldest children get up for school and leave before I get up and one of them will "forget" to eat breakfast many mornings. She claims milk makes her stomach hurt, so I have been trying to think of things she will eat instead of cereal. This may sound easy, but this child is incredibly picky. I don't usually give in to a picky eater, you eat what I prepare, but I feel so guilty when they go to school without having eaten anything!!
I found this recipe for Oatmeal Pancake Mix from Mel's Kitchen Cafe and I couldn't wait to try it out. It has had rave reviews from so many people that I decided to give them a try.
I followed Mel's directions exactly as she explained, but I used powdered eggs and buttermilk powder instead of the fresh variety. And I may, or may not have, switched the powdered buttermilk measurements and added 1 C of powdered and 1/4 C water instead of the other way around. Sheesh, it's always something with me and cooking!! I think I salvaged the mistake and cooked up 38 pancakes. I was going to just make the mix and 1 batch of pancakes, but I figured, since I had everything out already I may as well cook up the whole batch. The pancakes are light yet hardy! They will keep you feeling full until lunch for sure!! Next time I make them I will add ground flax seed and maybe some chia. They will be delicious with some peanut butter slathered on top and hopefully make it easier for a certain daughter to grab her breakfast and go.
