Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

I love breakfast for dinner. It’s easy, fast, and cheap! I added reduced-calorie breakfast sausage links for the kids. I might be a tad paranoid about raw meat, so I always buy the fully cooked ones in the freezer section. Pop them in the oven for 20 minutes or so and they puff up nicely, brown a bit, and I don’t have to cut each one open to look for tiny spots of pink meat.

Anyway, I started with my dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Mix in an egg, milk, vanilla, and a tiny bit of oil.

The batter doesn’t look very pretty, but the results are tasty, I assure you. 🙂

Put them on a heated griddle. One batch should make about 10 pancakes, although I made train pancakes for my boys, which made the actual count a little off.

Let them cook until browned on both sides. I decorated mine with fresh fruit and honey (not figured into the calorie count).

I spread about half container of 2% Greek yogurt on my pancake, added fresh fruit, and then drizzled with honey. Yum!!!

  1. This looks delicious, but I wanted to comment because I never thought to use cookie cutters to make pancakes, and it is a great idea! I tried it last night. I put too much batter in the first, and I think next time I will spray the cookie cutters with non-stick spray, but my nine year old was so excited that I made a heart and star pancake! Thanks so much for the idea!
