Green Oat Pancakes for St. Patrick's Day
Here is a wholesome breakfast alternative for your St. Patrick's Day celebration. They are a little less fluffy pancake and a little more hearty goodness. These are based on Taste of Home's Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes. I made them a little healthier. And green. We served with applesauce, strawberry simple syrup, powdered sugar, or maple syrup. You could also try molasses. Originally posted on my blog.
Recipe Summary test
If you don't have buttermilk, add 4 tablespoons vinegar to 4 cups milk and let stand until curdled, about 5 minutes. Use as directed in the recipe. If you use quick-cooking oats, you can skip the soaking.
You should be able to decrease the amount of sugar, but I did not try it.
If you want to make a simple syrup topping: Combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a saucepan; heat to dissolve sugar. Add 2 cups chopped/sliced fruit (such as blueberries, strawberries, apples). Simmer for about 10 minutes while you are making your pancakes.
