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.

  • Combine flours, brown sugar, wheat germ, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Whisk eggs, applesauce, and green food coloring into the oats mixture. Add more green food coloring if desired. Stir in flour mixture until batter is just moistened.

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour batter onto the griddle using a 1/3 cup measure. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Place pancakes on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Notes:

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.
