Saturday morning was already going to be an extremely busy morning but the kids had asked me on Friday to please make pancakes in the morning. I said yes remembering I wanted to create an oatmeal pancake recipe. Sure enough early Saturday morning came and as soon as I remembered my obligation and realized I had not planned ahead, I ran to Martha Stewart online for a recipe. The first recipe that popped up is ‘Cinnamon-Oat Pancakes‘ so off we went to the kitchen.
Since I rarely find myself following a recipe exactly and I am always try to up the nutritional content in some way, I opted to vary the recipe by using 1 cup of unbleached organic flour to 1 cup of organic whole wheat flour. I then followed the recipe to a ‘T’. The result was tasty and the kids enjoyed them however, I think they would have been less dense if I had cut the oats down to 1 cup.
Do you like your pancakes light and fluffy? If yes, then follow her instructions and see how they come out but I have to wonder: Which is better nutritionally? To use all AP flour with all the oats called for OR use some whole wheat flour but cut down on the oats?
