Baking Tot had put in a request for pancakes one morning and being that I hadn't made pancakes in a while thought it was a brilliant idea. I wanted to try something other than our usual buttermilk or whole wheat pancakes and came across a recipe for Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes. They are perfect for the colder months. The oatmeal lends a hardiness that isn't found in our usual pancakes and the brown sugar adds a hint of caramel flavoring. It would be a great additional to your breakfast repertoire, as it is a quick recipe to whip up and the batter can be made in advance.
