I’m sure you’ve heard of oatmeal pancakes, but have you ever had pancake oatmeal?
I pray not, because I sure would like to take credit for inventing it.
As the only one in my family of four who craves pancakes almost on a daily basis, I am often left making a whole batch with no one to share it with (or begging my dad to make it for me). And into the fridge goes the leftover batter, waiting for me for another day.
But, I asked myself on a whim, what if you could turn leftover pancake batter into something else? Like, oatmeal?
As much as I love pancakes, oatmeal is like my savior. It’s healthy, it can be flavored as if it were a pancake, and it’s ready in three minutes. So turn pancakes into oatmeal…it’s the perfect breakfast.
Pour 1/4 cup oatmeal into a bowl and add 1/2 cup leftover pancake batter. You can add in different toppings- I recommend a teaspoon of maple syrup, a sprinkling of cinnamon, a few walnuts or pecans, and half an apple or banana.
