Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

IMG_9476Hi there- Sunday night pancakes!  When our kids were small, just about one hundred years ago, we’d often have Sunday night pancakes to start off the week.  And now that we have our Micah and Jodi along with 3 little girls staying for a bit, it’s back to pancakes.

It’s pretty nostalgic (and also delicious) for me flipping them on the grill.  Good to have a full Sunday night table again…

BLUEBERRY OATMEAL PANCAKES
1 cup flour
1 cup uncooked oatmeal (quick oats)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup unflavored yogurt
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup oil
1 pint (little more than a cup) blueberries
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Then mix in the yogurt, milk, eggs, oil and vanilla.  Last fold in the blueberries and walnuts.*

Pour out the batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a medium hot griddle sprayed with cooking spray.  These are a little thick** so cook them til they’re golden and cooked through.  Makes 12 to 14 medium sized pancakes.

Serve them hot with lots of syrup or powdered sugar– or as my grand-girls prefer, with both (and maybe a few sprinkles) !

*I used and extra big handful of walnuts, because I love those things.
**If you want thinner pancakes stir in a couple more tablespoons of milk.

      • hey Rhonda – I guess we all now realize that there is nothing to be embarrassed about that we run round our kitchens trying to make a memorable enjoyable meal in honour of our friends, but that it is in fact a sign that we really care about them and there is no shame in that!
