Orange Currant Pancakes

IMG_1028Good Morning Pancake Eaters–  Nothing says the weekend like a good stack of pancakes for breakfast.  But happily when you’re a teacher, you can pancake for breakfast any day all summer long!  Here’s a plain old Tuesday morning breakfast with the grand-girls.

And I’m happy to have discovered that when there’s yogurt in the recipe, the pancakes come out fluffier and so tender.  So these are kind of an “orange-currant scone” version of my favorite oatmeal pancakes– sweet with that friendly morning citrus flavor.  Hope you like them as much as we did!

ORANGE CURRANT PANCAKES
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour
4/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup unflavored yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup orange juice (from 1 orange)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup canola oil
grated peel of one orange
1/2 cup currants

IMG_1024Stir together the oatmeal, flour, baking powder and salt.  Then mix in the yogurt, milk, orange juice, vanilla and oil.  Finally fold in the orange peel and currants.

Heat a pancake skillet to medium and spray it with cooking spray.  Pour batter by 1/2 cupfuls onto the skillet and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through.
