Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes

A delicious twist on pancakes, this healthy version is well-received by kids and adults. It's nice to wake up and have the batter already prepared. Make these pancakes healthier by serving them with cooked down frozen fruit made with a little fruit juice and pure maple syrup or raw honey, rather than serving them with traditional processed pancake syrup. Try my Blueberry Chia Sauce for an easy and healthy recipe to accompany these delicious pancakes. Top with plain Greek yogurt sweetened with pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
