I can’t believe it is almost November. It is crazy how this year went by so fast; I told my friend recently how I am falling in love with the Fall. It is a beautiful season. The days are getting colder now, and the leaves are starting to fall. I love pumpkin spice; It is the time of the year to go to Starbucks and order that delicious pumpkin spice latte. Also the apple and pumpkin picking, and everything else it’s like heaven to me.
Traditionally I used to eat oatmeal with milk, cinnamon, and other spices. But a few years ago I came across the delicious cinnamon, apple and oatmeal combination. Omg!!! It was my go-to breakfast for months. I was obsessed. But also these ingredients make the perfect pancake recipe.
This is my first fall recipe. I have been focusing so much on the technical part of the blog (again) that I have lacked a bit, but don’t worry I’ll get back in track. You see I am a bit of perfectionist. I also want to improve my blogging skills.
I know I am always talking about balance. But this recipe has just the right amount of brown sugar. Therefore it’s not necessary to top this with maple syrup. I wanted to make an apple puree, but I did not want to add water, so I used the milk instead. I used baking powder, baking soda and the egg as the leaving agents.
Sometimes it is hard to prepare breakfast in the morning. I relate to that because I live in New York. Time flies in this city. If you don’t have enough time to make breakfast. I suggest you prepare this in a blender or food processor. Just add all the ingredients in a blender container, make sure it is well combined. Pour some of the mixture in a non-stick pan, and you should be good to go.
I added just one tablespoon of melted butter to the mixture. Also, make sure you make these in a non-stick pan as I mentioned. However, if you don’t have one, you can make these in a greased pan. Make sure you flip each pancake at the right time.
The first few times I made this recipe, it did not come out right, because the oatmeal was taking forever to cook. As a result, the pancakes turned dark. I used rolled oats. But one thing that helped to make it better was to grind the oats in a blender. As a result, the pancakes had better consistency. The pancakes were fluffy and soft after doing this.
When I first made the recipe without grinding the oats and adding the all-purpose flour. The flavor was there, but the pancakes were too dark. Make sure you use medium-high heat. Avoid using high temperature.
In conclusion If you have never tried oatmeal pancakes, you should try this recipe. It is perfect for this time of the year.
May God bless you!
