These Buttermilk Oatmeal Pancakes are packed with hearty oatmeal that melts away into each sweet, pillowy, bite. This recipe was passed down to me by my grandma and is sure to be a family favorite.
Do you remember that one time when you thought you ordered all of the Christmas presents, but you really didn’t, and the kids had nothing to open on Christmas? No? Just us?
Yeah, that really happened. So here I sit on Christmas Eve morning pecking at my website rather than watching the kids unwrap presents, as originally planned. Ooopsy.
My wife and I had a slight miscommunication. I thought she ordered them all on Amazon last weekend, but as the week wore on no boxes from the FedEx Santa appeared at our door. Becoming suspicious, I questioned my wife about where they were and though she was also initially perplexed, it suddenly occurred to her that she never actually placed the order because she wanted to double check which credit card to put them on.
Luckily I got a number of new toys in the past month, so I’ll just wrap those up so the kids can watch me open presents and then I’ll prance around the living room crooning about how Santa loves me most!
I bet they will be really good next year.
(Don’t worry, we finally ordered all of the presents through Amazon Prime and most of the gifts will arrive today)
If you are looking to make your Christmas memorable too, you can either also fail to buy your kids any presents, or you can make my grandma’s Buttermilk Oatmeal Pancakes for a special Christmas morning breakfast.
My grandma shared this recipe with me a few weeks before she passed away and it is absolutely spectacular. I never had oatmeal pancakes before, and quite honestly I enjoy these just as much as traditional pancakes.
Making Buttermilk Oatmeal Pancakes is easiest on an Electric Griddle. Sure you can make them all one by one in a skillet, but it may be New Years before your family eats breakfast. I think every household should have a quality griddle.
