Vanilla Oatmeal Pancakes

I think breakfast might be my favorite meal of the day. Probably because its a great excuse to eat something sweet before noon. Is it just me or are pancakes the ultimate breakfast comfort food? There is nothing more delicious than a heaping pile of pancakes generously smeared with some real butter and doused in maple syrup. My mouth is watering now.... Growing up we always seemed to have a box of Bisquick on hand for Sunday morning pancakes. I looked forward to the weekend just so that I could get my pancake fix.  Now as an adult and a "real foodie", I wanted to create a pancake recipe that had the same comforting flavors of my childhood as well as a great nutritional punch. Bisquick contains trans fat for those of you who didn't know:( I love pancakes that are hearty and grainy and have a little substance to them. Adding oats to the pancake batter creates a texture that is satisfying and will most certainly hold you over until lunch.  For an even more satiating meal, add some sliced walnuts or almonds to the batter.  These pancakes are sure to be a hit with the whole family. Every time I make these pancakes, my daughter devours every last bite!

Vanilla Oatmeal Pancakes
Makes 8-10 Pancakes

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cup milk (I have tried using whole milk and coconut milk)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 egg
pure maple syrup and organic butter
sliced almonds or walnuts (optional)

Heat skillet to medium and pat with butter. Wisk egg, milk, vanilla, and  coconut oil. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir. If you prefer thinner pancakes, add a splash more of milk.
