Oatmeal Apple Pancakes

These were some good pancakes, but the boys didn't love having the apples in it.  I found this recipe in a book where the high point is the recipes.  The author is JoAnn Fluke, and she has lots and lots of recipes.  I have lots of them I want to try, but most of them are cookies.
Oatmeal Apple Pancakes
1 small apple
1 T lemon juice
1/2 c flour
2 T sugar
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 t vanilla
3/4 c buttermilk or regular whole milk
2 t vegetable oil
1 egg
Peel and core the apple.  Cut it into very thin slices, place them in a bowl, and sprinkle them with lemon juice.  If using a sour apple, sprinkle with sugar.
Place flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a food processor.  Process together.  Add the vanilla extract, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and egg to the dry mixture in the food processor.  Scoop out 1/4 c for each pancake on griddle.  Place 5-6 apple slices on top of each pancake, then press in lightly.  Flip pancakes to continue cooking.
If you notice, I forgot to put the amount of oatmeal in when I wrote down the recipe, so I just put in 1/2 c oats, and the recipe worked well.  We made 9 pancakes for this and the calories per pancake were 113 per pancake.  Owen gave them an 8, Noah and I gave them a 9, and they really were good, and pretty healthy.  We enjoyed them.

  1. I made this recipe for your dad, but he didn't like the apple in them either, so we have not had them again. Oh well. Glad to see you back. Hope little boy is doing well. Love mom
