Oatmeal Buttermilk Cinnamon Pancakes

Oatmeal Buttermilk Cinnamon Pancakes for my birthday!!!
makes 20 pancakes
(recipe found on Kitchen

My husband made me bday pancakes!! So good!!
Let me tell you...these pancakes are a little taste of heaven. OMG! It was my bday this week and Karl got up extra early (which tells me a lot because this guy loves to sleep) and made me pancakes.

AND not just ANY pancakes...semi-healthy pancakes!! What a guy. I'm one lucky gal! Oh, and they kept us full for hours!

2 cups rolled oats
3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 large free-range organic eggs
1/4 cup maple syrup
melted butter for brushing griddle
additional maple syrup for drizzling (umm, we used Nutella, flaxseed, whip cream and fresh raspberries for our toppings!!!)

1. Stir oats into 2 cups buttermilk in a medium bowl and let stand, overnight, covered and chilled.

2. Preheat oven to 225 F

3. Whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt until combined well. Stir in remaining 1 cup buttermilk, eggs, and maple syrup into oat mixture, until just combined. Stir in dry ingredients until just blended but still lumpy.

4. Brush a large non-stick skillet or cast iron griddle with a little butter and heat over moderately high heat until droplets of water scatter over the griddle. Pour the batter onto the griddle by 1/4-cup measures and cook pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until golden, brushing the griddle with some of the melted butter as necessary.

5. Transfer pancakes as they are cooked to a sheet pan and keep warm in the preheated oven. Serve pancakes topped with real maple syrup.

Only 170 calories every two pancakes!!! 7 grams of protein too!

Karl's reaction: "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!" *chews* "Damn...these are good."

My reaction: Holy cow!!! These are awesome!! These seem like they should be naughty!! Oh man...feed me more!

Best husband of the year award goes to Karlos Koester!! See pic below. Isn't he cute?
