Oatmeal Pancake

Oats are my favourite. It is full of fiber and protein. It helps to maintain healthy skin and in weight reduction. They can improve blood sugar control and help to lower cholesterol.

Above all, it is very stomach filling. Eating filling foods in the morning helps to reduce the intake of calories the rest of the day. Other than Oatmeal porridge and Oatmeal muesli, Oatmeal pancakes are the best idea for busy mornings.

I make pancakes atleast once or twice in a week. So I had to come up with new new varieties in pancakes and these oatmeal one’s are so easy to make with very less ingredients and with easy steps. It is also very fluffy and tastes delicious.

One can use maple syrup, chocolate syrup or sauce, caramel syrup or sauce, apple sauce as topping for any pancakes. Even sprinkled sugar on top, nutella or a scoop of ice cream can be used as toppings.
