I was out of all my usual pre-run oatmeal toppings at home last Sunday, so I decided to make oat pancakes. As I started whipping them up, I started thinking about flavor combinations, and decided to try something a little different.
I could not have been more happy with how they turned out. They were fluffy, yet hearty, and the flavors were perfect. They are also the perfect thing to make for your valentine this morning! *Quick, run to the grocery store tonight!*
