Honey Oatmeal Pancakes

My recipe of the day with Improv Cooking Challenge (our monthly event) is all about oatmeal and honey. For my recipe, I made honey oatmeal pancakes, along with an easy three ingredients recipe for homemade blueberry pancake syrup that can be made in under two minutes (the recipe is linked below).

I think this offers a great start to your busy day!

Great for Making Ahead

It is just two of us here now, so I had more than I needed for breakfast! But the great thing is that if you wrap the pancakes in wax paper to keep them from sticking together from moisture, you can refrigerate or freeze for later and easily microwave to warm them up.

I’ll do this kind of thing often because as much as I love to cook, I really don’t like cooking before I have had my coffee and usually am hungry right away, so I like breakfast in a hurry. I imagine those of you with kids to get off to school   are in a hurry too! I know I was when my daughter was young. She would have liked these pancakes too.

I used to make a more involved version of blueberry syrup, but you know what? Why?

When you see the recipe for that one, I doubt you will make it any other way after that. The flavor is fabulous and who can argue with three ingredients and two minutes? (It actually take 1.5 minutes….)

Breakfast should be easy. Because we really don’t need any more problems at the start of our day than we have to. Once off to a running start, things just seem to go more smoothly all day long!

Be sure to check out the other recipes below. I see Cindy has a recipe for pancakes up too, so you will be stoked for flapjacks today. And that’s a good thing!

  1. These sound really yummy and I love having make ahead options as we do have a busy family with early times to get out of the house. I will save this to try very soon.

  2. Since I can only eat one pancake at a time, I’m a huge believer in freezing them. I would happily make space for these guys in my crowded freezer!

  3. When the kids were young I always kept pancakes in the freezer for a quick breakfast. I had forgotten about that. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. This looks like a delicious breakfast for my son, who loves pancakes. Never tried an oats honey pancake, bookmarking this.
