Blueberry Oatmeal Flapjacks

20130814-185946.jpg
Pancakes are a breakfast favorite in my house. The problem is, I don’t always have time in the early morning hours to make fresh pancakes for my crew. As the new school year will be starting up again next week, I have been making and freezing batches of pancakes to be thawed and reheated for busy school mornings. This recipe is hearty and filling because of the added oatmeal and berries. I try to use old fashioned oats instead of the quick oats for a heartier, whole grain flavor and texture. I first made this recipe when my children were very young. Every time I try to cut corners and make the pre-mixed, boxed pancake recipe, my kids complain about the bland, rubbery taste and texture. I have learned that my Blueberry Oatmeal Flapjacks are definitely worth the extra time and effort.

Blueberry Oatmeal Flapjacks

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup fresh blueberries

In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, vanilla, oil and egg. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well. Carefully fold in blueberries.
Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
