Another pancake recipe?!? I know, I know. But this one’s really good! I promise =). I’ve been on a serious pancake kick the last few months, but I admit that I’ve almost burned myself out…almost. These pancakes are like eating no-bake cookies for breakfast – and who doesn’t enjoy cookies for breakfast? =) The pancakes themselves are pretty healthy with oatmeal, oat bran, wheat bran, and whole wheat flour so it’s totally fine if you want to drown them in chocolate syrup ;). No judgement here. They’re also delicious with a thin layer of peanut butter between each one. If you have a peanut allergy, almond butter would be a delicious substitute. Enjoy!
