I have made these pancakes successfully with both old-fashioned rolled oats and steel cut oats. The steel cut oats keep their shape and add a bit of texture to the pancakes. My husband and I like the texture of the steel cut oats, but our three kids prefer the basic old fashioned oats.
(Recipe Source: Hillbilly Housewife)
2 cup old-fashioned oats
2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons oil or melted butter
1/2 cup flour (white or whole wheat)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
*For best results, you must start these pancakes the day before.
1. Start by soaking the oats in the buttermilk. Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight.
3. Stir in the dry ingredients.
4. Cook pancakes on a preheated greased griddle until done on both sides.
