When I cook the things I make almost every day, like roasted vegetables or pots of oatmeal, I usually have a bit left over, or I make a bit extra on purpose. This foresight provides handy components for other dishes and saves time when making meals. A cup of cooked oatmeal adds moisture to breads and other baked goods. Stirred into this pancake batter, the oatmeal creates tenderness and a bit of chew. The molasses provides sweetness and enhances the creamy taste of the oats. These pancakes can be topped with your favorite syrup or jam, and they’re fantastic with homemade Apple Butter.
