There’s nothing better than Sunday morning pancakes. My Dad loved pancakes, so much that we served them at his celebration of life after we said goodbye to him. He used to make them for us almost every Sunday morning, and depending on their moods, I am trying to recreate the tradition for my own kids. This is a recipe that has been etched on the back of my mind for decades already. You’ll never buy a box of pancake mix again.


1 cup flour
1/4 cup oats
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tablespoon oil (your choice)

In a bowl or 4-cup measuring cup, mix together all dry ingredients. Mix egg, milk and oil together in a small bowl and combine with the dry. Mix until loosely incorporated, you want to have a few small lumps. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat and coat with oil. Spoon batter onto a hot pan and cook on one side until bubbles appear and stay open when they pop. Flip and continue cooking another 2-3 minutes.
