I have not tried these pancakes. I'm posting this for safe keeping. I found this recipe in Scholastic Parent & Child. Tip: To ensure pancakes that are tender and light, take care not to overmix the batter.
In a food processor, grind oats until they are the consistency of flour. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla.
Pour liquid ingredients into flour mixture and whisk until just combined--a few lumps are ok.
Lightly coat a griddle or nonstick skillet with oil. Heat to medium-high and spoon 2 tablespoons (1/8 cup) batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on top and batter is set about 1-2 minutes. Using a thin, flexible spatula, flip pancakes and cook until golden brown, 1-2 minutes more. If desired, serve with warm pure maple syrup.
