Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancake
Pancakes are definitely a fave breakfast here!  After enjoying them for breakfast, there are always extras.  Storing these delicious extra pancakes in the freezer to locate on another busy AM is a great plus!  Who has time to make pancakes every time a family member dreams of them for breakfast???

***After the extra pancakes cool, place each in a sandwich bag.  Then, place bagged pancake stacks into a Ziploc Freezer Bag.  Into the freezer they go for other mornings!

Just as my DH & I have our individual fave baseball teams (that Red Sox vs. Yankees dilemma) we are partial to specific pancakes.  Me - I really like Awesome Oatmeal Pancakes - light, full of fiber, buttermilk, nutmeg & cinnamon.  I like anything containing Oats.  My DH would much rather dine on Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes - light, containing blueberries, buttermilk, nutmeg & cinnamon.  Yes, just like the photo in my header, only just not a plateful at once.

Earlier this week there was a little compromise going on...Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes.  It was another take on this 2-step Oatmeal Pancake!  This AM two frozen pancakes/person were placed on plates and popped into the microwave.  An easy quick nutritious breakfast on a chilly busy AM.

***The Oats soften in the Buttermilk overnight.  Makes a light pancake!  Yummy!

I'd like the oatmeal and the buttermilk! Great tip about freezing. I do that, so much easier when the kids were rushing to get ready for school.

Blueberry pancakes are wonderful for breakfast. Yours look delicious. I love oatmeal but have never made oatmeal pancakes, have to try that soon. I pretty much freeze them the same way.
