Autumn Fever

Just in case you are staying a little more indoors lately, there is a recipe for that.

For the days when you stand by your window with a hot cup of coffee and hold it ever so tightly as you watch the leaves swirl in the wind. The cool air is almost felt through the threads of your shirt and the thought of a sweater feels comfortable.

This kind of day, was yesterday and the idea of enjoying some home made pancakes sounded good to me. But not just any kind of pancake the oatmeal kind, with apples, walnuts and warm maple syrup to bring the flavor of fall from the outside to the inside. I just had to share them with you.

My favorite Oatmeal Pancakes

2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup oatmeal (quick oats)
2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts

Pour milk over the oats. Add the oil and eggs, then the remaining ingredients. Using a 1/4 measuring cup pour the batter onto the hot griddle and place the apples and walnuts on each pancake. Flip over and let the pancake finish off cooking and browning the walnuts.

Note: I usually make an extra batch to store in the freezer. For easy and fast enjoyments, just
pop them into the toaster.

Autumn, hope.
